Southern rock heroes The Cadillac Three look set to debut new music at the Download Festival later this month after revealing the release date for latest long player Legacy.

The band will unleash their latest album on August 25 via Big Machine Records and charts a whirlwind period in their brief but brilliant history.

Legacy is fuelled by lyrics of life moments – from weddings and babies to celebrating their road-tested brotherhood.

The three Nashville natives have crafted 11 songs exuding pure honesty over driving melodies in typical TC3 style.

The band will travel the world this summer, performing for their rabid fan base at Download Festival in Paris, France with Linkin Park on June 9 and in the UK with Aerosmith on June 11. They also have a full summer tour of the USA and Canada, taking in cities across North America.
