Plant and his band of incredibly talented musicians are touring in support of lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roarr, which was released in September.   The band is made up of Justin Adams (bendirs, djembe, guitars, tehardant, background vocals), John Baggott (keyboards, loops, moog bass, piano, tabal, background vocals), Juldeh Camara (kologo, ritti, Fulani vocals), billy Fuller (bass, drum programming, omnichord, upright bass), Dave Smith (drum set) and Liam “Skin” Tyson (banjo, guitar, background vocals).

“The whole impetus of my life as a singer has to be driven by a good brotherhood,” Plant said.  “I am very lucky to work with The Sensational Space Shifters.  They come from exciting areas of contemporary music.”
