Blues Pills

Lady In Gold - Black Vinyl Edition

    Easily one of the breakthrough rock bands of 2014, Blues Pills have been enchanting fans and media alike since they unleashed their self-titled, UK Top 75 debut in July of that year. This young American-Swedish-French quartet create a very unique, intense and extraordinary rock atmosphere while at the same time having a major mainstream appeal that takes you right back to the time of Blues Pills’ ancestors Aretha Franklin, The Original Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Cream. Driving basslines, grooving drums and guitar solos from another planet by the only 19 year old Dorian Sorriaux, harmonized and tied together with such easiness and delight by Elin Larsson’s incredible voice.

    With the idea to take soul music combined with blues and rock & roll and turn it into a new force of unimaginable energy, intensity and freshness, the blonde archangel and soul saviour Elin Larsson will guide you gently into a new world; the band’s empire of soulful rock. Elin’s powerful lyrics are full of emotion, her jazzy-soulful voice unfolds an outstanding beauty with a refreshing new take on the timeless and noble art of rock & roll.

    The band’s stunning 10-track debut, produced by Don Alsterberg (Graveyard), was dubbed “one of the most exciting releases of the year” by Classic Rock Magazine, while Mojo predicted that “good times lie ahead for Blues Pills.” The album was rapidly backed by serious bout of roadwork. A sold-out November 2014 club run was followed a month later with a full UK tour as special guests to Rival Sons. Such was the demand for the band that another April headline run was announced immediately after and a triumphant mainstage slot at the inaugural Ramblin’ Man Fair wrapped up the album’s touring cycle.

    Blues Pills’ new album, entitled ‘Lady In Gold’, sees the quartet truly spreading their wings across the album’s bewitching 10 tracks. Incorporating delicate keyboards and lush backing vocals within their soulful blues attack has resulted in an incredible leap in songwriting and style. Tracks like the driving opening title track, emotional ballad ‘I Felt A Change’ and the rousing cover of Tony Joe White’s ‘Elements And things’ (already a live favourite) imbue the album with a timeless feel.

    The album title? “Lady Gold is a character who symbolizes death. We wanted a twist on the typical stereotype of death being the grim reaper. So instead we made her a lady in gold,” explains Elin.

    Like its self-titled predecessor, ‘Lady In Gold’ was produced by Don Alsterberg (Graveyard, Division Of Laura Lee, José González, Jerry Williams).

    Blues Pills Live

      Easily one of the breakthrough classic rock bands of 2014, Blues Pills have been enchanting fans and media alike since they unleashed their self-titled, UK Top 75 debut last year. This young American / Swedish / French quartet create a very unique, intense and extraordinary rock atmosphere while at the same time having a major mainstream appeal that takes you right back to the time of Blues Pills’ ancestors Aretha Franklin, early Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Cream.

      Driving basslines, grooving drums and guitar solos from another planet by 17 year old Dorian Sorriaux, harmonized and tied together with such easiness and delight by Elin Larsson‘s incredible voice.

      With the idea to combine soul music with blues and rock ‘n’ roll and turn it into a new force of unimaginable energy, intensity and freshness, blonde archangel and soulsaviour Elin Larsson will guide you gently into a new world; the band´s empire of soulful rock. Elin’s powerful lyrics are full of emotion, her jazzy-soulful voice unfolding in outstanding beauty with a refreshing new take on the timeless and unquestionably noble art of rock ‘n’ roll.

      The band‘s stunning 10-track debut, produced by Don Alsterberg (Graveyard), was dubbed “one of the most exciting releases of the year” by Classic Rock Magazine, while Mojo predicted that “good times lie ahead for Blues Pills.” The album was rapidly backed by serious bout of roadwork. A sold-out November club run was followed a month later with a full UK tour as special guests to Rival Sons. Such is the demand for the band that another April headline run was announced immediately after.

      It couldn’t be more fitting that the band’s first live album was recorded at the renowned German Freak Valley Festival. Festival founder Jens Heide has not only been supporting the young musicians from “day one, before we even played a single show, before ‘Devil Man’ even was written and before the band was fully formed,” as vocalist Elin Larsson points out. In fact, he even gave the band their name.

      This concert was also their first ever headline festival appearance. “We took a walk around the festival and I remember getting a really good vibe from the place,” recalls guitarist Dorian Sorriaux. “It felt like all the puzzle pieces came together up at that moment,” adds Larsson.

      It’s in the live arena where Blues Pills really come into their own, as this 10-track release, recorded in front of a rabid German crowd, surely testifies. Improvising, stretching and twisting arrangements with Sorriaux and Larsson swapping the spotlight, Blues Pills remain anchored by their rock-solid rhythm section. ‘Blues Pills Live’ is the sound of a young band at the top of their game.

      Blues Pills

        Elin Larsson, Cory Berry and Zack Anderson - all in their early twenties - formed a group which should quickly become one of the most acclaimed and interesting bands around. Behold the birth of a new musical experience, an experience we thought was long gone, lost in time and space. Behold the birth of Blues Pills.

        The young American-Swedish-French quartet create a very unique, intense and extraordinary rock atmosphere while at the same time having a major mainstream appeal that takes you right back to the time of Blues Pills’ ancestors Aretha Franklin, early Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Cream. Driving basslines, grooving drums and guitar solos from another planet by the only 17 year old Dorian Sorriaux, harmonized and tied together with such easiness, such delight, by Elin’s incredible voice, sometimes singing in her mother tongue Swedish.

        With the idea to take soul music, combined with blues and rock ‘n’ roll and turn it into a new force of unimaginable energy, intensity and freshness, their blonde archangel and soul saviour Elin Larsson will guide you gently into a new world - the band’s empire of soulful rock. Elin’s powerful lyrics are full of emotions, her jazzy-soulful voice unfolding with outstanding beauty.

        All this is realised on the band’s stunning 10 track debut, produced by Don Alsterberg (Graveyard) and packaged in the incredible 60s style artwork of Marijke Koger-Dunham.

        Agnostic Front

        Another Voice

        New York hardcore legends Agnostic Front have outlived contemporaries such as Minor Threat, SS Decontrol, Black Flag and are, on this evidence, still capable of producing a very mean noise. It's all here; the trademark sledgehammer rhythms, chainsaw guitar hooks and street anthem choruses. Produced by Hatebreed's Jamey Jasta, and featuring Terror's Scott Vogel and Karl Bleuchner of Earth Crisis.
