BLUES PILLS: DEBUT ALBUM ARTWORK REVEALED

BLUES PILLS: DEBUT ALBUM ARTWORK REVEALED - 2014-04-30 15:40

2014-04-30 15:40 - Up-and-coming multinational blues rockers BLUES PILLS have unveiled the artwork to their forthcoming self-titled debut album created by world renowned Dutch artist Marijke Koger-Dunham (THE BEATLES, GEORGE HARRISON, ERIC CLAPTON).

“She painted this sometime in the late ‘60s,” states the band, “and because we were looking for some ‘60s-inspired artwork, we thought, ‘What could be better?’ For us, it is a representation of the balance of life, as shown in the symbolism of natural dualities such as darkness and light, sun and moon, life and death, etc. It shows how opposite forces are interconnected and complement each other to form a whole. Besides that, it just looks absolutely amazing!”



Due out in North America on August 5th, Blues Pills was produced by Don Alsterberg (GRAVEYARD, SOUNDTRACK OF OUR LIVES, THE INTERNATIONAL NOISE CONSPIRACY) and is the band’s follow-up to last year’s 4-song Devil Man EP. Watch the lyric video to the title track here: http://youtu.be/g6p2R8jaUW0. Import versions of the EP can be ordered from the Nuclear Blast USA Webshop: http://smarturl.it/BluesPillsDevilMan

This spring & summer, the band will be performing throughout the open air festival circuit in Europe.

HEARD IT ON THE GRAPEVINE

• "Blues Pills is a cool band with a ripping youngster on guitar. I'll throw these folks my vote." - Scott Holiday, RIVAL SONS

• "Blues Pills sounds like a super group straight out of 1967 San Francisco - Big Brother and The Holding Company - thrown to the dirty floor to be mopped up by The Jimi Hendrix Experience Band. It's great to see a band doing the ‘60s thing with such reverence for authenticity." - Carter Kennedy, ORCHID

• "The explosive offspring from a cosmic ménage à trois between the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Shocking Blue, and early Fleetwood Mac. Poppin' some of these pills will free your mind and your ass will most likely follow." - Ludwig Dahlberg, FREE FALL/ THE (INTERNATIONAL) NOISE CONSPIRACY

• “The Blues Pills are one of the best female-fronted rock groups of the scene today, paying homage to the founders of 60's and early 70's psychedelic/hard rock music, while forging ahead into the future with their own unique sound.“ - Mike Varney, founder of SHRAPNEL RECORDS

FOR FANS OF

The Original Fleetwood Mac, Janis Joplin, Rival Sons, Graveyard
