BLUES PILLS – announce debut album's ... - 2014-05-09 04:00

2014-05-09 04:00 - Up and coming multicultural blues rockers BLUES PILLS have announced the tracklist for the bands forthcoming self-titled debut album. The ten tracks of »Blues Pills« will also feature a cover version of the CHUBBY CHECKER classic 'Gypsy'.

“It's a song everyone in the band liked and we used to play it on our soundcheck. Slowly it worked itself into our set list, and now it's going to be on our debut album as well. Back in the days lots of bands covered each other to honor the other artist, and they did it with their own touch on it. Some examples are, JIMI HENDRIX 'All Along the Watchtower', JANIS JOPLIN 'Tell Mama', 'Summertime' and 'Ball and Chain', or JOE COCKER 'With a Little Help From My Friends', everyone was doing it with the right reason. For us, we want to honor CHUBBY CHECKER and also bring it back to life by doing the cover version the BLUES PILLS way. Hopefully people like both versions and, yeah, it's just a killer tune.“ - BLUES PILLS

Produced by renowned Don Alsterberg (GRAVEYARD), »Blues Pills« is set to be released July 25, 2014 via Nuclear Blast.

»Blues Pills« can now be pre-ordered in various formats at this location: http://media.nuclearblast.de/shoplanding/2014/Blues-Pills/blues-pills.html

04. Black Smoke

The cover art was created by legendary artist Marijke Koger-Dunham – find the artful piece below/attached.



Commented the band: „The artwork is by the incredible artist Marijke Koger-Dunham. She painted it sometime in the late 60ies, and because we were looking for some 60ies inspired artwork, we thought “what could be better?” For us, it is a representation of the balance of life, as shown in all 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 compliment each other to form a whole. Besides that, it just looks absolutely amazing!“
