2014-09-01 11:30 - Up and coming multicultural blues rockers BLUES PILLS not only continue to stay in the German Media Control Charts (four weeks in the TOP25 so far) but also don't stop to sell out shows of their headlining tour in October. After Hamburg (October 15), Essen (October 14) & Frankfurt (October 19) are the next gigs announced to be upgraded to bigger venues. Furthermore the quartett has announced the opening band for 2,5 weeks run: THE ARKANES. Check entire tour routing below.

As a thank you to their rapidly growing fan base, the band has released their self-produced music video for the CHUBBY CHECKER cover 'Gypsy'. Check it out here:


Commented the band: "We made a home-made music video to the song 'Gypsy' from our debut album. We wanted to give something back to the fans as a "thank you" for all the amazing support! We shot it one night on tour, in our hotel room in Frankfurt. Hope you dig it!"

BLUES PILLS mark the first newcomer band signed to Nuclear Blast to crack the top ten in Germany!

Germany: #4
UK Indie Top 40: #6
Sweden Rock / Metal: #9
Switzerland: #10
Austria: # 19
Finland: #22
UK: #68
France: #77
Holland: #92
Belgium: #104

Commented the band: "Wow! You guys are unbelievably great! After making us go top 10 in Germany you also lead us in the charts of nine more countries! Thank you so much for your support, this is not real!
Earlier this week, when the German chat entry was revealed, the band responded: "BAAAM!! Toping the Chaaarts! We are so happy to say our album charted at #4 in Germany. We simply don't know what to say, words can't even express how we feel. Thank you for the love and support Germany! We love you back
Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger added: "I knew they were on to something really big when I first heard BLUES PILLS back in October 2012. It made me shiver, it was pure magic. The authenticity they've got, the power they transport and said magic they create can't be put in words. It's pretty much the most beautiful and timeless music - it touches you. We at Nuclear Blast are extremely proud that both the band's and our hard work has paid off! I want to say a huge THANK YOU to the entire team, all the supporters, the booking agencies and of course the band's management for making this one a real pleasant and exciting campaign . From here on to the stars - BLUES PILLS ARE HERE TO STAY!"

»Blues Pills« was produced by renowned Don Alsterberg (GRAVEYARD, SOUNDTRACK OF OUR LIVES, THE (INTERNATIONAL) NOISE CONSPIRACY) and was released Friday, July 25.
