Multicultural blues rockers BLUES PILLS have announced details for the band's forthcoming self-titled debut album. Produced by renowned Don Alsterberg (GRAVEYARD), Blues Pills is set to be released July 25th via Nuclear Blast. The cover art was created by legendary artist Marijke Koger-Dunham. 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!“
Tracklisting: "High Class Woman" "Ain't No Change" "Jupiter" "Black Smoke" "River" "No Hope Left For Me" "Devil Man" "Astral Plane" "Gypsy" (Chubby Checker cover) "Little Sun" The ten tracks of Blues Pills include 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.“ -
