Blues Pills have been on Overdrive’s radar since the release of the 10″ Devil Man in October of 2013, and as soon as we heard it, we were hooked! The bands debut album was released during the Summer via Nuclear Blast and is a solid rock album that is packed with atmospheric, blues driven hard rock melodies.
The band are currently about to embark on a UK tour which starts next week, however if you are lucky enough to get a ticket to witness them live in Dublin’s Voodoo Lounge on April 25th, then count yourself a very lucky punter! Tickets go on sale on Friday December 12th at 9am and are priced at €18 and available from Ticketmaster, Sound Cellar or check out DME Promotions for more details.
Ahead of their UK Tour starting next week psychedelic Swedish rockers BLUES PILLS have unveiled a glimpse of their studio recording process in the new video for “No Hope Left For Me” – a song off their self-titled debut album which was released via Nuclear Blast this Summer. Check out the video below as well as the full length release.
The video was shot by renowned director Patric Ullaeus and the full cut can be seen below:
Blues Pills was produced by Don Alsterberg (GRAVEYARD, SOUNDTRACK OF OUR LIVES, THE INTERNATIONAL NOISE CONSPIRACY) and features artwork by world renowned Dutch artist Marijke Koger-Dunham (THE BEATLES, GEORGE HARRISON, ERIC CLAPTON).
