BLUES PILLS will release their new album Holy Moly! on August 21st via Nuclear Blast. Today, the band has revealed the official video for their new single ‘Kiss My Past Goodbye’. 

Blues Pills are back with a new album ‘Holy Moly!’ and it’s just what 2020 needs.

Guitarist Zack Anderson comments: “‘Kiss My Past Goodbye’ is a song full of raw power, funky riffs, and wild drumming. It’s a clear message about moving on, staying true to yourself and not dwelling on your past.

Check out the latest single/video  ‘Kiss My Past Goodbye‘ below:

BLUES PILLS founders and main songwriters Elin and Zack spent the majority of their waking moments arranging and refining the songs. Together with drummer André, they built up an album in nuances of light and dark.

The album is recorded by BLUES PILLS guitarist Zack, although with some helping hands along the way from THE HIVES members Nicolaus Arson and Johan Gustafsson, as well as Martin Jacobsson from Rovljud Sound. Holy Moly! is self- produced by BLUES PILLS and mixed by the Grammy award-winning Andrew Scheps (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, IGGY POP, ADELE, BLACK SABBATH, RIVAL SONS, HOZIER).

About “Holy Moly!” Andrew Scheps says: “Holy Moly! can be a deceptive album.

On first listen it seems like a great blues/rock album with classic songs and great vocals. On repeated listens though you start to appreciate the layers and nuance. Not often do you get a record that makes a great first impression but is still a grower!

The album illustration ‘Beast‘ is by the artist Daria Hlazatova. A haunting capture of the devil embraced by kindness and sorrow. Just like life, it’s in the darkest times you have to glow.

Pre-orders for the album are now live and includes a very limited box set vinyl pressing and can be accessed via this link.
