BLUES PILLS: Announce Debut Album's Track List / Talk CHUBBY CHECKER Cover Song

BLUES PILLS: Announce Track Listing - 2014-05-09

2014-05-09 - Up and coming multicultural blues rockers BLUES PILLS have announced the track list 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,” commented the band. “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.“

Produced by renowned Don Alsterberg (GRAVEYARD), Blues Pills is set to be released July 25 (EU) and August 5 (North America) via Nuclear Blast.

Blues Pills Track list:
01. High Class Woman
02. Ain't No Change
03. Jupiter
04. Black Smoke
05. River
06. No Hope Left For Me
07. Devil Man
08. Astralplane
09. Gypsy (CHUBBY CHECKER cover)
10. Little Sun

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 60s, and because we were looking for some 60s 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 complement each other to form a whole. Besides that, it just looks absolutely amazing!”
