Nuclear Blast Records are thrilled to announce the signing of the up and coming blues rock outfit of the year BLUES PILLS.
Without any support from labels or booking agencies, rising stars BLUES PILLS have toured relentlessly, released highly sought-after underground EP ‘Bliss‘ and thus become the most talked about band in the scene. Mashing the sounds of legendary rock & soul pioneers such as Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, FLEETWOOD MAC or LED ZEPPELIN whilst incorporating their own, distinctive marks, BLUES PILLS have put the excitement back into rock music.
The band are equally excited at their new partnership: “It is with bliss that we announce signing with Nuclear Blast Records. It’s a dream come true in the literal sense of the words. Since we started the band we have always casually made jokes about one day getting signed to Nuclear Blast, though truthfully we never thought it would happen. So be careful what you wish for, people, it might just come true!”
The band consists of Swedish singer Elin Larsson whose unique voice carries as much soul, blues and rock as if she’d invented the whole thing herself. Just turned 18, French guitarist Dorian Sorriaux, brings a whole new set of power and freshness to the table and US step-brothers Zack Anderson (bass) and Cory Berry (drums) are the driving rhythmic force behind the overall experience.
BLUES PILLS will be playing in the UK with now label-mates ORCHID and SCORPION CHILD on November 3rd at Camden Dingwalls for a full Nuclear Blast showdown!
A new EP is in the early stages of making as this announcement is spread. Keep your eyes open for more information to come soon.
