Multicultural blues rock outfit BLUES PILLS has released the official lyric video for “Devil Man“, the title track of the band’s upcoming EP, to be released on October 18 via Nuclear Blast Records. The stunning psychedelic video was created by talented artist Tommy Antonini (guitarist for Italian post-hardcore band Tasters), who has previously worked with such groups as Black Star Riders, Soulfly, Revamp and can be streamed below.
“Devil Man” will be available as digisleeve CD, 10-inch vinyl (available in different and exclusive colors) and digital download.
“Devil Man” track listing:
01. Devil Man
03. Time Is Now
04. Dig In
Commented the band: “‘Devil Man‘ was one of the first songs we wrote, but it’s still one of our favorites to play. It’s just a simple riff, with a good melody, played with lots of energy. The message is simple, and it’s about anyone who you consider to be your enemy!
“‘The River‘ is the softest and saddest song we have. The lyrics are basically about searching for answers to life’s questions.
“‘Time Is Now‘ is all about living in the present, and enjoying the moment. Live today!
“‘Dig In‘ — we tried to play with the dynamics of the song quite a bit. It showcases our delicate side as well as our heavy side. The lyrics are about living according to your own beliefs as opposed to what you are told to believe, and not blindly buying into something.”
On October 18, BLUES PILLS will play a special show for WDR Rockpalast at Crossroads Festival in Harmonie/Bonn, Germany, to be followed by a tour in November with ORCHID and SCORPION CHILD.
Mashing the sounds of legendary rock and soul pioneers such as Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, the original Fleetwood Mac and Led Zeppelin while incorporating their own, distinctive marks, BLUES PILLS put back excitement into rock music. The band consists of Swedish singer Elin Larsson, whose unique voice captures the listeners’ ears with as much soul, blues and rock as if she’d invented the whole thing, 18-year-old French guitarist Dorian Sorriaux, who brings a whole new set of power and freshness to the table and U.S. American stepbrothers Zack Anderson (bass) and Cory Berry (drums) as the driving rhythmic force behind the overall experience called BLUES PILLS.
