BLUES PILLS - LIVE AT ROCKPLAST

NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS

FEBRUARY 14 2014

A band to watch this year...

 

 

Seeing Blues Pills live for the first time this year and listening to their first 'Devil Man' EP seems to suggest that they will be a band to watch in 2014, and another shrewd Nuclear Blast signing. This EP 'Live at Rockplat' collects 5 songs you won't have heard on the previous EP, but will probably be familiar with if you caught them live this year.

 

Releasing a live EP after indicating a full-length was on the wat may just be a stop gap, or a further test of the market, but musically this is just as strong as anything on the first outing, even if there is nothing quite to match the majesty of 'Devil Man'. The band almost gets there though with live favoutites 'Little Sun' the pick of the bunch here.

 

If you like a modern take on the Blues with strong songs and a breathtaking female vocal to boot Blues Pills are just a little bit special. Actually make that essential...
