BLUES PILLS
Announce debut album’s tracklisting, talk Chubby Checker song cover

Up and coming blues rockers and, a personal favourite of mine, Blues Pills have announced the tracklisting for the bands forthcoming self-titled debut album. The ten tracks on ‘Blues Pills’ will also feature a cover version of the Chubby Checker classic ‘Gypsy’ about which the band had this to say:

“It’s a song everyone in the band liked and we used to play it on our soundcheck. Slowly it worked itself into our set list, and now it’s going to be on our debut album as well. Back in the day 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.“

The album has been produced by renowned producer Don Alsterberg who has worked with the likes of label mates Graveyard, ‘Blues Pills’ is set to be released July 28th 2014 via Nuclear Blast and the tracklisting reads as follows:

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. Astral Plane
09. Gypsy (Chubby Checker cover)
10. Little Sun

The album comes with some fantastic artwork on the cover created by legendary artist Marijke Koger-Dunham as seen here:

The band commented on the cover:

“The artwork is by the incredible artist Marijke Koger-Dunham. She painted it sometime in the late 60’s, and because we were looking for some 60’s 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 compliment each other to form a whole. Besides that, it just looks absolutely amazing!”
