BLUES PILLS announce new album "Holy Moly!" for June 19th, 2020
release first single 'Proud Woman'
Often compared to a jam session between Aretha Franklin and LED ZEPPELIN, BLUES PILLS' career took them from an American garage to international glory within a few years. Their self titled debut album (2014) entered the German album charts at #4 and two years later they went straight to #1 with the successor "Lady in Gold". Starting in the smallest clubs the band suddenly found themselves playing on some of the world’s biggest stages from Rock Am Ring, Download, Sweden Rock and even the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival where DEEP PURPLE famously saw smoke on the water during Frank Zappa’s performance.
With the band’s 3rd album, ‘Holy Moly!’, to be released on June 19th, 2020, BLUES PILLS plan their return to a number of major festival stages, playing Download, Hurricane and Southside among many others throughout the summer.
But fans need not wait until summer for their first taste of the action. To support International Women’s Day on March 8th BLUES PILLS have released their first single 'Proud Woman'. The band describe their intentions with the song:
"With 'Proud Woman' we wanna give the fierce women and grrrls of the world a power anthem to turn on whenever they wanna feel empowered. Or just have fun. A song to everyone who stands behind the most obvious things of all. Equality and unity. Whoever you are, wherever you come from. Women will always be a driving force of change. And a change is gonna come."

In regards to the lyrics of 'Proud Woman' vocalist, Elin Larsson, says: "I’m a proud woman came out from my inner self and the first thing I thought was: someone must have written this before. And if not, why? Hey! It’s about damn time then!
To be a woman or non-binary in the music industry seems to be more about the gender then the music sometimes. As a woman you’re being belittled, threatened, scrutinized, made fun of, targeted and harassed in a way that the men in the industry isn’t. And even so there is so many women in the industry who made and are making their mark just as mighty as the men, and they do that despite all of the hardships they get for simply being a woman and that makes their triumphs even greater."
-"I’m a proud woman
And I’m not the only one!"

Unfortunately, the upcoming BLUES PILLS album, „Holy Moly!“, will not be released as planned on June 19th, 2020. Together, the band, its management and label have decided to postpone the album indefinitely.
The band states: "It’s with a heavy heart that we must tell you that our new album "Holy Moly!" must be postponed. Due to the situation with Covid-19 it’s impossible for us to go on with this album release according to plan. Festival after festival is getting canceled, borders are closed and we feel we cannot go on with this release to make it the best. We put so much into this, over a year of hard work in our own studio and we miss you fans out there SO much. This situation breaks our hearts, we were excited to share this with you. The album, the festivals, the upcoming tours."
BLUES PILLS continue: "We hope to have more information during the next week. But the album will be released, we’re just pushing the release date and we’re still thinking if we should go on releasing singles but over a longer time. Or take a break and continue the release when we decided when the album will be released. We want to share this with you so bad, and we will. But now the most important is to take care of each other. Stay strong, stay healthy. Support bands and artists you like, keep the rock rolling.
WE LOVE YOU."

In Anbetracht der Entstehungsgeschichte ein absolut bemerkenswertes Album bei dem sich mMn die Bandmitglieder in Ihrer Personalnot gegenseitig selbst übertrumpfen.
Andersons aufgezwungene Qualitäten als Lead Guitarist und Kwarnströms powerdrumming (Kiss My Past Goodbye omg) ebnen nach wie vor den Weg für Larsson's Vocals. Anders aber nicht minder großartig.
