Band of Rascals – Tempest

self-released VÖ: 13. Oktober 2018

Vintage Southern Blues with a modern twist – there’s somehow ZZ Top popping up, or Danko Jones and a couple of Stoner-Rock-Bands when listening to those Canadians. Band of Rascals created the perfect soundtrack for a long trip with their new EP “Tempest” . It fits nicely when being stuck in traffic … or if you wanna chill at a party, or if you wanna rock out.

The first track “Holler” alone might seriously get stuck in your ear&brain forever, so be warned of the video clip below… About 24 min of ear candy that makes sitting still impossible, I bet everyone has at least to tap along – even with those rather slo-mo / ballad-like (Altitude, Reaction) and the acoustic Country-inspired song “Fell Into The Love of You”.

Which means listen to it, enjoy, buy it (via band website) – and keep your eyes open for tour dates because the Canadians will be visiting Europe for the first time in the beginning of 2019 …

By the way, the EP was produced by Eric Ratz (Billy Talent, Arkells, Monster Truck) in Bryan Adams’ studio The Warehouse.

reckless and merciless dictator, so KNEEL! In other words, editor-in-chief, translator, website and ad admin, "Jane of all trades" - - - addicted to books (everything between Lord Of The Rings & quantum physics) and music, mainly Metal made in Finland. Furthermore, there's painting, drawing, movies, theater... so you can expect some variety on this website too. MA Master of Arts, English and American studies & Media communication = completed two full studies parallel within 5 years; very proud of my achievement - a bit later in life thanks to a scholarship - as a working class girl in a highlyconservative-romancatholic nation...
