Blues Pills Blues Pills Live Limited Gatefold Etched Vinyl LP

Easily one of the breakthrough classic rock bands of 2014, Blues Pills have been enchanting fans and media alike since they unleashed their self-titled, UK Top 75, debut last July.This young American-Swedish-French quartet create a very unique, intense and extraordinary rock atmosphere while at the same time having a major mainstream appeal that takes you right back to the time of BLUES PILLS' ancestors Aretha Franklin, The Original Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Cream. Driving bass lines, grooving drums and guitar solos from another planet by the only 17 year old Dorian Sorriaux, harmonized and tied together with such easiness, such delight, by Elin Larsson's incredible voice.
With the idea to take soul music, combined with blues and rock'n'roll and turn it into a new force of unimaginable energy, intensity and freshness, the blonde archangel & soul-saviour Elin Larsson will guide you gently into a new world, the band's empire of soulful rock. Elin's powerful lyrics are full of emotion, her jazzy-soulful voice unfolds an outstanding beauty with a refreshing new take on the timeless and unquestionably noble art of rocknroll. The band's stunning 10-track debut, produced by Don Alsterberg (GRAVEYARD), was dubbed "one of the most exciting releases of the year" by Classic Rock Magazine while Mojo predicted that "good times lie ahead for Blues Pills." The album was rapidly backed by serious bout of roadwork. A sold-out November club run was followed a month later with a full UK tour as "special guests" to Rival Sons. Such is the demand for the band that another April headline run was announced immediately after.

It couldn't be more fitting that the band's first live album was recorded at the renowned German Freak Valley Festival.Festival founder Jens Heide has not only been supporting the young musicians from "day one, before we even played a single show, before 'Devil Man' even was written and before the band was fully formed," as vocalist Elin Larsson points out.In fact he even gave the band its name! This was also their first ever headline festival appearance."We took a walk around the festival and I remember getting a really good vibe from the place," guitarist Dorian Sorriaux recalls. "It felt like all the puzzle pieces came together up at that moment," adds Larsson. And it's in the live arena where Blues Pills really come into their own, as this 10-track release, recorded in front of a rabid German crowd,surely testifies. Improvising, stretching and twisting arrangements,with Sorriaux and Larsson swapping the spotlight, Blues Pills remain anchored by their rock-solid rhythm section. 'Blues Pills Live' is the sound of a young band at the top of their game.
