Blues pills will be releasing their third album Holy Moly! on June 19th.  As a result, they have released a video for the track “Low Road” to help get people primed for the album’s release.  This band has received a pretty good buzz over the last few years.  There is no mistaking their influences, as their sound centers on the late 60s and 70s rock.  As a result, the obvious comparison has been Jefferson Airplane.  But they shouldn’t be discarded as a one trick pony as they can also bring some heavier blues rock as well.

Here’s the video for “Low Road”:

Here’s some information we were sent about the single:

The band comment: “We wrote “Low Road” about being your own worst enemy. About running from your own demons only to realise that you can’t, because the problem is inside of yourself. ‘Low Road’ is maybe one of the heaviest songs we’ve ever written, filled with the brutalness of the human mind, that can be both vicious and lost. Everybody have probably found themselves fumbling in the dark at some point in life. And with “Low Road” there is no way out. We love playing this song live, because it’s just raw, balls to the wall rock power. Hopefully this can be a relief for a moment in this wicked world. 


With the video for “Low Road” we just wanted to express ourselves live and adding some humor to this raw tune putting ourselves in a twisted surreal TV-show. And in some way it’s an honor to some of our heros from the 60s-70s era of rock’n’roll it’s where we got the inspiration from. The Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, The Doors, MC5, The Rolling Stones to mention a few. The ones who did something to break down the barriers. Imagine, to be the ones taking the first steps opening up the world to heavier rock music. We love them for that.”

The album is recorded by Blues Pills guitarist Zack, although with some helping hands along the way from The Hives members Nicolaus Arson and Johan Gustafsson, as well as Martin Jacobsson from Rovljud Sound. Holy Moly! is self- produced by Blues Pills and mixed by the Grammy award winning Andrew Scheps (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, IGGY POP, ADELE, BLACK SABBATH, RIVAL SONS, HOZIER). The album illustration ”Beast” is by the artist Daria Hlazatova
