Brighton‘s blustery rock tandem BLOOD RED SHOES is back! Although it looked like the
duo would never return as the pair broke up after the release of their excellent self-titled 2014 album. Guitarist Laura-Mary Carter and drummer Steven Ansell broke the silence with some great news yesterday. New, fifth album GET TRAGIC will hit the streets early 2019 – on 25th January via Jazz Life Records. The band will also play some small club
gigs to present the new record (see dates below).
Ansell revealed the story behind the new LP’s title: “The reason we called it ‘Get Tragic’ is because we realised that everything we’ve been doing over the last three years is kinda tragic! Just like, ‘Ooh, I hate you, I’m going to America to find myself’, and like ‘Ooh, I’m gonna party for the rest of the year!’ Everything about it is such a cliché, we were like, ‘We’ve turned into a fuckin’ tragedy!’”
Ahead of all this here’s brand new single MEXICAN DRESS. A groovy stomper that sticks directly. Its booming beat, Carter‘s sensual vox and Ansell biting his tongue somewhere in the middle all turn this comeback cracker into a galvanizing glam and glitter ripper. Capture the fervid vibe right here…
