BloodRed Shoes have announced a UK tour, and single ‘An Animal’ in support of their forthcoming new album dropping on 3rd March which will be self-titled. This is a nod to the self-production that the two piece Brighton rockers have went for after decampment to Berlin for writing and recording. This single is driven by a piledriver riff, overdubbed with power chord crunching. This is guttural rock n roll, however there is a lovely drop out where the refrain “How does it feel to reveal, what you already know” introduces that killer guitar line once again. Look out for the B side which includes a cameo from Eoin (Drenge).
The viral in support of the track is the band’s commentary on the various pitches and sexist treatments received when deciding on a video theme. Consequently standard gender roles are swapped as vocalist, Laura May plays the mugger, drummer Steven plays the jilted bride, whilst a naked businessman runs full speed through an array of the capitals’ streets.
As a live act, Blood Red Shoes following is global. After a successful marketing campaign with QR codes hidden from Jakarta to NYC via Berlin, which when scanned would unlock their new material. The band arrive on our shores late April through to early May, hitting LDN’s Electric Ballroom on 30th April.
