This is a strange signing. But maybe not so strange when you think about the success of bands like Purson and Orchid.
Nuclear Blast Records has announced the signing of up-and-coming blues rock outfit Blues Pills.
“Mashing the sounds of legendary rock and soul pioneers such as Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, the original Fleetwood Mac and Led Zeppelin while incorporating their own, distinctive marks, Blues Pills put back excitement into rock music,” says a press release.
A new EP is in the early stages of completion.
Commented the band: “It is with bliss that we announce signing with Nuclear Blast Records. It’s a dream come true in the literal sense of the words.
“Since we started the band we have always casually made jokes about one day getting signed to Nuclear Blast, though truthfully we never thought it would happen. So be careful what you wish for, people, it might just come true!”
The band can be seen on tour with Orchid and Scorpion Child.
