UK band Blakshine are about to release their new album Blakshine II on June 4th 2016
Blakshine return with a set of powerful groove rock tunes fashioned by the band's guitarist Andy Dawson with superb vocal performance from Rick Gilliat. The rhythm section of Dave Lindley and Tony B create the massive attack that kicks the band along.
If you like strong melody but hard rock and power groove then this is for you!
The band which features Rick Gilliat on vocals, Andy Dawson -guitar, Tony Butterworth –bass and Dave Lindley on drums are excited about the new album. ‘Every track is killer material and I think it surprise a few people’ said vocalist Rick.
The album is to be released on Mojoblackdog label on line and on CD. The band intend to shoot a promo video in the next few weeks to push the album to the industry and fans.
Blakshine make hard hitting riff rock with influences from Audioslave, Aerosmith and Royal Blood. The album contains 12 tracks and avoids some of the usual clichés dealing with issues such as politics, migration and domestic violence as well as some uplifting anthems such as 'World Get Ready'. A track called ‘Heroes' references the increasing number of dying rock stars in the last year.
The full track listing is:
WORLD GET READY
BETWEEN THE LINES
KING OF THE WORLD
BACK TO YOU
MONEY (Bonus Track)
The album was recorded at THE OLD LIBRARY STUDIOS, Mansfield by Joff Spittlehouse, Sarah Kerry and Andy Dawson and then mixed and mastered by Andy’s SAVAGE cohort MARK NELSON, fresh from mixing the latest Savage album 7.
The Band will debut the album at a special hometown gig at the Old Library Theatre on Saturday 4th June with special guests Blitz. Check local press for details.
