Following the release of the singles AGAIN, PRAISE and WORN DOWN, and the announcement of their debut album FRAGILE SKELETON, Hull trio BLOODHOUND now reveal AM I OKAY? the fourth in the series of singles leading up to the album release, available on 17 January on all platforms.
Listen to AM I OKAY? here: https://soundcloud.com/bloodhoundhull/am-i-okay-single
Speaking about the track, the band explained: “This is the newest song on the album, and was actually born during the first recording session for Fragile Skeleton. It covers possibly the most important topic in this day and age, mental health. It’s a reflection of the struggles of it underneath the surface and the way we, as individuals, hide it on the surface”.
BLOODHOUND recently announced details of their album launch night at HULL POLAR BEAR on SATURDAY 1 FEBRUARY 2020. This will be their biggest headline show to date and will be celebrated with a psychotically twisted line-up that includes their closest friends FAUX PAS and BROODERS alongside further Special Guests.

The debut BLOODHOUND album, FRAGILE SKELETON, will be released on 31 January 2020. Taking early influence from the likes of Queens of The Stone Age, Drenge, Royal Blood and Alice In Chains, the band have previously released a number of well-received singles and the acclaimed Everyone Out EP; and earned a reputation for their blistering live performances awash with monstrous riffs, mammoth choruses and psychedelic noise.
Speaking about FRAGILE SKELETON, the band said: “The album is a journey through all of the material we have chopped and changed over the last three years. It’s more a story of personal experience and how a person can appear strong on the outside but, inside, they are fragile and afraid. It covers a lot of emotional experiences and delves into the delicate problems that so many people hide”.
The previously revealed tracks leading up to the album release are perfect illustrations of the band’s musical and vocal fury driven by seductive and enduring melodies. There are many sides to BLOODHOUND, though, and there are twists, turns and detours to discover throughout the album.
FRAGILE SKELETON features contributions from Ru Cowl, the indomitable, driven vocalist with Faux Pas; Fiona Lee, the captivating singer songwriter whose work is grabbing attention far beyond her Yorkshire base; and Leeds psyche-grunge trio Brooders, whose singer and guitarist Adam Bairstow recorded and co-produced the album with BLOODHOUND themselves.
