“… This is loud, it’s doomy, it’s grunge-y, it’s riffy; it blasts its way into your ears with scant regard for their safety …” LOCAL SOUND FOCUS
“… They were great, they are great, and I don’t think it would be controversial to say they’ll be even greater in the future …” THE GRYPHON
“… Their fuzzy DIY sound is laced with a sense of doom and foreboding not dissimilar to the likes of Drenge and Demob Happy …” SOUND OF PEN
“… Dinosaur Pile-Up meets Nirvana via Vulgarians-style awesomeness; so, yeah, that’s really good …” SOUNDSPHERE
“… A sludge of bone-grinding guitar riffs and tortured vocals …” BACKSEAT MAFIA
Atmospheric Hull grunge trio BLOODHOUND have announced that their debut FRAGILE SKELETON album will be released on 31 January 2020. Taking influence from the likes of Queens of The Stone Age, Drenge, Royal Blood and Alice In Chains, the band have released a number of well-received singles and the acclaimed Everyone Out EP; earned a reputation for their blistering live performances awash with monstrous riffs, mammoth choruses and psychedelic noise; and are now ready to unleash their first full-length release.
You can listen to the three tracks already announced from the album here:
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 announced tracks, AGAIN, PRAISE and WORN DOWN, are the first three of four singles leading up to the album release and 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.
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. To mark the occasion of the release of their debut album, the night will also be sprinkled with surprise Special Guests.
