The wait is over and Blues Pills will finally return to stages all over Europe. The tour will include some of the biggest festivals from Donington’s legendary Download, to the massive Hellfest and the alternative rock twins Southside / Hurricane in Germany, as well as selected club, shows to present their latest third album Holy Moly! alongside other fan favourites.
The band comments: “It is two years ago when we started our new album campaign with the release of the Proud Woman single and the pandemic stopped all live activities. We can’t wait to finally present the Holy Moly! songs live and celebrate the power of music with you. Music is an universal language of love and peace – something that is well needed. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Peace!”
Infamous for their charismatic performances, the rock quartet Blues Pills had a fast journey of international success. They went straight from dirty, crowded bars to playing at some of Europe’s biggest festivals such as Download, Rock am Ring, Wacken Open Air and Roskilde. Their self-titled debut album went straight into the European charts and hit #4 in Germany and their second album Lady in Gold landed a #1 in Germany. Blues Pills is a heavy dose of pure rock power, and with hundreds of thousands of sold records and one of today’s strongest rock vocalists, this band is here to stay.
Under the layers of heavy psychedelic blues rock and Elin Larsson’s soulful and powerful voice, often compared to Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse and Adele, the core of Blues Pills has always been the restless search for change. Change in the human mind and the musical influences they embraced themselves with, from blackened soul to the trippy rides through 60’s rock music and the devils’ blues.
In 2020 Blues Pills released their critical acclaimed self-produced and recorded album Holy Moly! mixed by Grammy Award-winning Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iggy Pop, Adele, Black Sabbath, Rival Sons, Hozier et al).
