Hard blues rock veterans KAMCHATKA stream seventh album ‘Hoodoo Lightning’ in full; out Dec. 6th on Border Music
Swedish blues rock power trio KAMCHATKA are set to release their seventh studio album ‘Hoodoo Lightning’ this December 6th on Border Music, and embark on their European tour with Clutch and Graveyard. Fasten your seatbelts and rock’n’roll!
Guitarist and vocalist Thomas Juneor Andersson comments: « I think all of us were a little bit surprised about the interest from European promotors after our break and not having any new released material under our belts, but it also made us more confident in recording a new album. Some of the shows we played in ’18 were the best ones we’ve ever done in the 15 year history of the band so I was definitely looking forward to write new songs. »
Sonically it’s a grittier KAMCHATKA we hear this time, and it’s evident that there’s a new levelof energy shining through Hoodoo Lightning, a more confident take-no-prisoners attitude that is closer to the uncompromising live experience. Also introducing the shared lead vocals from Thomas & Per on many of the tracks give the power trio format an extra punch and a wider dynamic range.
‘Hoodoo Lightning’ was produced by KAMCHATKA & Jonas Kjellgren. It was recorded by Tobias Strandvik at Kamchatka Shelter, mixed and mastered by Jonas Kjellgren at Black Lounge Studios.
KAMCHATKA ‘Hoodoo Lightning’
Out December 6th via Border Music – PREORDER
and November 29th on streaming platforms
After an unforeseen break during 2017 due to various injuries and surgeries, KAMCHATKA came back last year to play live again. What was supposed to be a few low key gigs to get back together and write some new music quickly turned into 50 shows, headline tours, support slots and festival appearances.
One step back but two steps forward might be an appropriate way of describing Hoodoo Lightning, as all KAMCHATKA‘s signature ingredients we’ve come to know are there. The guitar wizardry and heartfelt vocals from Thomas Juneor Andersson as well as the rock solid swinging rhythm section of Tobias Strandvik & Per Wiberg are present and guide the listener through all the rock and roll twists and turns imaginable. Combined with the trio’s classy songwriting and vigorous performance, it is the sound of a band who knows what they want and what they’re good at! Hoodoo Lightning strikes!
