Bombed Out and artist news
Posted: 8th May 2012
The third album from Adam Jones and the lads will be released on Bombed Out Records this summer.
Things have been incredibly hectic in the Peachfuzz camp over the last few months. To start with, drummer Jon Roche left the band and bassist Lewis Kreft has taken more of a back seat role, leaving Adam to draft in a few musicians to fill out the band's live line-up, namely Iolo Edger, Nigel Cooke and Vaughan Jordan.
None of which stopped the band writing and recording a new record in the form of We Are Solid State, a 10 track monster of an album that pushes the band's sound onwards and upwards. If you thought Everything Takes Forever covered everything this band is about then you might get a bit of a shock on first listen. We Are Solid State maintains the band's penchant for a solid pop song and the backing vocals are still present and correct but there's no doubt that the rock has been turned up to 11!
We'll have more news on the album (and hopefully some gigs) shortly but in the meantime the band have uploaded the first song from the album, "Down To Me" and matched it up with a great little acoustic cover of "Astro City 0.5" (originally by fellow countrymen and BO favourites, Bedford Falls). You can stream and download this for free on the Peachfuzz bandcamp page.
