The enchanting multicultural blues rockers, Blues Pills have just announced details for the band's forthcoming self-titled debut album.
Produced by the renowned and respected Don Alsterberg (Graveyard), 'Blues Pills' is set for release on July 28th, 2014 via Nuclear Blast. The cover art was created by legendary artist Marijke Koger-Dunham.
The band were ecstatic to find the piece, they comment; "The artwork is by the incredible artist Marijke Koger-Dunham. She painted it sometime in the late 60's, and because we were looking for some 60's inspired artwork, we thought "what could be better?" For us, it is a representation of the balance of life, as shown in all the symbolism of natural dualities such as darkness and light, sun and moon, life and death, etc. It shows how opposite forces are interconnected and complement each other to form a whole. Besides that, it just looks absolutely amazing!"
