Husky Tones, ‘the Bonnie and Clyde of punk-blues’ are back with a new EP. This blistering Bristol-based duo hit with the force of a much bigger unit. A stand-up drummer who also delivers keening vocals, and a crunchy, dextrous, raging guitarist – the perfect girl/boy, punk-blues alchemy.
The upcoming six-song EP ‘I Don’t Give a Damn Anymore’ by Husky Tones continues their individual take on and exploration of the punk blues genre (begun in February 2017 with the album ‘Who Will I Turn To Now?’). Delivered by standing singer-drummer Victoria (Boo) Bourne and guitarist Chris Harper, Husky Tones’ musical, lyrical, and sonic influences include contemporary and classic punk blues acts such as The Bonnevilles, Miraculous Mule, The Gun Club, punk legends Patti Smith and Iggy Pop, the music of the North Mississippi Hill Country artists such as R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, and alternative rockers Morphine, The Black Keys, Nick Cave, and PJ Harvey.
Produced, engineered, mixed and mastered by Mat Sampson at Bink Bonk Studios, Bristol, the six songs of ‘I Don’t Give a Damn Anymore’ will be available as a digital download for £5 from July 1st. If you purchase from www.huskytones.com, you’ll be taken on a unique experience whereby you’ll receive an email a day for six days including a link to where you can download a new song, read the lyrics and watch a video of the Husky Tones talking about the making of the song. If you purchase during the pre-order period, you will also receive an EP of alternate takes and acoustic songs.
We’re so excited to announce that new HUSKY TONES six-song EP ‘I Don’t Give a Damn Anymore’ will be released on the 1st of July. We’re very excited to share with you these six new and original punk-blues songs.
‘I Don’t Give a Damn Anymore’ will be available to pre-order from June 17. It will be available as a digital download or a limited edition CD digipack. If ordered during the pre-order period you will also receive a digital download of an extra five-song EP of acoustic songs and alternate takes.
