NEW BLOOD IN STORES AUGUST 31, 2010 VIA SPV/STEAMHAMMER
Horror-punk rockers THE OTHER are set to inject their “New Blood” into North America’s veins on August 31, 2010. “New Blood” is the THE OTHER’S fourth studio album, but the first to see a proper release in North America and the first to be released on SPV/Steamhammer. National retail chain FYE will be the only place to pick up the exclusive limited edition of “New Blood”. This exclusive digipak edition includes a bonus CD featuring two unreleased tracks from the “New Blood” recording sessions, a cover of Johnny Cash’s “Like the 309”, a cover of The Damned’s “Love Song” and a demo version of their song “Blood Runs Cold” This version is limited to 1000 copies and can only be found at your local FYE.
THE OTHER have played at some of the biggest alternative festivals in Europe including Mera Luna, Summer Breeze, Amphi, Endless Summer, Force Attack and Wave Gotik Treffen. They have played shows with Bela B. (of Germany’s punk rock superstars Die Ärzte), The 69 Eyes, The Cult and have toured with The Misfits, The Damned, Balzac and Wednesday 13. The band has played endlessly all over Europe in the last two years and has toured the USA, England and Ireland.
Two weeks ago, THE OTHER played the Wacken Open Air Festival in Wacken, Germany. Lead singer Rod Usher commented on their performance:
“As a Horror-punk band you don’t know what to expect when playing the world’s biggest Metal Festival Wacken. But instead of rocking in front of a few dozen kids, the WET Stage Area was packed with thousands of Metalheadz who gave THE OTHER an enthusiastic welcome. And not only that, the crowd was also chanting along to the songs and slam dancing and screaming for encores. Talk about a great surprise. Even the songs from our new album “New Blood” seemed to be known to everybody who was there.”
Being a horror-punk and horror-rock connoisseur Rod Usher was more than happy to provide Bloody-Disgusting.com with his list of the top ten horror songs of all time. See if you agree with his picks and post your favorites at the link below.
Last week, hard rock and heavy metal site Noisecreep.com teamed up with THE OTHER to premiere the track “Back to the Cemetery” from the new album. Check out the song at the link below:
