Louisville-based eclectic rock act Tantric have just signed a deal with Pavement Entertainment and will release their eagerly awaited fifth studio album entitled ’37 Channels’ in September 17, 2013. It’s the band’s first work since their 2009 release, ‘Mind Control’.
“37 Channels” maintains Tantric’s tradition of exploring new directions by integrating diverse influences such as old school country, southern and classic rock and Motown with the trademark Tantric sound. Frontman Hugo Ferreira’s unique soulful baritone vocals, ranging from angsty rasps to melodious melancholy are once again present, along with the usual intricate guitar work and infectious riffs layered over complex textures.
Featured guests on the album include Shooter Jennings and members of Hinder, 3 Doors Down, Saving Abel and Uncle Kracker. The album title comes from what Ferreira describes as”What goes on in my brain constantly; 37 things or channels if you will, all at once vying for my attention”. Typically diverse, the track selection offers unexpected content that will surely impress, as well as something for loyal fans. This album also marks a change in Tantric’s structure, establishing it as Ferreira’s ongoing musical project and allowing more freedom for collaborations without deviating from the established Tantric sound.
Also featured on ’37 Channels’ is Leif Garrett who recorded guest vocals on the track “My Turn” in which Hugo commented, “It’s an absolute honor to have such a iconic artist such as Leif Garrett on my record. I know that his voice is cooler now than ever in my opinion. Not much more to say. I’m just honored to have him on it. Rad as [expletive,]” the band’s front man Hugo Ferreira is quoted as saying on Garrett’s website.
Check out “Mosquita,” the first single off Tantric’s new album, 37 Channels, out September 17. “Mosquita,” features Shooter Jennings and David “2B” Mouser (KNOXX, The Villebillies) on guest vocals. The track also features guitarists Kenny Olson (Kid Rock) and Kevin McCreery (Uncle Kracker), drummer Greg Upchurch (Puddle of Mudd, 3 Doors Down) and renowned pedal steel guitarist Gary Morse.
