Earlier this year Blitz Kids hit Red Bull Studio London to record their debut album. While low on funds, the band were high on imagination and in homage to Black Sabbath, they decided to do it in only 48 hours…
Blitz Kids entered the Red Bull Studios London and tracked 'as live', mixed and mastered everything in just two days. With producer Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, Interpol, The Futureheads) at the helm, this ambitious project turned into a reality, as he poured all his years of experience into making a record to stand up against the band's peers, despite being against the clock.
The outcome? One of the most vibrant and exciting British records that 2011 is likely to see. With a guest spot from Aled Phillips fame on the lead track, Story and huge soon-to-be-classic tracks such as To The Lions and Hold Fast, these guys will be leading a mighty charge next year in the race to the top of the pile of British talent.
Vocalist, Joe James, explained the reason for recording the album this way: "We wanted to broaden people’s minds with what music can be about. That it doesn’t have to fall into a category, be that within a genre or the way it’s recorded – it’s no longer about simply following trends.
"Just because T-Pain auto-tuned his voice and sold a million records doesn’t mean you’re going to. In the current climate, people seem to be losing their way with what music’s about. Fundamentally, it’s about the songs."
