Published Mar 22, 2016Windsor, ON, blues-rock unit the Blue Stones are set to unleash their latest LP Black Holes next month, but before it officially rolls out, Exclaim! is giving you an exclusive first listen to the title track.
The new record was made with Canadian indie music mainstay Ian Blurton — who, according to drummer and one half of the band Justin Tessier, "brought a level of grit and rawness that we really wanted to tap into for a record that's far darker than what we've released in the past."
That freshly tapped darkness oozes out across "Black Holes (Solid Ground)," manifesting itself in a sparse, melancholic opening guitar line before chunkier, fuzzed-out riffs and pummeling drum beats take over. Verses build up to an explosive, distorted chorus that is sure to shake up your speakers.
Black Holes is due out on April 15, but you can listen to the song from which the album takes its name right now in the player below.
