LADYHAWK Announce New Album, Offer Sneak Peak

For those of you who enjoy your rock’n’roll soaked in alcohol, we have good news. Come March 4th, 2008 (UK release April 7th), LADYHAWK will release a new full length titled “Shots”.

With a full length and 12″ under their belt, Ladyhawk took up residence in an abandoned farm house behind the shopping mall in the band’s childhood hometown of Kelowna, British Columbia, armed only with recording gear, sangria and a piss pot. Two weeks later “Shots” was born. It is an album filled with the cold creaking and ghostly echoes of the old house in the dead of winter. Like a party for the last house standing in a sea of strip malls and condos, surely near the end of its time. “Shots” is the sound of Ladyhawk getting loose, turning up loud, downing a few more and howling at the moon. It evokes the devilish sounds of Goats Head Soup guitars, the honey-slides and howling of Neil Young in his darkest hours, and the phantoms that haunted Roky Erickson at the Holiday Inn.

Experts at bottling the misty mountain ghostly blues offered on their self titled debut, it should be clear, this is not classic rock; this is not southern rock. “Shots” is a step forward toward someplace your compass doesn’t point.

A sneak peak of the album is being offered by our friends at Fader Magazine. You can hear the track “I Don’t Always Know What You’re Saying” here
