The follow-up to 2015’s ‘Farm Machine’, also issued via Spinefarm, this latest outing sees these Finnish sons of the soil delving into the world of original material for the first time, although the majority of the tracks continue to be covers of rock & metal classics… indeed, the lead single / video has now been confirmed as a ‘hillbillified’ version of Iron Maiden’s ‘Aces High’; this is slated for digital release on July 21st, with the video following on August 3rd.
Not only are these skilled musicians a genuine YouTube sensation, notching up tens of millions of views, they have also taken their ‘badass bluegrass’ all over the world, showing that their signature re-workings can be extremely effective, both live and on record. Last year, there was an official ‘Steve ‘n’ Seagulls Day’ in Colorado, USA, and the band will be returning Stateside for a comprehensive run of headline dates this autumn.
In terms of the UK, the following headline shows have been lined up in support of ‘Brothers In Farms’:-
14-Nov Brighton, Haunt
15-Nov London, Bush Hall
16-Nov Cardiff, Globe
17-Nov Glasgow, Cathouse
18-Nov Manchester, Deaf Institute
Never Mind The Bullocks. Let the bluegrass metal mayhem continue!
