One of the most unusual and charismatic rock acts of our time have announced the release of their latest studio album for January 2014. More precisely: the American quartet NASHVILLE PUSSY are set to present their new studio recording Up The Dosage on January 21, 2014 in North America, in Germany on January 17, 2014 and Europe on January 20, 2014.
Up the Dosage picks up seamlessly where their 2009 release From Hell To Texas left off. And what is more: their five-year hiatus seems to have done frontman Blaine Cartwright (vocals, guitar) and Ruyter Suys (guitars) good - all 13 new songs (plus two bonus tracks) sound like they were catapulted into to the public from a fountain of youth, rocking in typical Pussy style. Up the Dosage features the first recordings from new bassist Bonnie Buitrago who took over the bass player duties from Karen Cuda. Frontman Blaine Cartwright commented on the addition of Bonnie to the band:
"Bonnie originally tried out for NASHVILLE PUSSY 12 years ago. When we needed a replacement for Karen a couple of years ago, we were lucky that she was available. She's a Southern California native who is a great musician who has given our rock a more solid roll!"
Rick Beato, known for his production work with Shinedown, mixed the album. He also is responsible for writing the current #1 Song on the Billboard County Chart "Carolina" by the band Parmalee.
The first audio sample from Up the Dosage is available for streaming via SoundCloud. A snippet of the song "The South's Too Fat to Rise Again" can be heard HERE.
"The song is about how fucking fat everyone in the south has got. Me included! It's hard to preach about Southern Pride when you can't touch your toes," exclaims frontman Blaine Cartwright.
NASHVILLE PUSSY came together in 1996. Ever since, the band has been performing a strenuous annual gig marathon, touring with acts like Motorhead, Slayer, ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd, as well as playing festivals like Wacken Open Air. Classic albums such as Let Them Eat Pussy (1998), High As Hell (2000), Say Something Nasty (2002) or From Hell To Texas (2009) have caused an international stir, and their single release: Fried Chicken And Coffee" earned the band a Grammy Nomination in the late Nineties in the category ´Best Metal Performance`.
Up The Dosage will be released in North America on January 21, 2014Germany on January 17, 2014, and in Europe on January 20, 2014 as a limited digipak edition (incl. 2 bonus tracks + poster), double gatefold LP edition with colored vinyl, standard version and download.
