Bombshell Rocks - "Scars and Tattoos" 7" - $4.99 PPR115
It's been over 10 years since BOMBSHELL ROCKS released anything with this, their classic line-up; and these two tracks prove it was well worth the wait.
Almost 20 years have gone by since they formed in 1995, but this Swedish streetpunk powerhouse seems to have the right motivation behind this reformation and resurgence.
The tunes pack the same punch, quality soundwriting and hooks that fans have come to expect, and the impressive packaging suits this new release perfectly. The hand drawn tattoo art by Taler Nicols (Let it Bleed Tattoo, SF) is printed on a semi-transparent vellum jacket, which creates a layered effect with the artwork printed on the normal paper innersleeve - yielding a seriously cool and definitely unique package.
The band admit that this release makes them feel like they are 15 year old kids again, and they're already planning shows and a new album in late 2014.
While their last full-length may have been titled "The Conclusion" (Sailors Grave, 1996), it certainly was not, and BOMBSHELL ROCKS will show that they have a lot more to offer up!
This release includes a digital download card.
