Blues Pills – Go top 5 in German Charts! Coming to UK this Autumn‏

August 7, 2014



Reach #4 in the German Charts!

It is with great pleasure to announce that the magical self-titled debut album by up and coming multicultural soulful blues rockers BLUES PILLS has entered the German Media Control Charts at position #4 marking the first newcomer band signed to Nuclear Blast to crack the top ten in Germany!

Furthermore they could reach position #2 on the charts of German biggest media store “Media Markt”. They were in the top 20 in the Austrian Chart and charted at #68 in the UK National Album Charts selling 1,561 – 20% of that vinyl. No easy feat considering they aren’t due to fully tour the UK until this Autumn.

Commented the band: “BAAAM!! Toping the Chaaarts! We are so happy to say our album charted at #4 in Germany. We simply don’t know what to say, words can’t even express how we feel. Thank you for the love and support Germany! We love you back <3″

Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger adds: “I knew they were on to something really big when I first heard BLUES PILLS back in October 2012. It made me shiver, it was pure magic. The authenticity they’ve got, the power they transport and said magic they create can’t be put in words. It’s pretty much the most beautiful and timeless music – it touches you. We at Nuclear Blast are extremely proud that both the band’s and our hard work has paid off! From here on to the stars – BLUES PILLS ARE HERE TO STAY!”

‘Blues Pills’ was produced by the renowned and respected Don Alsterberg (GRAVEYARD), and the cover art was created by artist Marijke Koger-Dunham. The piece was originally painted in the 60s and never used – so with a slight adaptation to contain the Blues PIlls logo, this kept with the bands authentic, but youthful take on the richness of sixties soul and psychedelia. You can buy the debut here

‘Blues Pills’ has taken the UK press by storm:
‘One of the most exciting album releases of the year so far. Just what the doctor ordered’ 8/10 Classic Rock
”Thank feck for Blues Pills who’ve emerged like a fresh pressed 45 brimming with authenticity and sun-bleached Woodstockian sound.’ 4K Kerrang!
‘What makes this such a big deal is that it sounds like Blues Pills, not a throwback to a classic regime.’ 8/10 Metal Hammer.
