SAD BLOOD SHARE NEW VIDEO FOR HEAVY PETTING ZOO.
UK TOUR UNDERWAY
After failed attempts at careers in both professional wrestling and standup comedy (due to a lack of any discernible athletic or comedic ability) George Phillips turned his hand to songwriting. He picked up a guitar and started writing songs about his failures in life and love focusing mostly his failed imaginary relationship with pop sensation Taylor Swift, but he needed a band. After attempting to recruit drummer Daniel Goldberg and bassist Krys Bascombe approximately 22 and half times, they finally relented and Sad Blood was born. With a raft of emo, power-pop twinged songs they entered the studio in 2015 to record their debut EP. They called it Ultimate Worrier. After a lengthy fictional court battle with Ms. Swift over their ill advised Bad Blood based band name, the band returned to the studio to record their sophomore effort and christened it Legion of Gloom, learning nothing from their previous problems with pun-based nomenclature.
Sad Blood are one of the better examples of the ’emo revival’, drawing influence from Into It. Over It., Sunny Day Real Estate, Mineral and Algernon Cadwallader. Although Legion Of Gloom clocks in at under 15 minutes long it doesn’t fall short of leaving you comfortably satisfied. With its real laid back attitude drenched in a thick layer of puns and innuendo. Legion of Gloom is your perfect bummed out record to sit in the sun and hang out to.
