Atlanta rock band O'Brother are back with the first new material since their 2013 Triple Crown Records LP, Disillusion. Their newest single, titled “Bloodlines,” is a dark and gloomy epic that shows excellent promise and evolution from the five-piece, raising anticipations for their next release. Little details for the band's third LP have been unveiled but O'Bro released a statement touching on the Disillusion follow-up with the stream of “Bloodlines,” both of which you can find below. The track is also available for free download.
“We meet again. It’s been a while since we’ve spoken but that will change. We promise. We have been busy in the studio the last few months working on our new full length that will be coming in early 2016. We are proud of what we’ve created and we just wanted to give everyone a taste before the year is over.
This song is 'Bloodlines' and it’s one of our new favorites. We hope you like it too. If you like it, please help spread the word and share it with a friend in real life.
'Bloodlines' started off as a skeleton with just Anton’s bass line. Three dissonant notes that we fuzzed up to carry the song, which before preproduction was just one repeating progression.
We had tracked everything for the record and had a little bit of time to spare in the studio. We’d heard Brad, our engineer, play this beautiful B3 organ from the 70s through a Leslie cab earlier that week. We’d never heard anything like it before. Tanner started playing the riff on it and Brad started setting up microphones. It was a battle trying to get the oscillator to work and have it fit in the song, but we didn’t give up.”
