TRACK TO APPEAR ON SEASON FINALE OF ANIMAL KINGDOM TO AIR ON AUGUST 21
ALL NEW LP BLACK HOLES DUE OUT OCTOBER 26
PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE NOW
Alt-Rock duo The Blue Stones have released another track today titled “Be My Fire” off their upcoming LP, Black Holes. The track is the third song being made available, the two previous being “Black Holes (Solid Ground)” and “Rolling With the Punches.”
“Be My Fire” will also be featured in the season finale of TNT’s Animal Kingdom this Tuesday, August 21, 2018.
The Blue Stones will head out on the road this summer with little signs of slowing down. On August 17, the duo will perform an intimate set at The Sound Lounge in Chicago, IL. The following day, they’ll perform on Gallagher Way outside of Wrigley Field before Pearl Jam’s performance there. They’ll end the month by appearing before appearing at the InCuya Festival in Cleveland, OH on August 26.
The Blue Stones will release Black Holes on October 26, 2018. Fans who pre-order the LP on iTunes will get the first three tracks, “Be My Fire,” “Black Holes (Solid Ground)” and “Rolling With The Punches” as iTunes instant grat tracks. All three tracks are also available on all streaming platforms.
Fans may recognize the two instant grat tracks. “Rolling With The Punches” has received several placements in the USA Network’s hit show Suits, Showtime’s comedy series Shameless and ESPN’s Monday Night Football. “Black Holes (Solid Ground)” which is the official lead single has amassed over 8 Million Worldwide Streams, an impressive feat by an unsigned band.
The Blue Stones have been hard at work this year playing live at some of the country’s top concert destinations. The band was front and center at this year’s Carolina Rebellion festival with MUSE and Queens of the Stone Age. The Blue Stones then went onto giving highlighted performances at Northern Invasion, Winnetka Music Festival, and the highly coveted Bonnaroo Festival.
Listening to the larger-than-life, but tight and precise blues-rock of The Blue Stones on their eOne debut, Black Holes, it is astonishing to discover all that sound and fury is created by just two people. Guitarist/vocalist/lyricist Tarek Jafar and percussionist/backing vocalist Justin Tessier have known each other since meeting as kids but it wasn’t until attending university together that they decided to combine their talents into a musical project.
“The album’s about being a young adult and entering the real world from a sheltered environment, like college,” explains Jafar. “Feeling torn between taking the secure path or doing something that might be riskier, but you’re passionate about… following what you love as opposed to sticking to the straight and narrow.”
“We play blues-rock, though it’s not loose and dirty,” explains Tessier. “It’s lean, raw, tight, without a wasted note.”
With the release of Black Holes, The Blue Stones are ready to raise the stakes and turn up the heat.
