Band Of Spice released two lyric videos for “The Fading Spot” and the new album’s title track, “By the Corner of Tomorrow”. The release is scheduled for March 26th via Scarlet Records.
Does he really need any introduction? Since the brilliant Spiritual Beggars came on the hard’n’heavy scene in the mid-90’s, Spice’s voice and charisma have always been synonyms with fine songwriting, rock attitude and a bittersweet touch of melancholy. .
‘By the Corner of Tomorrow’, the band’s new album, is the first that he recorded in standard tuning, aiming for a more “resilient” sound. In the Swedish band leader’s own words: “I had Black Sabbath’s ‘Heaven and Hell’ and Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Blizzard of Ozz’ as references for the sound of this record – filtered through my personal touch”. His main goal was to make something in line with those timeless classics: a flowing collection of songs rich of variation, vibe and an unquestionable melodic feeling.
As usual, the lyrics deal with the human condition and our hidden dark feelings: fear, madness, hopelessness and the never-ending dream of escaping reality. Such a lovely trip with Band Of Spice, oh yes.
Band lineup: Spice – vocals & guitar, Alexander Sekulovski – bass, Bob Ruben – drums
