Blues Pills have announced that they are to release a limited edition live album recorded at the Freak Valley Festival in Germany last year.
Blues Pills Live will be released on the 20th March via Nuclear Blast. The album will be available in various coloured vinyl editions and a CD digibook format. No digital editions are currently planned.
Say Blues Pills of the release: “To the lovely freaks, Freak Valley creators, our dear friend Jens Heide. For us this moment and this day was really special. It felt like all the puzzle pieces came together up until one moment, this experience at Freak Valley Festival.”
“This was our first ever appearance at Freak Valley and our first ever headline show on an outdoor festival. We’ve known about Jens and his freaks for a long time. He gave the name to our band and been supporting us since day one, before our demos where public or even recorded, before when there was only a young and naive dream of playing for any crowds or getting record deals, before we even played a single show – before Devil Man even was written and before the band was fully formed, before when it was just the beginning of an idea.”
