Single I Travellin’ Blue Kings – A Stiffer Drink
Travellin’ Blue Kings – A Stiffer Drink (New single)
From the forthcoming album ‘Bending The Rules,’
worldwide Album release on April 22, 2022
Let’s rewind first to the end of 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic unfortunately also affects Travellin’ Blue Kings.
Originally founded by Belgian and Dutch musicians, it turned out that it was no longer possible to keep the band active & creative across national borders. The renewed “full Belgian” line-up bears solid letters of nobility and an impressive pedigree:Blues Lee, Howlin’ Bill, Rhythm Bombs, Fried Bourbon, Jim Cofey, Hideaway … just to name a few.
Last year, the two Covid singles “Gotta Get Away” and “Too Many People” set the tone and demonstrated a critical view of the world’s goings-on. And now there is “A Stiffer Drink”, the track that announces the album “Bending The Rules”, scheduled for release on April 22.
“A Stiffer Drink” (aren’t we all due for one by now?) once again articulates in a joyous tune a state of mind anno 2022. But this is just the first step.
