There’s a line from an old press piece on Chemical Addiction – and you’re going back years on this one – but in a review of their Brian Jones EP, the opening track was noted as rocking “like a suitably mean bastard”.
The same could be said for Sour, the latest release from the Kilkenny quartet available from today (12 March) on all good digital platforms (links below).
It’s that Helmet-flavoured guitar-soaked goodness that’s a staple of the band’s sound over the years and builds on the release of The End last summer. Clocking in just over the 4-minute mark it should make a lot of guitar rock fans happy.
Plus, the artwork is a joy to behold.
More to come?
As hinted on a recent edition of The Metal Cell, frontman Ben Keating mentioned Sour was on the way and could be followed by a new track every three months for the rest of the year. If this is the first release of the year and there’s more of the same to come, it should turn out to be a pretty solid 2021.
Chemical Addiction are Ben Keating, Dan Pearson, Daire Nolan and Colin Dooley. The track was recorded at Crossroads in Kilkenny, mixed and mastered by Thomas Donoghue.
