All Them Witches: veröffentlichen neuen Song „The Children Of Coyote Woman“

Das neue Album "Nothing As The Ideal" erscheint am 04.09.20

All Them Witches bieten eine schöne Atempause von all dem Chaos, das in der Welt vor sich geht. Die Rocker aus Nashville haben die bevorstehende Veröffentlichung eines neuen Albums mit dem Titel Nothing As The Ideal angekündigt.

Nothing As The Ideal wird am 04.09. via New West Records veröffentlicht. Das Album wurde in den Legendären London´s Abbey Road Studios aufgenommen, wo unter anderem die Beatles den Großteil ihres Katalogs eingespielt haben.

Frontmann Charles Michael Parks Jr. sagt folgendes zum neuen Song:

„‚The Children of Coyote Woman‘ is a retelling of the founding of Rome through a southern perspective. Two brothers fight to see who will control the region after the passing of their mother, a woman so fierce and legendary that people would rather leave their homes than get in her way. Though powerful, though fierce, their lives exist in a minuscule blip in the universe and are still tied to the struggles and hardships of trying to survive in the poor rural south. In my mind, there are a lot of similarities between the Roman empire and the USA. The same essence of power and ingenuity, as well as it’s brutal conquests for resources. The founding fathers undoubtedly studied the reign of the Caesars and chose it as a model for their new republic.“

Am 27.02. machte sich die Band auf nach London, um ihr Album in den Abbey Road Studios aufzunehmen. McLeod beschreibt die Zeit wie folgt: “It was incredible. We have a studio south of Nashville, and it’s an amazing sounding space, but it just wasn’t the right time to record this record there. I decided that I wanted to do another album with Mikey Allred, who produced and engineered and mixed Dying Surfer Meets His Maker. We started writing more in January and February, and Mikey and I were talking one day and we both just came up with the Abbey Road idea. Robbie and [bassist Michael] Parks were totally on board, and something like later that afternoon, we booked our dates.”

Auch bei den erfahrenen All Them Witches löste das legendäre Studio etwas besonderes aus, wie McLeod fortfährt: “I walked in and it was like one of those out of body experiences. Robby got there like an hour before I did and he looked at me and was like, ‘Dude, I almost cried three times.’ It’s a huge room, and the vibe isn’t in the vintage microphones that the Beatles used, it’s not in any of the gear, the old compressors and all that stuff … you go there because the room sounds good. For me, that was the icing on the cake. This studio actually just sounds amazing.”

Die Band kehrte am 09.03. in die Staaten zurück, Tage nachdem die Tornados über Nashville hinweggefegt waren und Tage bevor das Land wegen der Coronavirus-Pandemie geschlossen werden sollte. Obwohl Amerika noch einiges zu bewerkstelligen hat, freut sich McLeod darauf, diese neue Musik mit der Welt zu teilen, wie er sagt.
“We just tend to record and write and make the music that we want to make at that specific moment. It’s no laughing matter, everything that has happened and continues to happen, but it was almost like it was meant to be that we were supposed to go to London and get this album done. It was a blessing that we could get in and out. It was a wild time to be making an album.”
