More dirty blues from the two piece band Little Hurricane are heading San Diego’s way with the release of their new album GOLD FEVER on March 4th. GOLD FEVER will stand as the band’s second release of originals following 2011’s Homewrecker, which garnished awards for Album of the Year and Best Alternative Album at The San Diego Music Awards. The band kept the studio warm between releases issuing last year’s free album download of covers Stay Classy. Sandwiched in-between these two records, the collection of covers on Stay Classy gave the band a chance to step into otherwise uncharted territory while also exploring some of their roots.
So what can we expect on GOLD FEVER, the first release by the band on its newly formed Death Valley Records?
“GOLD FEVER was inspired by our time spent traveling and exploring the deserts of Southern California. It was recorded at an old apple packing farm from the 1800′s in the gold rush town of Julian, CA. We survived recording in 100+ degree heat without AC, black widows, scorpions, tarantulas, and true gold country life in the weeks we spent in Julian. As with our first album, we maintained our DIY attitude towards music, writing, recording and producing ourselves,” divulged Little Hurricane in their most recent press release.
If the first single, “Sheep In Wolves Clothes,” which debuted back in December, is any indication on the direction and sound of the next Little Hurricane record, things are definitely sounding promising.
In addition to the release, the band scored the opening slot on the John Butler Trio tour that kicks off in February. And, as fate would have it, the tour ends in glorious San Diego with a show at The House of Blues on Feb 23rd.
