HEAVY rock 'n' rollers The Bastard Sons have released their new EP Roads on Kaiju Records.
JJ Jackson - frontman of the York-based quintet - said: "Roads is basically in two parts.
"The opener - O Brothel Where Art Thou? - is really a stand alone track, and the rest of the EP flows more like a concept album with a story. Raise The Horse sets the scene and we start on a boat (the horse) going to war.The world jumps in and out of different time scales taking us to Sobre La Muerte, which is basically The Horseman of The Apocalypse, Death, in the spotlight of a psychiatrist explaining how he doesn't want to do it any more.
"Seasons End is the men on the boat preparing to go to battle and talking about friends lost and experiences of previous wars. We then cut to Death's story again in IV, which is basically Death deciding he needs to be part of the horsemen to keep the balance and that's what he was made to do. That then leads us on to Winter, which is the men from the boat going to war!"
The EP was recorded at Edge Recording Studios, Cheshire, and mastered by Ray Staff at Air Studios,who has previously worked on albums by Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Muse among others.
