"Hang Love," the third album by BURNING BRIDES, has been moved to a June 19 release date (not April 24 as was previously announced). The album was produced by guitarist/vocalist Dimitri Coats and follows the Brides' 2004 critically-acclaimed "Leave No Ashes."
"Hang Love" will be released on the independent Modart imprint with distribution through Caroline/EMI. Said Coats, "We may be one of the few bands doing it right now, but this is the way the future is going to be. We own the masters, we dictate how and when we do things, we take the risks."
The band - Coats, his real-life bride bassist Melanie Coats, and new drummer Pete Beeman (Guzzard), teamed up last fall with engineer Mathias Schneeberger (Joseph Arthur, St. Vitus, Mark Lanegan) and recorded the album over a six-week period at Schneeberger's Arcadia, CA studio.
"We knew we had to make up for lost time and come out with the best Brides album yet," confides Dimitri. "'Hang Love' is by far our heaviest album and the best example of what and who we are. Our band is all about opposites, we've always been into merging horror and humor with beauty and hope."
The album explodes with the first track, "Ring Around the Rosary," its religious imagery mixed with some wicked metal. "Waring Street" is written from the perspective of a serial killer loose in L.A.'s exclusive Hancock Park area, "Unglued" is for anyone who has lost someone they loved, and "Feel No Shame," has a Black Sabbath-meets-ZZ Top feel. "She Comes To Me," considered by Dimitri to be the record's centerpiece, was written as a prayer to "please come back" when he and Melanie were broken up for a time.
Burning Brides released its first album in 2001, "Fall of the Plastic Empire," made for $5000 in a motorcycle garage in Philadelphia, and earned its fair of share of comparisons to Nirvana's "Bleach." The band gained a reputation for being great live, became a buzz band and found themselves in a huge bidding war. Dimitri recalls, "We were the last of the unknown bands to get a million dollar record deal." "Leave No Ashes," produced by George Drakoulias (The Black Crowes, Tom Petty), was released in 2004, and received great press. Despite the initial success, the band was jettisoned from its record label, suffered drug problems, personal and professional splits; then reconciliation, a move to Los Angeles, marriage, a new drummer, and a fresh start.
The stoner rock / doom metal outfit THE HIDDEN HAND will be hitting the road on the upcoming MASTODON/ BURNING BRIDES tour. The band will be supporting their current release, "Mother, Teacher, Destroyer", which was released in late November ‘04 by Southern Lord. It features the first studio performance by Scott “Wino” Weinrich (St. Vitus, The Obsessed, Spirit Caravan) coming off his successful collaboration with Dave Grohl and the Probot project.
