Philadelphias blistering 3-piece Burning Brides release a brand new single entitled Plank Of Fire on March 31st. Plank Of Fire precedes the release of their debut album Fall Of The Plastic Empire, which is out on April 7th.
Plank Of Fire is released on CD only and features the additional tracks Rainy Days and Steramine.
Fall Of The Plastic Empire was recently described by the NME as one of the first great LPs of the year. It features eleven manic, bile-bellied scorching wedges of radio-friendly metal, powered by a catchy 50s pop savvy. Songs like Rainy Days and Glass Slipper pound hard, but arent afraid to pop either. Vocalist Dimitri Coats, whose vocal influences range from Jim Morrison to Iggy Pop, punctuates the aggressive tracks with charmingly honest lyrics. Add cool rock chick bassist Melanie Campbell and former Hot Snakes/Delta 72 demon drummer Jason Kourkounis and youve got the makings of something very special.
Track-listing for Fall Of The Plastic Empire goes like this:
Plank Of Fire / Glass Slipper / If Im A Man / Arctic Snow / At The Levity Ball / Stabbed In The Back Of The Heart / Rainy Days / Elevator / Blood On The Highway / Plastic Empire / See You Empty
Burning Brides recently came crashing over to these shores where they played some incendiary live shows to promote their last single offering The Glass Slipper EP. They return in March and April fresh from supporting Audioslave in the US.
