The Golden Rule of International Touring is “Never tour acts you love, only tour acts that have had air-play and sold lots of records here.” Fuck that!

Cherry Bar in AC/DC Lane Melbourne is proud to announce that it’s bringing out the best blues rock garage punk band in the known Universe, The Bloody Hollies from San Diego California. Two shows only for Australia. Both shows at Cherry Bar. Seen the latest Festival line-ups? Where’s the rock n roll you ask? Where else? Cherry.

Yours Until the Bitter End is The Bloody Hollies' follow-up to the highly praised Who to Trust, Who to Kill, Who to Love which was released in 2007 on Alive Naturalsound. Many who are familiar with the band’s sound know them by their trademark murder-themed blues/rock anthems that remind listeners of the '60s and '70s golden age of rock & roll. The new album still embraces the dark side of raw garage punk, but comes armed with a more eclectic array of songwriting and musicianship. But don’t let the touches of organ, violin and xylophone fool you, the band’s hybrid of blues and rock & roll continue to shine more impressively than ever.

The Bloody Hollies recorded in San Diego, but enlisted the expertise of Jim Diamond in Detroit, a familiar friend of the band that helped bring the sound of this record to its full potential.

Yours Until the Bitter End is a work that reflects a lengthy career that fully embraces The Bloody Hollies’ vast influences while at the same time maintaining the quartet’s unique sound of explosive, over-driven mayhem balanced with intelligently thought-out songwriting.

What is most impressive about The Bloody Hollies, however, is the diversity of their strengths, ranging from '70s classic rock, Americana blues, to an even power-pop songwriting style. Wesley Doyle’s voice is stronger than ever and continues to shine, complimenting Joseph Horgen’s unique slide blues guitar style. The rhythm section of Matthew Bennett (drums) and Erik Noorgard (bass guitar) are as solid as ever and work together perfectly on this record which will go down as The Bloody Hollies’ most impressive to date.

Yours Until the Bitter End comes out September 13th through Alive Records and will available on CD Digipack, Digital Download and Red Colored Vinyl ltd. to 700.

Cherry co-owner James Young says, “The Bloody Hollies are uncontrollable, unforgettable and unmissable. This is the best raw rock n roll act going around and they just had to be brought to Cherry. And you have to be there.”
