Huntington Beach, CA (PressExposure) November 12, 2013 -- The rockers from Los Angeles known as Tijuana Bullfight have officially released their latest single, titled, "Heaven." The single is a cover of the song of the same name originally recorded in 1983 by the Psychedelic Furs. The track has been arranged and performed in Tijuana Bullfight's signature brand of sludge rock, consistent with both their new 2013 LP, "Southern California," and their popular 2008 self-titled debut LP. "Heaven" is an excellent introduction to this spectacular crew from Southern California for listeners not yet acquainted, and recommended to fans of rock music of any genre.
Sludge rock is a subgenre of heavy metal that shares roots in metal and punk rock music, and which also often incorporates early '90s alternative music attributes from grunge and "noise" rock. Its hotbed is generally considered to be the New Orleans area. Now with two LPs and this standout new single, "Heaven," under their belt, Tijuana Bullfight have clearly founded the "So Cal sludge" scene on the West Coast, and Los Angeles has clearly embraced them.
Tijuana Bullfight cite as main artistic influences such musicians as Nirvana, The Pixies, Failure, Queens of the Stone Age, Black Sabbath, and the Foo fighters. Their characteristic tone makes them absolutely suitable for a live lineup that might include any or all of the above, and indeed their endless creativity and unwavering knack for writing one powerful song after another place them on the same top shelf of rock excellence.
The band's recent recordings have been cut at Scott Weiland's own Lavish Studios and the legendary Entourage Studios, respectively. Producer/engineers on the project include the late Mike Shipley (Van Halen, Def Leppard) and Rae Dileo (Filter). Intuitively, the production on the new single and that of their new LP cannot possibly be better, and bears the sonic feel of a long-awaited record one has just stripped the cellophane from and has excitedly begun to hear for the first time.
Fans of sludge rock, alt- rock, grunge, punk, and rock 'n' roll in general have great reason to rejoice in the publication of "Heaven," as well as in the new Tijuana Bullfight LP. Audiophiles everywhere are strongly encouraged to get in early on this groundbreaking, heavy-hitting So. Cal. crew.
"Heaven" by Tijuana Bullfight is available online worldwide.
