CJ WIldheart to Release New Album ‘Blood’ in October

CJ WIldheart New Album Blood Released October 20th

 CJ Wildheart

On October 20th CJ Wildheart proudly releases his new studio album, ‘Blood’, a riot of sound all held together through force of conviction, on Devilspit Records.

With a punk spirit and a truck full of great tunes, the cathartic Blood pulsates with a bounding energy.  The contrast between the sheen and tooth-shaking sound on Blood’s 10 incisive and crystalline tracks will leave the listener reeling.

Watch now the first video Kiss It, which packs a ferocious punch and as CJ explains “Sometimes you just got to man up and apologise for your wrong doings. Kiss it!” :

The album was produced by Dave Draper and CJ, who played all the instruments, except drums provided by Jason Bowld (Pitch Shifter, Bullet For My Valentine).

Blood is an insouciant blast of punk rock angst, all brought together with melody and riffs. Opener  “Tea Leaf” sets the tone and lets you know right away that CJ isn’t messing around, the following nine songs include a cover of Weezer’s Tired Of Sex. Every song on Blood hits with immediacy and quickly feels like music you’ve known for years, while CJ’s wickedly humorous lyrics permeate throughout the album.

Blood’s heavy sound is partially attributed to CJ’s ill health, caused by a severe bout of food poisoning, resulting in two operations ‘I recorded this album in constant pain so that pushed me to make an album where I could just vent and let stuff out.” While the raw honesty of Blood’s lyrics stem from “letting out the negative emotions that were bothering me.”

CJ sounds as spirited and aggressive as ever and Blood is everything you could hope for from this distinctive and talented artist.

Primal. Gigantic. Loud as cannons. Blood is all of these things.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
