Back in 1989 Rock n Roll band Sister Morphine were founded in South Wales. Over the following two years the band amassed a hardcore, local following and played a host of long lost venues such as Cardiff Bogiez. Alas, in 1991, just as Sister Morphine were set to release a four-track 12-inch single, the band members went their separate ways and the band was all but forgotten.
Fast forward thirty years and a global pandemic hit, giving band members time to clear those cobwebs, leading to the discovery of some long forgotten audio cassettes, containing long-lost songs, several of which only existed in rough rehearsal form. This discovery led to the band reuniting to record new versions of these songs, which in turn led to the bands long, long awaited debut album ‘Ghosts of Heartbreak City’ finally being recorded. The fifteen track album also contains four brand new songs and is due to be released on digital platforms and digipak CD on 14th February 2023 via Big Egg Records.
Ahead of the album being released the band have released the title track as a single. Ghosts of Heartbreak City, is a lively rock and roll song think Chuck Berry’s Johnny B. Goode meets Diamond Dogs’ Goodbye, Miss Jill. Should appeal to fans of Dogs D’Amour, Hanoi Rocks, Quireboys and The Rolling Stones.
