The Texas Chainsaw Dust Lovers Unleash New Video ‘Summer Spleen’

Rock’n’Roll Desperados The Texas Chainsaw Dust Lovers

Unleash Crazy New Video “Summer Spleen” on The Obelisk.

France’s galvanizing heavy rock’n’roll foursome THE TEXAS CHAINSAW DUST LOVERS are unveiling today the video for their haunting new song “Summer Spleen”. TTCDL’s audacious debut “Me And The Devil” will be released on March 28th on Besta Records.

With their debut album, the Paris-based outfit delivers a bold and exhilirating rock’n’roll statement. Going through the heavy rock spectrum with swagger, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW DUST LOVERS blend a catchy and groove-laden songwriting with an irresistible Wild West gunslinger je-ne-sais-quoi that makes the listener crave a horse ride under a warm desert sunset.

Set your soul ablaze with TTCDL’s new video “Summer Spleen 

The band comments on this burning new video: “Summer Spleen is about the pain and sorrow we felt during the making of the album. We felt that we were rushing everything: the agenda was crazy, as we all have shitty jobs to keep things moving with the band. We didn’t have any lyrics for this track, although it was already on tape. In the meantime, a close relative died during the most busy week of August… That was just too much. The theme came naturally as we were working day and night, dealing with the grief, when everyone else seemed to have fun during this very hot summer. There are a lot of different influences in our work, in general. From cumbia to black metal, going through gothic rock, post punk, stoner rock and many other genres. I guess that in this video, we just went for a stylish mess of all those things.”

Debut album out on March 28th via Besta Records

A superb, sexy album.” – The Stoner Sound

Technically excellent, the sum of TTCDL combine to provide a pretty fantastic release

which oozes quality and screams fun.” – Musipedia Of Metal

Spontaneous, eclectic, TTCDL slay all bitter minds, laugh loud at genres and etiquettes,

proudly wearing the torch of a cheeky southern-sounding heavy rock.” – Metal Impact

Sexy sweaty rock anthems topped off by a deathly rock’n’roll crooning, Morricone-inspired heavy fuzzy tones, and there you are, with a bullet straight between your eyes! Formed in 2011 in Paris, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW DUST LOVERS brought together their definitive lineup with new guitarist Nagui Méhany in 2014. After their debut EP entitled Born Bad (2012) and the release of their blazing single “White Teeth”, the foursome puts out their second EP The Wolf Is Rising in 2014, getting high praises from the French press.

On the fringe of the hexagonal rock scene, TTCDL stand out from the crowd thanks to exalting south-infused atmospheres, hitting the riff highway somewhere between Clutch and Queens Of The Stone Age, with more desperado swagger than mere mortals can handle. After they extensively toured France and Spain, and played shows alongside The Midnight Ghost Train, No One Is Innocent, Black Spiders and The Picturebooks, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW DUST LOVERS are back in the spring of 2016 with an audacious and refreshing first album entitled Me And The Devil, out on March 28th via Besta Records.

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!
