Boss Keloid is back, baby! The band will release their new album Family The Smiling Thrush on June 4 and we're streaming their crunchy new single "Gentle Clovis" right now. Well, equal parts progressive rock and crunchy riffs with just enough psych thrown in there to really top things off. It's great.
"'Gentle Clovis' is is all about staying true to your roots and those parts of you which make you individual, whilst abandoning your ego when the greater good can benefit," said vocalist Alex Hurst. "It's a song about family, friends and letting your strengths individually or as part of a collective flourish and carry you."
Family The Smiling Thrush was produced and mastered by Chris Fielding (Conan, Dyscarnate, Winterfylleth) at Foel Studios in Wales. Lyricallym Family The Smiling Thrush focuses on the collective being greater than the individual, embracing all flaws and the strengths of each.
