The 6th of June 2011 will see GoldSoul welcomed to the Of National Importance Records roster with the release of their debut single ‘Blood Red’. Backed with live favourite ‘Waiting a Lifetime’, the two tracks will be available on limited edition blood red 7″ vinyl and digital download. Pre-orders are available from our shop now complete with free digital download, whilst the first will also come with copies of our newly released 10-track ‘Dechaired EP’ and free pin-badges. Here’s what Exposed Magazine had to say of the single:
“In amongst those Common People, Mardy Bums, and Bigger Boys & Stolen Sweethearts, GoldSoul are tarnishing the Steel City with their taste of Black Rebel sleazy rock. Brash and reckless, it’s a track that doesn’t take shit from anyone, with its lead guitar enveloping like a piercing bullet, only to be restrained and outdone by a thick thump of a bassline that rips and roars around breaking as much as it possibly can. Leading the rebellion is singer David Mapson. Wild and untamed, his growling vocals bellow: “It’s a long road to the city lights, won’t you come sit and sing with me tonight?”. Whilst Artcic Monkeys are trying a style of similar vein in recent years, here’s a worthy alternative.” 7/10
