Band on The Verge...
I’m sure by now as the month of April wraps up, that everyone knows that I have a little bit of a love affair with Classic Rock going on.
But I have another confession to make.
I sometimes cheat on Classic Rock with another love of mine - All things Dave Grohl.
Currently Dave and his band, Foo Fighters, are on tour promoting their current album, Concrete and Gold. It’s got some good tunes on it, you should check it out sometime.
But, believe it or not… this post is NOT about Dave or Foo Fighters.
It’s about a band that has been opening for them recently. They call themselves The Struts
Perhaps you’ve heard of them. Perhaps not.
The Struts are from England, and they formed their little band back in 2009. The Struts have been described as "unabashedly over the top retro-fetishist classic rock" and "glamorous and dangerous". Maybe that’s why I like them. Or perhaps it’s because the lead singer reminds me of Freddie Mercury.
To date, The Struts have released one studio album - Everybody Wants, and 3 EPs - Kiss This, Have You Heard… and Live and Unplugged.
In 2015 the band relocated to Los Angeles. They appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Late Night With Seth Meyers. Also in 2015 they were named "Band on the Verge" by USA Today.
Aside from Foo Fighters, they have opened for The Who, The Rolling Stones and Guns N Roses.
Enough with the intro. Nothing speaks louder about a band than their sound. So let’s have a listen. I’ve put together a little playlist for you to enjoy as you go about your day.
So what do you think about The Struts? Had you heard of them before?
