DRAW! is the debut album from Irelands finest rock 'n' roll band The Aluskas released through Independent label Cobweb Recordings. The band previously released their debut single ‘Backwater Woods’ in January and follow-up single ‘Where We Started Out’ in March to critical acclaim. Both ‘Backwater Woods’ and ‘Where We Started Out’ are part of the album as is the groups third single ‘Skin & Bones’ which is due out in September 2012.
The Aluskas spent the best part of 2011 playing shows and recording their debut album at AP Studios with esteemed Engineer Antimo Kelly Puca. DRAW! is the culmination of their efforts there. The album is an eclectic mix of music, meshing different styles and genres, from the 50’s rock ‘n’ roller ‘Sorrys’ Not A Bullet Proof Vest’ and folk ballad ‘The Sailor’ to the epic urgency of album closer ‘Reborn In Time’. DRAW! runs the gamut of the bands’ influences. The album opens with the explosive crack of gunfire as a duel in the old west comes to its conclusion. From there, each song takes you on a unique aural experience which rewards with every repeat listen.
In the spirit of the Independent music scene, The Aluskas manage all aspects of their creative output, from producing & promoting their own records to directing and shooting their own music videos. The band has plans to tour the record in the coming months and have a number of summer shows lined up as well. DRAW! is available as a digital download through Bandcamp, BandPage, iTunes, Amazon MP3 and Napster etc. and also through The Aluskas Official Online Store (www.thealuskas.com
) from July 30th 2012. It is also available as a physical CD release from several independent stores in Ireland, here on bandcamp, the bands officials site (www.thealuskas.com
) and at the groups live shows.
