NEW ALBUM, ‘CHARIOT OF THE GODS’ IS OUT ON FRIDAY 11 MARCH

The latest Hoodoo Gurus album, CHARIOT OF THE GODS will finally be available on FRIDAY 11 MARCH, eight weeks from today. The album contains 14 tracks and it includes the four singles already released (in date-reverse order) CARRY ON, WORLD OF PAIN, GET OUT OF DODGE and ANSWERED PRAYERS.

We are also announcing that on THURSDAY 10 MARCH, the night before the album is released, there will be a special ONE-OFF LIVE EVENT during which we will play the entire new album completely LIVE IN THE STUDIO, to be broadcast over the internet. We’ve spent a lot of time and energy (not to mention expense) putting fancy production touches on our latest studio effort but we are so confident in the strength of these new songs that we are letting everyone hear the entire album for the first time completely unvarnished, performed by the four of us absolutely live.

NEW SINGLE ‘CARRY ON” OUT NOW!

Yes! We are releasing a brand new single today – and what a great way to start the week.

I wrote ‘Carry On’ before the pandemic but it’s development was very much affected by it. After releasing ‘Answered Prayers’ at the end of 2019, we were keen to get back in the rehearsal studio and start working on songs for our next album in earnest. ‘Get Out Of Dodge’ and ‘Carry On’ came up quite early in the rehearsal process and both songs immediately struck us as having something special and we couldn’t wait to get into the studio and record them.

Unfortunately COVID-19 had other plans for the world and we we all went into total lockdown for a few months. During that time we only got to talk to each other over Zoom, which was not exactly conducive to rehearsal and recording rock ’n’ roll songs. I know that it’s possible to make music remotely but for a living, breathing rock group like us we need to feel the energy that circulates between us when we’re playing together. That is actually the most important thing we try to capture on record and on stage.

Eventually we were able to crawl out of our hidey holes (though we had to return again this year) and despite the interruptions we managed to record a few singles as well as finish our next album. That’s coming out next year (in a couple of months) but right now we’re proud to present ‘Carry On’

It’s a song about doing the best you can despite “the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune” (as Shakespeare put it). Whether it’s co-workers who make your life harder or the world in general, sometimes you just have to dig deep and get things done to the best of your ability even though you know your efforts may go unrewarded and unappreciated. You’ll know what you achieved, and that’s the most important thing.
