Eddie & The Wolves Have a Tasty Sin

Derby based blues rockers Eddie & The Wolves has a new single out in ‘The Devil’s Wrong, But Not to Blame,’ taken from their forthcoming album, Tasty Sin,alongside what’s being touted as a “provocative video”.

Delving into themes of faith, love, and fear, ‘The Devil’s Wrong, But Not To Blame’ is a song that’s said to challenge listeners to reconsider their motives for unquestioningly serving a deity, especially in a modern world where many are turning away from religion. The song suggests that the only way to maintain religious adherence is through early indoctrination. Highlighting the shared themes and meanings across various world religions, the track posing a provocative question: If the devil is in hell punishing sinners, is he truly bad or wrong?

This new track gives fans and new listeners of the band a taste of what to expect from the group’s sophomore studio album, Tasty Sin, scheduled for release in September via Revolver Records.

Rooted deeply in the rich tapestry of classic rock, Tasty Sin pays homage to the greats of rock while daringly venturing into uncharted territories. Blues-infused guitar riffs weave with powerful melodies, as husband and wife Eddie and Char Saffell’s emotive vocals breathe life into tales of love, rebellion, and adventure, echoing the timeless themes that have always resonated within the heart of rock music.

Mind you, Tasty Sin isn’t a nostalgic clone of the past. The album incorporates modern elements that infuse synthesisers, computer and contemporary production techniques fusing the old and the new.

We’re promised foot-stomping anthems like album title track ‘Tasty Sin’ and ‘Voodoo’ demanding to be played at full volume, to the intimate ballads like ‘One Night’ and ‘Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now’ that tug at the heartstrings. Tasty Sin’s said to offer a diverse and captivating musical experience, with Eddie & The Wolves not just students of rock history but  ready to carve out their own legacy in the world of music.

The magic of the music lies not just in the songs but also in the story behind the album creation. Eddie and Char crafted this new release allowing the freedom to experiment, refine, and truly find their unique sound without the constraints of a traditional recording studio. Being able to spend time with bassist Joe Griffiths and guitarist Cain Paisley defined their sound and artistic contributions to the new long player.

To capture the energy and dynamism of their live performances, and add the heartbeat for the project Eddie and Char took their recordings to band drummer Ben Gaines’ studio, Godhand Studios, located above Derby’s premier rock venue, The Hairy Dog. 

The result is an album that feels both intimate and expansive, a testament to the band’s passion, dedication, and collaborative spirit. 

Tasty Sin will feature the following tracks: The Devil’s Wrong’, ‘But Not to Blame’, ‘Tasty Sin’, ‘Voodoo’, ‘Blood Runs Cold’, ‘Different Kinda Girl’, ‘One Night’, ‘Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us’, ‘Come Out With Me Tonight’ and ‘Crawling’.
