BLUES PILLS: new tour dates!
The wait is over and BLUES PILLS finally return to stages all over Europe. The tour includes some of the biggest festivals from Donington’s legendary Download, to the massive Hellfest and the alternative rock twins Southside / Hurricane in Germany, as well as selected club shows to present their latest third album “Holy Moly!” and other fan favorites.
The band comments: “It is two years ago when we started our new album campaign with the release of the ‘Proud Woman’ single and the pandemic stopped all live activities. We can’t wait to finally present the ‘Holy Moly!’ songs live and celebrate the power of music with you. Music is an universal language of love and peace – something that is well needed. Looking forward to see you soon. Peace!“
Infamous for their charismatic performances, the rock quartet BLUES PILLS had a fast journey of international success. They went straight from dirty, crowded bars to playing at some of Europe’s biggest festivals such as Download, Rock am Ring, Wacken Open Air and Roskilde.
Their self-titled debut album went straight into the European charts and hit #4 in Germany and their second album “Lady in Gold” landed a #1 in Germany. BLUES PILLS is a heavy dose of pure rock power, and with hundreds of thousands of sold records and one of today’s strongest rock vocalists, this band is here to stay.
Under the layers of heavy psychedelic blues rock and Elin Larsson‘s soulful and powerful voice, often compared to Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse and Adele, the core of BLUES PILLS has always been the restless search for change. Change in the human mind and the musical influences they embraced themselves with, from blackened soul to the trippy rides through 60’s rock music and the devils blues.
In 2020 BLUES PILLS released their critical acclaimed self-produced and recorded album “Holy Moly!” mixed by Grammy Award winning Andrew Scheps (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, IGGY POP, ADELE, BLACK SABBATH, RIVAL SONS, HOZIER et al).

If you were blazed by the heaviness of their first self titled album, and tripped to the psychedelic soul of “Lady In Gold” (#1 Germany) you won’t be immune to the effects of this third dose of the pills.
“Holy Moly!” was written, produced and recorded in BLUES PILLS’ own analogue studio which they built in the beautiful countryside of Närke, Sweden. In the old factory building, where the studio is located Zack, Elin and André spent almost a year recording and writing songs.
The album is recorded by BLUES PILLS guitarist Zack, although with some helping hands along the way from THE HIVES members Nicolaus Arson and Johan Gustafsson, as well as Martin Jacobsson from Rovljud Sound.
“Holy Moly!” is self- produced by BLUES PILLS and mixed by the Grammy award winning Andrew Scheps (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, IGGY POP, ADELE, BLACK SABBATH, RIVAL SONS, HOZIER). The album illustration “Beast” is by the artist Daria Hlazatova.
