Here it is! The first single from the upcoming second album “Death or Eternal Glory” from Norwegian high octane rockers The Gasölines! Released today July 29th 2022: https://youtu.be/UBAhQn5KgmI
This is the follow-up of the debut album “Cannonball Run” which was released September 10th 2021. The debut received lots of awesome reviews from across the globe and has (to this date) been sold on LP, CD and cassettes to 18 countries on 5 continents.
Says Morten Gasöline, the main man behind the band has written all music and all lyrics yet again:
“- The “Cannonball Run” album turned out to be so much fun to make. The reception it got from fans all over was overwhelming. I didn’t plan to make a follow-up so soon afterwards, but suddenly I had the ideas and the timing was right to make another album. And here it is!”, he says.
About the first single «Rum Runner 500»:
«- The song is a no-nonsense rocker. It’s an in-your-face song with attitude and a guitar solo that suits each other perfectly. It was the first song idea I had for the second album and it set the tone for it. When I was writing the song, I saw this documentary about the rum runners in the prohibition era in USA and how some of the drivers gave birth to racing that we know today. They were obviously skilled drivers. It’s a cool bit of history here. Cars, booze and hellraising is definitely rock’n’roll!».
About the run of upcoming singles and full album:
«This time around there will be a new single released digitally every two weeks from now. The full album will be released digitally after that.
But: the physical formats LP, CD and cassette are in production. Pre-orders will be set up soon. As soon as all the formats are in, they will be shipped. That means those who buy a physical format will receive it before the full digital release. Which is fair and a gesture and thank you from us. You have paid for the product and you receive it earlier than all those who can listen to it digitally for free. If everything goes to plan (it rarely does, there are always Spinal Tap moments…) then those who buy the physical formats will receive them many weeks earlier than the full digital release.
