Burning Brides at Little Radio Summer Camp
In less then 12 hours, I was back at Little Radio watching the Burning Brides rip through a set of songs featuring tracks off of their new album "Hang Love". I recently covered the Burning Brides when they opened for Wolfmother at the Grove a month ago and picked up their new album at the show. "Hang Love" was officially released two weeks ago and is quite the barnburner in terms of guitar riffs, groovy basslines, and thumping drums. I did manage to peak at Dmitri Coats (Vocals/Guitar) pedal setup which included a Vox Wah pedal and an Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Fuzz pedal running through an Orange head and cabinent. Melanie Coats (Bass) was rocking out so hard her bass string snapped which is a difficult feat to accomplish. Highlights from their thirty minute set included "San Diego", "Arctic Snow", "Heart Full Of Black", and "Waring Street".If you like Queens of the Stone Age with a sprinkle of Nirvana and the Stooges then pick up the new album from Burning Brides.
