London punk-blues trio MIRACULOUS MULE issue a new 3-track download single this week, and they're sharing one of the tracks with Vive Le Rock!
The release follows on from their acclaimed album Two Tonne Testimony, released in March through Muletone/Bronzerat.
The lead track is a reissue of 'Sound Of The Summer', whose video was premiered by Vive Le Rock last July. But this time around they're sharing their tripped out version of the dark gospel standard 'In My Time Of Dying' made famous by Led Zeppelin.
Says frontman Michael J Sheehy, "It's an old traditional gospel song which had been recorded by Blind Willie Johnson, Josh White and Bob Dylan long before Zep. Weirdly our version came out as two distinct halves, the first part sounding more like Black Sabbath than LZ and the second half perhaps sounding a little like Robert Plant’s recent experiments with African music."
Miraculous Mule have dates lined up at....
17th June: Stag’s Head, London (w/ TABLE SCRAPS)
23rd June: Glastonbury Festival
14th July: Once Upon A Time In The West Festival
Rounded out by the track 'Ain't It Hard', the single is set for release on 16 June and is available through iTunes.
