CASANOVAS ARE HOT TO TROT!
Aussie rockers THE CASANOVAS have just dropped a new single as a taster for their new album.
The ‘TNT’-channelling ‘Red Hot’ is the second single to be taken from the forthcoming Reptilian Overlord, following on from last Autumn’s ‘Hollywood Riot’. The new album itself is the Melbourne trio’s first full-length since 2015’s Terra Casanova.
Formed in 1999 and still fronted by founder and guitarist Tommy Boyce, the band have toured at home and abroad with the likes of The Living End, Motorhead, The White Stripes and The Datsuns, with whom they made their UK debut in 2003.
The new album finds them working with legendary Aussie producer Mark Opitz, whose CV – AC/DC, The Angels, Cold Chisel, Hoodoo Gurus, Divynyls, Hitmen, Rose Tattoo etc – reads like a Who’s Who of Aussie rock.
“Mark is the master at miking for great guitar tones,” says bassist Damo Campbell. “He definitely brought some of those techniques into our sessions… It was also pretty inspiring to be in the studio hearing some of Mark’s stories of some of the great rock bands he has worked with over his career.”
