DISSIDENTS TAKE THE LONG ROAD!
West Country rockers RICHARD DAVIES & THE DISSIDENTS have unveiled another new video from their acclaimed debut album.
‘(Long Road) To Your Heart’ is taken from Human Traffic, which was released through Bucketfull Of Brains Records back in June.
The video is the work of longtime friend and collaborator Darren Stockford.
Although the band have been unable to play live thanks to Covid restrictions, the album has taken on a life of its own. Huge-selling Spanish language newspaper El Pais rated the album among the top rock releases of the year so far alongside Metallica, The Pretenders and newcomers Idles and Fontaines DC. The upshot has been an explosion in social media followers across Spain, Mexico and Brazil.
The band, who are made up of members of Mega City Four, Last Great Dreamers, Tiny Monroe and The Snakes, are currently in talks with various agents about Spanish dates just as soon as lockdown permits them.
“We’re really delighted by the way the album has been received not only in the UK but in Spain and the Spanish speaking world,” says Davies. “I think that may have something to do with the Alejandro Escovedo connection, and the enduring popularity of guitar music over there. The way music is now available on the internet probably has something to do with it too. We’re really looking forward to playing the songs live as soon as this dreadful pandemic allows. Stay safe music lovers and I hope you’re missing us as much as we’re missing you!”
‘(Long Road) To Your Heart’ is available on Spotify and all the usual digital platforms.
Human Traffic is available here.
