Blood Red Shoes - Get Tragic
After a four-year hiatus Blood Red Shoes are back with fresh heads and their new album ‘Get Tragic’ which is released today.
January 25, 2019
In 2014 Blood Red Shoes went their separate ways after years of relentless touring and music making. The Brighton-based duo had sadly exhausted each other.
“We didn’t, at any point, have a breather. We probably didn’t see each other for about 10 days a year, tops, for six or seven years. We got to the end of the fourth record and were like, ‘Fuck you, I never want to see you again,'" says drummer and vocalist Steven Ansel.
Their self-titled and self-made fourth album ended on a sour note, leading to vocalist and guitarist Laura Mary-Carter jetting off to LA to focus on her own doings, while Ansel explains he "went out and took drugs and went clubbing for about half a year. I don’t remember a lot about it. Classic break-up move, right?”
The duo's new album was born out of their separation and individual paths taken during their break, as Ansel explains, "The reason we called it Get Tragic is because we realised that everything we’ve been doing over the last three years is kinda tragic! Just like, ‘Ooh, I hate you, I’m going to America to find myself’, and like ‘Ooh, I’m gonna party for the rest of the year!’ Everything about it is such a cliché – we were like, ‘We’ve turned into a fuckin' tragedy!’”
News of their new record also arrives with some fresh UK and European tour dates.
