It’s been almost three years since Atlanta’s brazen sons of rock ‘n roll have released any new music, but they’re back, baby!
After wearing out the road, leaving crowds dazed and confused with their signature one-two-punch of a rock show, and holing up in their studio to write new material (not to mention opening for Bon Jovi at Atlanta’s Philips Arena), The Howling Tongues‘ latest offering to the rock gods, “Fever Dream,” features a few tricks up their sleeves: a psychedelic, Spaghetti Western-infused bridge and the howling (no pun intended) vocals of Atlanta’s fiery soul siren, Lola Cole.
“We wanted to incorporate that punk, Ramones-Stooges feel, especially in the breakdown chorus, with that simple kick-snare-hat thing,” says lead guitarist and producer, Nick Magliochetti. “The bridge of the song was inspired by old spaghetti westerns. We thought it would be cool to go somewhere completely different with the bridge, then bring it back to the original thing before taking it over the edge for the ending, especially with adding Lola’s vocals to the mix.”
“Fever Dream,” the first of a series of singles set to release over the next four months, launches the Tongues into a brand new dimension as they blaze forward, preaching the gospel of rock ‘n roll.
