THE KRIS BARRAS BAND RELEASE NEW SONG 'PROPANE'


THE KRIS BARRAS BAND RELEASE NEW SONG 'PROPANE'
THE UPCOMING ALBUM THE DIVINE AND DIRTY COMES OUT
MARCH 23 VIA PROVOGUE/MASCOT LABEL GROUP




Kris Barras isn’t one to shy away from a challenge. As a former Mixed Martial Artist, the singer and guitarist has fought in front of 8000 people, lived it up in Las Vegas, dealt with bankruptcy, suffered a deep and personal loss, unleashed southern-fried blues fury on stages across Europe and been voted one of the best 13 Blues Guitarists in the World Right Now in 2017. Now the guitarist releases a new track called 'Propane' from his upcoming record 'The Divine And Dirty'

Kris Barras on the song 'Porpane'
" 'Propane' is quite different to the other songs on the album and anything I've written before. It's got a driving groove behind it but it's a bit softer than the other tracks. The song is about using people's negativity towards you as fuel to fire you up on whatever journey you might be on. It's about taking what the doubters say and using it to drive you on to succeed. The guitar solo on this track is one of my favourites of the album"

Check out the studio video for Propane below

 

The Divine And Dirty wears its heritage proudly. Songs such as I Don’t Owe Nobody Nothing, Propane and She’s More Than Enough shows the breadth of influences that stretches back to Led Zeppelin, the Stones, Howlin’ Wolf and Free. But there’s a modern energy to it as well that places Kris Barras in a similar mould to current heavyweights such as Rival Sons, Black Stone Cherry and The Cadillac Three.


The album is an eclectic beast that can fire out rocket-fuelled blues in Kick Me Down and gospel-infused rock’n’roll in the shape of Hail Mary but dial things back showing a tender side on Hold On For Tomorrow.

Produced by Josiah J Manning at Momentum Studios, Plymouth, ambition bleeds from every pore of The Divine And Dirty. It follows a triumphant year for Barras who in 2017 embarked on his first European tour, calling at Norway, Germany, Slovakia, Poland, Lithuania and jubilant sets at his biggest ever shows at RAWA Blues Festival (Poland) and Ramblin’ Man Fair last summer with his band; Josiah J Manning (Keyboards), Elliott Blackler (Bass) and Will Beavis (Drums).
