Mid-week and we’re still rocking hard, today it’s the new single/video from Watts. Watts was the 1st band that I listened to from Rum Bar Records , I liked them to the point where I went looking for what else Rum Bar Records had been putting out. Watts has that old school , rock ‘n’ roll vibe going on with just enough punk to give it all a edge that makes you want to hear more from the band. I’m looking forward to the full album coming out and I’m sure all of you will be hearing more from Watts in the near future..
a little more about Watts from Rum Bar Records
Hard As Hell, Loud As Sin…
Boston. Home to legendary household rock ’n’ roll names like J. Geils Band, Aerosmith, the Neighborhoods, the Real Kids, the Cars; and the city’s own namesake, Boston. Now, the legend gets even bigger when cocksure rockers/movers/shakers Watts return with their fourth full-length album. We’re sliding 10 brand new shots down the Rum Bar and into your ears.
Featuring the made-for-radio leadoff single and video “Up All Night”, Watts takes you on a whirlwind wild ride from album opener,
“The Black Heart of Rock n Roll” through arena-ready, guitar-heavy rockers “Strut Like a Champ” and “She’s So Electric”. There’s a nod to the pop side with “Bye & Bye”, Toys in the Attic grit with “Stage Fright”, a bit of Keef twang in “Fast & Loose”, and ode to the the 45 “The B Side”, and closing out with the blistering, arena rock show stopper “Bring On The Lights”.
For this release, Watts dives deep into their record collections for inspiration from the likes of AC/DC, Cheap Trick, KISS, Stones and a whole lot more. These tracks are packed with blazing dual guitars
(John Blout/Dan Kopko), a heart-pounding wall of drums (Johnny Lynch), punk rock sensibility, Stones swagger, a backbeat of fist pumping bass-lines (Tim McCoy), and screaming lead vocals from all four members. If you want the ROCK, you GOT the rock!!
