The Bloody Nerve fuses together the formidable talents of singer/guitarist Stacey Blood and powerhouse vocalist Laurie Ann Layne. Together, the duo generates an impressive tsunami of sound and rock energy and remain committed to this innovative album release.
Filled with meaning and message, this album is being released in phased instalments: act-by-act, episode-by-episode, building up tension and anticipation over time. Each single carries its own standalone feel and meaning, but together build up a broader, interconnected work of art and message.
‘Hard, Hard Winter’ opens with brooding synthesiser and drums. Laurie explains, “Since Act II, we’ve been able to acquire some new gear that’s allowed us to expand into some synth sounds, which is new territory for us. But it lends that dark, junky feel that Act lll really needs to earn its place in the album’s timeline”
“It’s hard to know what is good until you know what is bad,” says Stacey, “Like, really bad. How bad can it get? Most people don’t explore that. Act III takes us into the back corner of the basement. But it’s not just dejection; it’s horror. It’s a controlled demolition.”
Stacey explains further: “Episode 7 really deals with being decoupled from familiarity and what was once reality. It’s the downward spiral that just keeps going. It gets colder and colder and so far gone that we finally accept that the only way out of the situation is through it. No going back.”
In the words of Rock At Night “This is punk-rock, alternative music to its core and at its finest, broadcasting the social messages everyone needs to hear.”
Classic Rock Magazine called “the juicily named ‘All Blood, No Treasure’… “a gnarly mix of punkoid fire, Dead Weather-esque rock and social disenchantment,”
As Paul Cash of Pure Rock Fury remarked: “The Bloody Nerve offer a contemporary twist on Rock N Roll with their episodic ‘All Blood No Treasure’ album telling a familiar story that draws you in deeper with every passing song. Familiar, because that story is happening all around us on a day-to-day basis but do you have The Bloody Nerve to listen. Slick modern rock at its finest.” –
