“Don’t Die” is about not giving up. The band members have had personal losses from friends over the last few years who have not made it out of their depression and desperation. Originally written for Nick’s father who was suffering from cancer, “Don’t Die” quickly grew and became the most emotional song on the Bloodstrings’ upcoming album.
The new album “Heartache Radio” will be released on June 16, 2023 via Dackelton Records.
On this musically and lyrically extremely diverse full-length, the foursome presents itself from a new side: instead of zombies and demons, there are political, socially critical, anti-sexist themes. The demons still exist, but they live in us, our society and our spirits and attitudes. But it also covers themes long explored by the band (singer Celina, her husband & bassist Nick, guitarist Manni and drummer Patrick): love, depression, alcohol, and the desire to break out.
Heartache Radio” was produced by the DONOTS at Heavy Kranich Studio in Münster.
The Bloodstrings will be playing SBÄM Fest (alongside Rancid, Flogging Molly, Frank Turner, Less Than Jake, Anti-Flag and many more) in Linz, Austria June 3-4.
