“It’s heavy rock’n’roll with proper grit and robust soul” – Classic Rock “Soulful, instantly catchy and full-blooded rock music” – Planet Rock
The Dust Coda is thrilled to announce that they havesigned to genre-defining independent label Earache Records (also home to The Temperance Movement, Massive Wagons, Blackberry Smoke). To coincide with the news, the band is excited to launch a brand new single Limbo Man, taken from their forthcoming album Mojo Skylineset for release on 26th March 2021. The track is accompanied by a video, which can be watched here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeDRtblG7rE
Gleaming with sheer rock’n’roll, the video sees The Dust Coda set loose at Dunsfold Park, the home of Top Gear, and in harmony with the adrenalised energy of “Limbo Man” with the help of classic Ford Mustangs.
Label founder Digby Pearson comments:“Earache Records is thrilled to announce our signing of London’s The Dust Coda. Having scored chart placements in 2020 for Massive Wagons and Those Damn Crows, we can’t wait to begin working with these frontrunners in the New Wave of Classic Rock and turn heads in the rock community and beyond with Mojo Skyline, which we’re certain will become renowned as a modern rock classic.”
Lead guitarist Adam Mackie comments: “As a band when we finished making Mojo Skyline we knew we had made something special, and were super pumped and excited. As a result we didn’t want to rush anything out and were keen to find it the rightful home that it deserved. When Earache came along, it just seemed like a natural fit from the start. Myself and John remember reading about Earache as teenagers in magazines like Metal Hammer and Kerrang!, and to now join their roster amongst some of the big hitters in the rock scene and the best up and coming bands, it’s a great way to start the next chapter for The Dust Coda – things are only going to get louder from here!”
The Dust Coda’s forthcoming album Mojo Skyline was recorded at Modern World Studios with the multi-platinum, award-winning producer Clint Murphy (Manic Street Preachers, Thunder, Devilskin), and offers a plenitude of tracks that leap across the spectrum of rock’n’roll, containing half a decade’s worth of the band’s raw soul and innermost demons. Sleek yet hard-hitting rock’n’roll rooted in blues soul, the band clutches the echoes of the genre’s most beloved household names, from the pure, raw poetry of Led Zeppelin to the nasty muscle of Guns ‘N Roses, and bring them kicking and screaming into the 21st Century.
Mojo Skyline‘s vivid album cover is extracted from the mind of artist Nick Dwyer (who is best known for his eye-catching designs for Beavertown Brewery’s beloved brews such as Neck Oil and Gamma Ray).“I was trying to put across how these guys, who live and breathe destruction, dirt and chaos through their music might also spend their “down time” inhaling weirdness from other not so obvious places,” says Nick of the artwork. “They are on some sort of Natural Born Killers-esque trip, making a quick stop to watch a horror movie in the desert as the city disappears behind them. It’s a peyote sandwich washed down with whiskey and desert dust.”
Formed in 2015 around the nucleus of guitarist Adam Mackie and singer John Drake, The Dust Coda honed their sound during 2016 in the studio with award winning producer Clint Murphy. The band released their self-titled debut album in October 2017 to critical acclaim, were proclaimed “Ones To Watch” by Planet Rock and subsequently nominated for Best New Act 2017. During lockdown, The Dust Coda also released a four-track acoustic EP Early Days – Raw and Unplugged.
Having worked tirelessly building their live reputation across some of Britain’s favourite rock festivals, such as: Planet Rockstock, Winter’s End, Steelhouse Festival and Ramblin’ Man Fair; and with a touring schedule that has seen them share stages with Black Stone Cherry, The Dead Daisies and Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris, The Dust Coda are looking forward to hitting the road again, as soon as it is safe to do so.
