Song Premiere: Roselit Bone, "A Word For Blue"

Roselit Bone is a seven-piece gothic country band who are set to release Crisis Actor next week on Get Loud Recordings. The Portland-based band sounds like what would happen if you play Johnny Cash and Joy Division albums at the same time, or as their bio describes them “somewhere between a demented Roy Orbison and an angelic Gun Club.”

Their upcoming release laces vignettes of systemic violence, sexual confusion, and class warfare with a wry, suicidal humor straight from the gut of America. Crisis Actor was recorded in Oregon City, Oregon, at Supernatural Sound, and was mixed by Noah Georgeson (Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom).

The band will be celebrating the release of their new album with an expansive tour itinerary (dates below):

Today, Ghettoblaster has the pleasure of sharing “A Word For Blue” from the record.
