Independent hard rock band Lola Black has a special early Halloween treat for audiences.
The band debuted the music video Thursday, for its cover of Concrete Blonde’s song ‘Bloodletting (Vampire Song).’ Thee video originally premiered on Dread Central. The song will be available for purchase Nov.1 through The Label Group/INgrooves Music group.
The band’s namesake and singer talked about the song and video in a recent interview, praising Concrete Blondes member for her work in the process.
“Covering ‘Bloodletting (The Vampire Song)’ by Concrete Blonde came very naturally to me,” she said. “Johnette Napolitano [Concrete Blonde bassist/singer] was a pioneer at bringing a subtle darkness with a sexy swag into heavy alternative rock. She herself said that the song was inspired by Anne Rice and the Vampire Chronicles. At the time, the mainstream didn’t believe ‘Bloodletting’ would work, but the song went on to become a cult classic, and through our interpretation, we want to keep that spirit going. Much like Concrete Blonde, our darker side has never been fully embraced, so it is as if we were meat to cover this song and keep that middle finger in the air to the mainstream.”
Lola Black’s first record was the band’s 2012 EP Dia de los Borrachos. That record produced the single ‘Borracho.’ The EP was followed up in 2014, by the record Till Death do us Part. The band released its second album Nothing’s Gonna Be Alright in 2018.
