The Blue Stones - "The Hard Part" (audio) (premiere)

Hailing from the chilly climes of Windsor, Ontario, the Blue Stones turn the tables on their environment by playing the hottest kind of rock.

Hailing from the chilly climes of Windsor, Ontario, the Blue Stones turn the tables on their environment by playing the hottest kind of rock. Playing as a duo gives their blues rock sound lots of punch, rather like the White Stripes in that sense. The Blues Stones' 2012 album, How's That Sound?, charted on Bandcamp's best-selling list and that combined with buzzed about live shows, puts the group on a path to success for their latest album, Black Holes, which releases this April. Today we are sharing the first single for that upcoming album, charging hard rock number "The Hard Part".

Guitarist and vocalist Tarek Jafar says, "Damn good fun to write, and even more of a blast to play live. It really stands out amidst the dark and brooding tones of the album overall and shows that even though our sound may evolve over time, we never forget our edgy, blues-rock roots.”

The Blue Stones' Black Holes releases April 15th via Blue Stones Music.
