With no details known about the B-sides, 'Bad Blood' has been announced as teaser-single from upcoming 'Diamond Hoo Ha' album. Like other 'leaked' album tracks like 'Rough Knuckles' and both tracks from previous single, rumours about the new album being a lot more rocking than 'Road To Rouen' prove to be valid.
'Bad Blood' is a wonderful uptempo track with a driving rhythm that reminds me of QOTSA from a few years back. Bob's keyboards indeed fit the description of 'Mad Scientist', photographer Greg Allum gave me a few months ago. And as expected the studio versions show much more colour, warmth and depth than the available live renditions. Which makes me even more curious about the album!
