The Southern Belles energetic blend of southern-style psychedelic rock and roll has earned them fans from coast to coast, with the quartet—composed of Adrian Ciucci (guitar/vocals), Tommy Booker (keys/vocals), Aaron Zarrow (drums/vocals) and Mikey Sellemi—regularly hitting the road and bringing their high-octane performances to eager audiences across the country. On August 5th, The Southern Belles will independently release their third studio album dubbed In The Middle Of The Night. Yesterday, the band premiered the first track from the new release through Sirius Jam On, called “L.A. Moves.” Today, Live For Live Music is excited to share the single. “LA Moves” is the third track on the new album, from the A side of the record.
Says guitarist Adrian Ciucci about the new track, “‘LA Moves’ has been in the live rotation for many years, so as a song it’s grown with the band. It fit perfectly with the concept of the album and we’re all really excited to get a studio version of it out into the world.”
Since 2012, The Southern Belles have been spreading their psychedelic jams up and down the east coast. With two albums under their belt, the band went into The Ward recording studio with plenty of fresh ideas, and what would eventually become the full concept of In the Middle of the Night. Recorded and produced by Bryan Walthal and Rich Stine, the album recounts a journey of self-discovery; a reflection on the trials of life with an uplifting and hopeful vision into the future. The music is similarly expansive, ranging from hard-edged indie rock and progressive metal to danceable, funky jams and melodic, beautiful harmonies. The first single, “LA Moves,” is a particularly good representation of the album as it spans the varying facets of the album and shows what the band is capable of. Check it out below:
The Southern Belles are currently heading south for a date in Berryville, Virginia’s Pasture Palooza on July 14th. A week later on July 21st and 22nd, the band will hit Wilmington, North Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia, respectively. A three-night run across Florida falls across the last weekend in July as the group gears up to close out their tour. With dates across Charleston, South Carolina; Ashville, North Carolina; and Blacksburg, Virginia, the tour comes to a head on Saturday, August 5th, with a performance at Richmond, Virginia’s Broadberry, which will also serve as the album release party for In The Middle Of The Night.
