As the Norwegian hard rockers Gluecifer decided to call it quits in 2005, songwriter and guitarplayer Captain Poon quickly announced he´d be back. A brand new outfit named Bloodlights, a name he developed from some peculiar "on the road blackouts" during endless touring with Gluecifer, made their first on stage appearances in 2007.
With his new band he took the step into the centre of the stage as both lead singer and guitar player. Guitarist Howie B. joined the ride, and after a couple changes in the rhythm section, drummer Woody Lee and newly recruited bassplayer Chis Banjo have joined the mighty ranks.
After a hectic year of 2008 touring their debut album, along with acts such as Monster Magnet, Millencollin, Die Toten Hosen and The Hellacopters, they went back in the studio to record their second album "Simple Pleasures" in 2009. Another stint of touring followed the release, and along with tons of European gigs Bloodlights also did their first shows in Japan.
A good eighteen months later the band is finally ready to let go of "Stand Or Die",. This time with a content that suits the title as well as the attitude of Bloodlights. The boys from Oslo are taking no prisoners this time as their blasting out tracks like "10 Times" "Arme Around it" "Roll With Me" and "Sure Shot"
Anyone who feared traditional rock music might gasp its final breath in 2013 have nothing to worry about with this third Bloodlights disc. From start to finish this record is sure to rattle your windows and make you sweat with its hot riffage while simultaneously pitchforking major melody into your brain socket. The kings have indeed returned; all hail Bloodlights.
