Camel Blues

  • Streaming + Download

    In a land full of quiet folk and hip-defying dance beats, Big East has set out to do the one thing they know how: rock. After gaining exposure with their debut album Condita (Naked Ear Records) the band has been tirelessly working on songwriting, as well as crafting their live shows into a veritable three-ring circus. The band combine the classic blues, soul, and rock & roll ideas of their musical forefathers with an urgent and modern indie-rock vibe. Big East crafts their songs with an impressive whiskey-soaked precision that pulls on heartstrings, raises fists for pumping and allows for all who listen to get down.

    On February 26th, Big East will release a new single, Camel Blues, on CD and later on a limited pressing of 7” vinyl in hopes of continuing the momentum that they have built over the last year. The two songs on the single are a testament to the hard work and care that the band puts into all of its efforts; “Camel Blues” showcases the bands’ dynamic, rhythmic and melodic consciousness. B-side “Goes Without Sayin’” puts all that aside with an all out aural assault of over-driven guitars, booming drums, funky bass and searing harmonica. Camel Blues is a two-song effort that serves as a catalyst to bridge the Big East of the past to their vision of the future of Rock ‘N’ Roll.

    Join Big East on February 26th at Great Scott in Allston, MA as they celebrate the release of their single Camel Blues. Joining them on the bill are locals Banana Phonetic and the Acre, as well the Poor But Sexy - hailing from Washington D.C. and featuring members of the Dismemberment Plan. Big East will hit the road for the first time on a tour of the Eastern United States a week following their single release show. If there was ever any question as to why to listen to Big East, the answer could be found in Boston’s Weekly Dig, “Big East is bitchin’, that’s why.”
