THE BLOODY BEETROOTS (Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo) has announced the forthcoming album The Great Electronic Swindle due out October 20 on Last Gang Records. Pre-order here and also receive four album tracks: the two versions of “My Name Is Thunder,” “Saint Bass City Rockers” and “Pirates, Punks & Politics.”
On September 12th, THE BLOODY BEETROOTS revealed a new album single “Pirates, Punks & Politics” featuring Perry Farrell. For the song — which premiered via the U.K.’s BBC Radio 1 Dan Carter show — Rifo chose the modern rock innovator and legendary Jane’s Addiction vocalist, and reunited him with superstar drummer Tommy Lee to write and record this timely, politically charged musical manifesto.
Other collaborations on the album also came from deep within the rock world such as Gallows, Anders Friden of In Flames, Deap Vally and JET who banded together for their first recording in seven years with the double single “My Name Is Thunder.” There are also appearances from Greta Svabo Bech (known for collaborating with Deadmau5 on “Raise Your Weapon”), pop’s Eric Nally (Foxy Shazam) and Mr. Talkbox, plus Rival Sons’ Jay Buchanan — who takes a twist with the ballad “Nothing But Love.” Also included on the 17-song collection are three THE BLOODY BEETROOTS instrumentals “The Day Of The Locust,” “10,000 Prophets” and “Saint Bass City Rockers.” The full track list follows below.
