For gritty guitars, swamp-boogie vocals and diesel-dark attitude you don’t get much better than RAINBREAKERS. We’ve been following this band since they first wrenched sound from their frets, muscled-up their rhythms, and unbridled their uncompromising, propulsive whoosh…
So, it’s extra-brilliant for us, not only shout-out their April tour dates (see below) but also announce they tour will be in support of the inimitable New York blues-rock darling SARI SCHORR whose voice we have described as “blackberry brandy and oil-tar creosote...” and whose superb new 12-track live album is “gutsy, propellant and energizing…”
“The shows we have with Sari are gonna be a blast!” says drummer Sam Edwards, “It’s always a pleasure and an experience to support the musicians we have admired within the scene and it’s so good to be back on the road again. We love it! Can’t wait to see familiar, and new faces, at the shows.”
Rainbreakers take late-Sixties and early-Seventies British rock and bring it bang up to date by generously mixing in soul and garage, then adding a zesty dash of contemporary blues-rock.
The band have been playing to capacity crowds at iconic venues such as The 100 Club, The Borderline, The Sage, and Rock City for many years. And they’ve also enthusiastically supported artists like The Kris Barras Band, Wille and the Bandits, Alabama 3, and The Temperance Movement.
The band are currently working with dedication on their sophomore album, following their 2 EPs and debut album ‘Face to Face’.
Guitarist and lead vocalist Ben Edwards explains, “Pretty much since we finished our headline tour, we’ve just been in the studio with our new material, getting it recorded ready for our second album…..”
It’s always fun being in the studio and getting to be creative and stretch ourselves at the same time. We feel so privileged that we even get to record a second album and can’t wait to show our fans what we’ve been working on…”
