DeWolff are back and returning to your stereo this winter, but this time they strip down and go COMPACT! No drum kit, no Hammond and no guitar amps, as they present to you, the Tascam Tapes. Written, performed and recorded on the road for less than 50 euros, but sounding like a million bucks! Adjust your ears, as its coming 10th January 2020 via Mascot Records. Today the band release their second single 'Blood Meridian I' with a official video where they display their new stage outfits.

Talking about the new single singer/guitarist Pablo van de Poel says: "The riff for ‘Blood Meridian I’ was written on the first day of the French tour, but the Tascam recorder had broken down. “One of the belts had broken and eventually we replaced it with an elastic rubber band. Just so you know: that’s an acoustic guitar rippin’ through your speakers! The verse was written in the van somewhere in Germany. The lyrics are inspired by a Cormac McCarthy book of the same name, about a group of low life outlaws on a vicious killing spree hunting down Native Americans. Not even ghosts will survive to tell the tales of this band.”

“The plan for the video was conceived on the day it was shot: we were shooting a promo shoot with Satellite June in front of our amazing new backdrop by Realfunwow when we figured this setting would make a great music video! Satellite June shot it and Pablo edited it and here it is for y’all to see!”

For their 7th ‘studio’ album, their studio was essentially packed into a suitcase. ‘Tascam Tapes’ was recorded on a Tascam Porta Two, a four track cassette recorder from the 1980’s. The only equipment they used was a sampler with some rare soul and funk sampled drum beats loaded in by Luka, a battery powered synthesizer and a guitar, all plugged directly into the recorder.

Pablo explains, “On the very first day of the tour the Tascam broke down. Actually it broke down all the time, but our sound tech De Das was able to fix it every time using whatever material was at hand (duct tape, rubber bands, toothpicks etc). We even bought a second Tascam in Spain, but its condition was even worse so we just used it for parts and stuck to our original one that I bought 10 years ago for 50 bucks.”

So, there you have it. No ordinary album, but then this is no ordinary band. Free-spirited and freewheeling, those teenagers that formed a band from The Netherlands deep south have blazed a trail across Europe, released 6 previous studio albums (5 of which hit the Dutch Top 20), have played shows with the likes of The Black Keys, Blues Pills, Wolf People, Wolfmother and Deep Purple. They’ve picked up fans in Seasick Steve, who once woke up backstage at a festival to hear them play, thinking he heard the Allman Brothers playing from 1972 and Roger Glover has openly declared his love for the band AND, to top that off they picked up a Dutch Edison Award (The Netherlands version of The Grammy's) in February 2019 for ‘Best Rock Album.’

Recorded in hotels, motels, a backstage or two and by the side of the road. This is DeWolff like you've never heard them before!
