Rusty Nail-Bitter Ale,Bitter Heart-promo album

Bitter Ale, Bitter Heart is the new album from Rusty Nail, is all about feelings and one of the best albums from the St. Louis band. They are play a celtic-folk with a little bit of punk influences and a lot of drinks. The album is a personal and sad one but in the same time they have the sound of hope and optimism.

The album has 11 tracks, just perfect to listen with a cold rum on the rocks, is a honest album and you can see that the guys invested a lot of feelings in it. About the band i can tell you that they are playing togheter for more than 10 years already and if you like Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, Tossers, The Pogues than for sure you need to give them credit.

Also this album drive me close to Speed Of Darkness, the album from 2011 of Flogging Molly. Is an album that will trasport you somewhere where is cold but as well will give you enough strength to move on with a smile. Just great.

Mandolin,violin,banjo,accordion,irish whistle,flute,drums,bass,guitar,feelings,friendship,optimism and all the friends with a rum togheter.

Thanks to Chad and Rusty Nail

Interview with Tobin (610/Flatfoot 56)-exclusive

Mirceone (MPTY ZINE):Hi Tobin, this is Mircea from mpty zine. How things are with you in the new 2015?

Tobin (610/Flatfoot 56):Things have been going really well.

First of all congrats for the 610 project.i had listen to it and it has took me far away somewhere in my childhood:),simple things,deep and nice. What is the story behind this project?

I have always loved songs and music that takes me to places that are far off and full of memories. The mindset behind this record was to return to a style of music from my early days of learning music with my family. Bluegrass and folk was music that was always around our house and the art of good story telling was a big part of my attraction to these styles.
This album also documents a lot of the feelings and mindsets that I have faced over the last few years. Its been a really hard past few years. Sometimes when your going through rough times, you just need to get it out. This album was key to helping me flesh through what I was feeling, God’s grace, and my own fears and hurts.

It is different than your Flatfoot 56 and speaking of Flatfoot 56, you have some news to share?:)

We are looking to be doing a short European tour in oct. of this year. We are excited to be getting back. We have been talking about doing some more writing as well to see what comes out.

The Humble Beginnings of a Roving Soul was recorded DIY in your bedroom and this is a big deal, how you will promote? a upcoming tour or something?

The album was actually recorded in an attic area of the house I live in. We have a studio set up there. It’s a very warm space with a very comfortable feel. Its a great place to create. We have been promoting through playing shows and trying to be active on our social media outlets. We have a tour scheduled for Europe in Sept and october that we are really excited about. There are so many people we are looking forward to seeing again. We just released a new video for our song „Backpack” which looks amazing and gives people and idea of what the band is like. .
1. 6'10 Bandfoto

Please make me a top 10 with your favorite bands.

I am kind of a strange guy in what i like but here it goes.
I love: Johnny cash, Mississippi John Hurt, Metric, Mewithoutyou, Cock Sparer, Leatherface, the Pogues, Murder by Death, Pete Seager, Bishops Green (Honorable mentions- Brick Assassin, Cro-mags, andrew W.K)

Like you said this album takes you to a journey to childhood,how important are those little simple things nowdays with this speed and these trends?

I think folk music and story telling styles of music are extremely important because they remind us of who we are and where we came from. In this cray world of fast paced technology i think people are getting tired and stressed out. We are loosing track of who we are as people groups and of what we are and cultures. I think that people are returning to folk and simpler music to rediscover that simpler time and pace of life that we as humans were meant to live at. We want music and culture to mean something more then just consumerism and entertainment. We want music that tells us who we are and speaks to the deepest parts of our human struggles.

Name 5 things that you will take with you to a journey.

1. A Bible 2. a note pad 3. My hat 4. my guitar 5. a voice recorder.

Always coming back home to…Chicago:) how’s Chicago underground scene?

Chicago is a great music town. The scene has been strong for a long time. This being said it is always changing and there are always new faces. Its a place that people want to be in. One thing I love is that each neighborhood has its own group of show spaces and punk kids. They all offer a different taste to an already vibrant place.

Some words for our zine?

Never stop loving music and never stop learning about new bands. I love how Europeans research their music. I love how they care and invest in their favorite bands. You guys are a huge part of why we still play.

Thanks Tobin so much for your time and please feel free to add anything.Where people can listen to 610 online? buy the album…

You can find the album on ITUNES, Our website at http://www.610band.com, in stores throughout europe.

thanks to Tobin,Karin and Felix (Flix Records)
