FASTER PUSSYCAT‘s cover version of the JOHNNY THUNDERS & THE HEARTBREAKERS song “Pirate Love” can be streamed below. The track is the B-side of the band’s new single, “NOLA”, which will be released on May 21 in two formats: digital and a seven-inch vinyl single. The vinyl will be available exclusively via the band’s web site, www.fasterpussycat.com.
For years, FASTER PUSSYCAT‘s aggressive touring schedule made it difficult for the band to work on new material. So when the COVID-19 pandemic hit and there were no live shows for the foreseeable future, the group immediately shifted gears and entered the studio.
“NOLA” is a song inspired by the fabulous city of New Orleans, a city that fronman Taime Downe holds dear to his heart.
When the band started working on making new music for a release, “NOLA” was the obvious choice to lead with. Downe and guitarist Sam Bam Koltun began working together in the studio, tracking guitars on what would be the first new song from the band since 2006’s “The Power And The Glory Hole”.
The B-side of the single is “Pirate Love”, which was goes back to FASTER PUSSYCAT‘s club days, also Inspired by the New Orleans theme, as Thunders passed away in New Orleans in 1991, and has had a major influence on Downe and the whole band.
To celebrate the release, FASTER PUSSYCAT and ENUFF Z’NUFF are pairing up and coming “Straight Outta Quarantine” throughout North America, showing all the warts, scars and tattoos that only a package like this can, which have only grown deeper over the past year.
Featuring the MTV smash hits “House Of Pain”, “New Thing”, “Bathroom Wall” and “Fly High Michelle”, the “Straight Outta Quarantine” tour — which has been booked and re-booked with careful consideration of each venue’s COVID-19 regulations and the safety of all involved — is without question going to be one of the most long-overdue rock and roll parties of our lifetime.
