2013 Tour, New Single and Album Announcement!

Blues is the teacher. Punk is the preacher. The BellRays are both! It's all about emotion and energy, experience and raw talent, spirit and intellect with The BellRays and exciting things happen when all these things collide. So look out as Australian audiences are set to witness all the above things when The BellRays return this June for a 5-date tour of our capital cities.

To co-incide with the upcoming Australian Tour, The BellRays will release their album 'Black Lightning', a stunning mix of high octane garage rock, laced with soulful vocals. Sultan Sounds will release the first single 'On Top' single Friday 19th April 2013 with the release of the album on not far behind Friday 17th May 2013.

In 1991, The BellRays began with Bob and Lisa (Lisa was the powerful voice behind Basement Jaxx hit 'Good Luck'). They wanted to play music and they wanted it to feel good. They wanted people to WANT to get up, to NEED to get up and check out what was going on. So they took everything they knew about; the Beatles, Stevie Wonder, the Who, the Ramones, Billie Holiday, Lou Rawls, Hank Williams, the DB's, Jimmy Reed, Led Zeppelin (to name a very few) and pressed it into service.

It was never about coming up with a 'sound', or fitting in with a scene. It was about the energy that made all that music so irresistible. It was the history BEFORE Led Zeppelin that led them to that point. The Beatles thought they were playing R&B. It just came out like 'Rubber Soul'. The Ramones were trying to be Del Shannon or Neil Sedaka and out came 'Rocket to Russia'.

With The BellRays there was no conscious effort to 'combine' rock and soul because they didn't see them as divided in the first place. Blues was teaching. Punk was preaching and The BellRays were always listening! So catch their explosive live show this June.
