Bloody Beetroots Is Back With a New Single and North American Tour

Hold on to your hats ladies and gentlemen. Bloody Beetroots is back with a new single and North American tour. The new track, aptly titled “Saint Bass City Rockers” is everything you ever wanted in a post-apocalyptic rock anthem but were never delivered in a Mad Max film. Listen below:

The conversation we had in the office about this song ranged from a desire to get rowdy and break shit to air guitar riffing with a leg up on the filing cabinet because this song combines everything that a stadium-wrecking, police-calling, neighbor-offending anthem needs to have. It’s loud. It’s dirty. It’s electronic and mesmerizing while still being something you can rock out and head-bang to.

Whether it was the creation of a group of misfits in the middle of the desert surrounded by rat rods and weapons of destruction playing instruments that spewed fire out of the ends is irrelevant, this song absolutely deserves to be on the Mad Max: Fury Road soundtrack and, more importantly, the Summer Jam playlist you’ve spent the past few months trying to build.

Bloody Beetroots–aka Robert Rifo aka Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo–had this to say about the track: “A long voyage, an electronic mantra that is articulated with different melodies, touching various spots around the world, from California, India, Norway and England. I imagined this voyage as I wrote the song.” It’s one helluva voyage, that’s for sure.
