New Candys (Italy)

Venice, Italy based alternative rock band New Candys announce their upcoming LP Bleeding Magenta due out in October 2017 via Fuzz Club Records. NewCandys formed in 2008 and gained buzz through playing European festivals like The Secret Garden Party and Liverpool Psych Fest 2016. They recently landed a major sync for their song "Aphrodite In Leather" on SHOWTIME's hit show Shameless. New Candys have shared the stage with rock notables like The Warlocks, Dead Skeletons, The Vaccines, Slowdive and more.

Today New Noise Magazine premieres the lead single "Excess" stating, "QUOTE FROM NEW NOISE." "Excess" is a goodbye song, it's about how intense relationships can be, and i's okay to say goodbye if it's too much to handle. The video has cinematographic odes to Nicolas Winding Refn and Dario Argento. This is the first offering from the upcoming LP, and gives a good sample of what to expect on the full record. Bleeding Magenta was written with a vinyl release in mind. The band says, "We played with the restricted amount of time allowed by one side at 33 RPM: 24 minutes. This forced us to be focused, to slim down our compositions and give space to the best and essential music only." 

The four piece is made up of Fernando Nuti (vocals, guitar, sitar), Diego Menegaldo (guitar, vocals), Stefano Bidoggia (bass, organ) and Dario Lucchesi (drums, percussion).  New Candys  produced the record by themselves, recording it for the first time close to their home at Fox Studio in Venice with Andrea Volpato. Drums were recorded at Alpha Department Studios in Bologna by Pierluigi Ballarin, who worked with the band on previous records. The record was mastered by Grammy Award winner Giovanni Versari at La Maestà Mastering, and it will be available on all digital platforms and via vinyl release in October 2017.

"it's a psychedelic power trip of an album that demands your attention from its opening bars."
