CHANTEL MCGREGOR: Announces New Album “Lose Control” Set for October Release

Guitarist and singer-songwriter Chantel McGregor announced last week that her new album Lose Control will be released on Friday, 9th October 2015. It will be out via an independent label Tis Rock Music and it will be her first album since the critically acclaimed debut Like No Other (2011).

Chantal McGregor by Steve Howdle

According to a press release, McGregor’s new album represents “her gradual transition from conventional blues to a harder, bigger and bolder rock sound with progressive influences”. She comments:

I’ve always been interested in the dark side of Southern Gothic literature, artwork and media. I wanted to create an album that reflected the imagery and themes of that genre. I drew inspiration from the TV shows True Detective and True Blood and studied the literary works of Tennessee Williams, Carson Mullers and Mark Twain. I also surrounded myself with imagery from artists and photographers such as Walker Evans and Clarence John Laughlin, all to immerse myself in the sinister, dark world of depravation, magic and voodoo, writing most of the songs from the perspective of the disturbed flawed characters.

Check out a preview of her upcoming album Lose Control below.

Track listing:
1. Take The Power
2. Your Fever
3. Burn Your Anger
4. Anaesthetize
5. Southern Belle
6. Lose Control
7. Home
8. Killing Time
9. Eternal Dream
10. Walk On Land

About Dom (1280 Articles)
I started this website in 2011 because I always had a burning passion of sharing music and keeping people informed about what's going on in the metal and rock worlds. If I am not sitting in a dark room in front of a computer, listening to some obscure music (or Whitesnake), then I am usually found at a concert or a festival interviewing bands (or drinking beer).
