As the Norwegian hard rockers Gluecifer decided to call it quits in 2005, songwriter and guitarplayer Captain Poon quickly announced he´d be back with a new band. Bloodlights, a name he developed from some peculiar “on the road blackouts” during endless touring with Gluecifer, released their self titled debut early 2008.
With his new band, the Captain took the step into the centre of the stage as both lead singer and guitar player. Founding member and guitarist Howie B., drummer Woody Lee, and bassplayer Chis Banjo are now making the Bloodlights engine rock more steady than ever.
In May 2017 Bloodlights released their fourth album «Pulling No Punches». The album has gotten amazing reviews and has put Bloodlights on the rock´n´roll map for real.
Four records, a mini-LP, and a handful of 7inches should leave no doubt that this band is in it for all the right reasons, and Bloodlights sure is rock´n´roll band to rely upon.
Captain Poon puts it this way: «I never had any masterplan on anything I´ve done so far. If people like what I do it´s great, and it´s nothing I can appreciate more than the devoted people I meet . That being said it´s never been an easy ride playing in a rock´n´roll band. If you´re in it for anything else but the love of music you´d probably be disappointed.»
Bloodlights are psyched to hit the road to support their brand new release. A string of Spanish dates are in the pipeline, including a show at the amazing Azkena Rock Festival, where they share the bill with bands such as The Cult, The Hellacopters, Cheap Trick and Graveyard.
In August they´ll appear at the Turbojugend Welttage along with their hometown buddies, Turbonegro.
