Alive and Kickin' is proud to announce the release of the 2nd MEDICINE BALL CARAVAN album 'Keep Goin' Til the Next Stop' due in June 7, 2016

6 years after Medicine Ball Caravan’s split their unreleased 2nd album ‘Keep Goin’ Til the Next Stop’ is finally available via Alive and Kickin’.


Recorded in June 2009 in Paris, FRANCE before that Jay, (drums) went back to the USA and despite the fact that Matt (vocals, bass) and Rod (guitar) keep going with the band, they ultimately call it quits several months later leaving the album unfinished. But recently Matt decided to complete it with the help of a few friends performing harp, keyboards and percussion on several songs. One of these guest musicians, Danny Fury, is well known by the Rock music lovers since he’s a former member of The Lords of the New Church, Kill City Dragons, Vain and currently playing in Tango Pirates.


The album is featuring 8 songs, including 7 originals and live gigs favorites and a cover of Betty Davis classic ‘If I’m in Luck I Might Get Picked Up’. True to their influences and their love of the 70s hard rock, the band is delivering the goods with this solid and diverse posthumous record.


Formed in Paris, FRANCE in 2007, Medicine Ball Caravan have released their first album ‘Crossing the Seas ...Spreading the Sins’ in 2008 on Longfellow Deeds records (Thunder Express, Paperback Freud, Dollhouse, Rite, Honcho, Baby Woodrose...). Also available for the first time in Digital format on platforms such as iTunes, Spotify, Deezer, Shazam, Amazon...

 

 

 

 

 

6 ans après le split du groupe, le second album de Medicine Ball Caravan, “Keep Goin’ Til the Next Stop” est enfin disponible via Alive and Kickin’.

Enregistré en juin 2009 à Paris, FRANCE avant le retour aux USA de Jay (batterie), et bien que Matt (chant, basse) et Rod (guitare) ont continué le groupe, ils finissent par se séparer quelques mois plus tard, laissant l’album en suspend. Mais récemment Matt a décidé de finaliser celui-ci avec l’aide d’amis musiciens pour y ajouter de l’harmonica, des claviers et des percussions sur certains titres. L’un de ses invités n’est autre que Danny Fury, bien connu des fans de Rock grâce à son passé dans des groupes tels que The Lords of the New Church, Kill City Dragons, Vain et actuellement à la tête de Tango Pirates.

L’album contient 8 chansons dont 7 titres originaux, qui furent de la playlist de la plupart de leurs concerts, et une reprise du classique de Betty Davis “If I’m in Luck I Might Get Picked Up”.
Fidèles à leurs influences et leur amour pour le hard rock des années 70, le groupe livre ici, à titre posthume, un enregistrement riche et efficace qi tient ses promesses.

Formé à Paris, FRANCE en 2007, Medicine Ball Caravan a sortit son premier album “Crossing the Seas ...Spreading the Sins” en 2008 sur Longfellow Deeds records (Thunder Express, Paperback Freud, Dollhouse, Rite, Honcho, Baby Woodrose...).
