Blood Red Shoes shares details about ‘Ghosts on Tape’

Blood Red Shoes have announced details of their sixth album, Ghosts on Tape. It is released on Velveteen Records on Friday 14th January 2022. Additionally, they have shared Morbid Fascination, the first track to be taken from the album.

After years spent living on opposite sides of the Atlantic world events threw Laura Mary Carter and Steven Ansell of Blood Red Shoes back together into what has become the most fruitful era of their 17 years together.

“It’s been a long time since we both lived in the same city”, explains Steven. “I mean we actually wrote this album in LA at Laura’s place, then came to the UK to record it…and then everything went nuts”.

Having worked together on Laura–Mary’s forthcoming solo mini-album Town Called Nothing and restless from the lack of touring, the duo started jamming out in rehearsal rooms, which led to the light-speed writing, recording, and release of the impossibly-titled Ø EP in the summer of 2021.

And that brings us back to Ghost On Tape. It appears that like David Lynch’s The Lost Highway, nothing is linear in the world of Blood Red Shoes. Written and recorded before their most recent EP, GHOSTS ON TAPE is a huge jump into new terrain for the band. Musically and emotionally their most mature work, it is a complex, imaginative, and very gothic development on their sound. Musically, it leaves almost no trace of their former selves.

Finally, the band has also announced a run of UK dates for early 2022. The full list of dates is as follows:
