Newport Electric: Album Release Party

London’s Newport Electric formed in 2014 and released their debut album “So It Goes” the following year to excellent reviews.

In 2018 they released their follow up “Thin Wild Mercury” culminating in a fantastic vinyl release show right here at Aeolian Hall.  This album garnered further attention and was greeted with even more positive reviews from Europe and the U.S., along with a 2019 FCLMA award for “Rock Band  of The Year”.

After a pandemic-related delay they are extremely excited to announce their new album “Discord And Harmony” set for release at this show right here at the Hall. The album will again be available in vinyl, cd or digital formats.

The album blasts right out of the gate with an updated version of a John Lee Hooker song called “Boom!”.  Lead singer John Couture explains: “we were working on this new song, but something just wasn’t quite right.  It was good but it wasn’t perfect…it needed something.  So we parked it until we stumbled upon the idea that the chorus for John Lee Hooker’s song “Boom Boom” would fit perfectly.  John Lee has been a big musical hero of mine for many years so I thought it was a perfect way to marry our music with his.  Hopefully anyone who enjoys our song will go seek out John Lee’s work as well”.

The album continues with high energy songs throughout the first side.  A fan favourite is “Devil’s Bargain”, a song inspired by a terrorist attack that has become all too familiar these days.  The lyrics are chilling at times: “Everybody is a time bomb/watch the seconds tick away…”.

Flip over the record and side two hits with a fantastic acoustic riff that builds up to a full band crescendo in a standout track called “I’m Alive”.
