Soulful, grooving, thought-provoking blues rockers, Xander and the Peace Pirates today release the title track of their eagrly anticipated new 10-track album ‘Order Out of Chaos’ that’s already been wowing reviewers and earning airplay and praise (due for release on 6th May and available for pre-order).
Classic Rock called the band’s previous single ‘We Cry’ “…a lush, beautifully moody swirl of bluesy soul, with a cascade of Fleetwood Mac fairydust. 70s sounds applied to contemporary sentiments,” and award the band winners of Louder Tracks of the Week.
Like ‘We Cry’ ‘Order Out of Chaos’ has a wonderful, musical allure that’s woven with smart, sincere, meaningful lyrics.
The band explain “’Order Out of Chaos’ tries to show that we give our collective power away to false beliefs. One — often strongly held — delusion is that those in power have real power and control over anyone. They don’t, but thanks to that conviction we still give our power away.
“This song is about how many in positions of power will wield that ‘power’ to manipulate the masses, merely to serve their own personal agendas — not the whole. All such agendas are born out of a need to become more and have more: false needs and hungers that are never fulfilled.
Opening with a strong guitar hook, and Xander’s lead vocals, which sound more beguiling than a male siren, the infectious melody is subtly foot tapping whilst the combo of conviction, soaring vocals, moving lyrics and virtuoso musicality in the chorus may well give you goosebumps. You’ve been warned!
ERB Magazine awarded the album 5/5 “The vocals are sublime, the musicianship is world class and there is not a single track on this album that I can bear to skip. By far the best album l think l will hear all year.”
