Sam Coffey & The Iron Lungs have taken to our recurring live from home series, where they delivered a groovy performance of “Back With The Gang” from their new album, Real One.
The amazing performance sees Coffey beneath some psychedelic, galaxy-like editing, with an Elvis Presley guitar in hand. The “vibey” version of the track is to fill the void of the inevitable live performances that would have ensued with the release of their new album Real One today.
“‘Back With The Gang’ is our way of saying ‘WE’RE BACK! AND WE’VE STILL GOT GUITARS,'” Coffey explained upon the track’s release. “We got really into junkshop glam while recording this, particularly bands like Laurice, The Equals, Slade, and Sweet. Before taking this to the studio, we tested out at shows at about half speed. We loved the song but the slow pace and high register was burning us and the people at the show out. Enter our great producer Kevin Ratterman to fix the problem! He told us to turn up the BPM and detuned the song to make it feel heavier.”
