We may have missed this video back when it came out back in October, but we're going to use it to remind you that Sweden's The Boatsmen are about to release a new album Friday. "Blame It On Me" is just pure rock and roll. It's fast, and loud, and heavy, but it's also groovy as all hell. It's rock with heavy elements of punk and proto-punk. As with all things from The Boatsmen, there is absolutely zero pretention here. Even the killer guitar solo is so killer because it's impossibly sloppy. I usually hate just copying a band description from a press release, but this one is perfect: "The Boatsmen were formed when all other great rock n roll bands quit or just stopped being good." How can you resist that?
You can watch the video for "Blame It On Me" below. The Boatsmen vs The Boatsmen will be out April 23 on Spaghetty Town Records in the US and Ghost Highway Recordings in Europe. You can order your copy here. For more on The Boatsmen, check them out on Facebook.
