The Bloodstained Angels release a self-titled debut album, to stream or download.

Recorded over the past 12 months at Chem19 Studios in Blantyre with Jamie Savage, the 13-track long-player is the work of James Nixon – a singer songwriter originally from Cambuslang – and an old 70s Hummingbird lawsuit guitar.

Nixon cites Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Nebraska’ as inspiration for the release – now exiled in Aberdeenshire, he is, he says, “searching for his own Nebraska”.

The album – containing previous singles ‘Hearts of Stone’ and ‘A Lot In Common‘ – is, he continues, also influenced by Ryan Adams ‘Heartbreaker’. “The songs cut back and forth through a love affair from unrequited feelings, to falling like a stone for someone, to jealously, fear, break-up and regret.”
