Biters’ frontman Tuk has revealed how T Rex, Queen and Slade inspired hot new tune Stone Cold Love – after the Atlanta rockers released stream of their brand new glam-soaked song.
The track is culled from latest album The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be – due for release via Earache Records on May 19.
And Tuk explained: “I sat down with my buddy Scott (Stevens) to write a tune. We sat for hours trying to come up with something that felt perfect but were hitting a dead end.
“We said ‘fuck it’ and went to his local hang out, ate some cornbread, drank a few beers and talked about music.
“We spoke about T Rex, Queen and Slade, shit like that, how cool those big drum grooves were.
“Right then a light bulb went off and we headed back to studio with a fresh start and within hours finished writing the song, demoed it and tracked lead vocals!
“I was so fucking delirious I couldn’t tell if it was good or not. A few weeks later, Scott sent me the finished demo while I was on tour in Kansas.
“I remember cranking it in the van outside of this fake old wild west town and thinking ‘Goddamn, this is so good!’”
