THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Polish psychedelic doom trio Weird Tales thicken the plot of their tale with their EP Y’all Motherfuckers Forgot ‘Bout Good Ol’ Son Of A Bitchin’ Blues. Which, like everything else from this twisted trio, dares to go far outside the confines of what you would expect from a doom album.

With this record, Weird Tales pay homage to the true founding fathers. Where it all began, the kings of blues! Without blues, there is no rock, without rock there is no doom metal, and without doom metal, well, let’s not even speculate where Weird Tales would be. The concept of this album – pass the blues through the Weird Tales prism, twisting and bending it until it’s barely recognizable. Catch the essence of each track, wrap it with our heavy riffs and extrapolate. The result? The heaviest blues album ever put forth!

Weird Tales add: “How we are sick of covers! It’s always the same, note by note covers, slowed down, tuned down — the DOOM covers. How we are bored by it! The only acceptable form of cover — is an abstract one. A new self-contained, original piece of music. Whole new riffs and arrangements, and still, it is a cover. It’s bound to the original with its intention and message. The cover that is a rethinking of the original becoming it’s evolution. With this EP we’re retelling with our own language the killer blues of four men. Lonnie Johnson, Skip James, Blind Willie Johnson, Muddy Waters are the four motherfuckers who knew what this was all about, done way before you were born.

We wandered through a graveyard of the blues in search of inspiration. Tried to summon its spirit in blasphemous rituals. We dug up his rotten parts and sewed them together according to the custom of Dr. Frankenstein. We created a monstrous, soulless creature and woven our own demons into it to bring it back to life … It is our vision of what is the most important in this blues. Our blues in 2020.”
