FREE Greg Loftus EP download!

In Albums, Artists on October 29, 2009 at 10:59 pm

Our small little label used to be even smaller. The initial release from BIG BULLET RECORDS was actually a re-release of sorts—we helped Massachusetts singer-songwriter Greg Loftus push his fantastic album No Taking Prisoners Tonight and did our best to make folks pay attention to it.

Since then both BIG BULLET RECORDS and Greg Loftus have come a long way. Greg had a brief, yet productive stint last year with a full-band behind him, which he called Splinters & Sparrows. The gang recorded a phenomenal full-length (which you can read a full review of here) before disbanding somewhat. We were so happy with the quality of these songs that we simply cannot allow them to slip beneath the radar. Some of them have been up on Greg’s Myspace for a while now, and five choice cuts were assembled into a tour EP entitled Heathens In Disguise that could be picked up at Greg’s live shows. Now BIG BULLET RECORDS and Greg Loftus would like for you to have that EP and we don’t want you to pay a dime for it. Simply click the album cover below and you will be directed to your free download of Heathens In Disguise by Greg Loftus. Enjoy.

Spilling your heart out countless nights on the road certainly takes its toll, and Greg Loftus knows this all too well. Since his solo debut No Taking Prisoners Tonight, Loftus has been playing the East Coast at a frenetic pace, picking up inspiration for new songs every step of the way. Whereas his previous album captures a headstrong, yet emotionally conscious young Loftus, Heathens In Disguise finds the songwriter grappling with maturity and weightier issues: “Three a.m. again and it might be enough/I know of a bed with my name on it/Yeah I’ve got those friends that keep fucking up/But the blood’s never on their hands/So I lay my head and fall back to sleep again.”

Don’t worry though, Loftus can never fully abandon his rowdy beginnings, and spots of it still shine through brilliantly here. Loftus has just grown to accept that for every reckless, party-filled night on the road there is an equally quiet and somewhat lonesome one, and that is something that we all have to learn to face in due time. Let’s just hope we can all relay the story as articulate and meaningful as Greg has.
