PREMIERE: Not Blood Paint elude genre classification with new LP, ‘Believing Is Believing’

not blood paint

Brooklyn quartet Not Blood Paint traverse the entire spectrum of the rock genre (and parts of other genres as well) on their upcoming full-length, Believing Is Believing. As one of the most dynamic releases of the year, the record offers bluesy soul, headbang-inducing heaviness, soaring doom, groove, epic theatrics, and virtually every imaginable niche in between. Mirroring the exuberance and thematic variety of the band’s live show, Believing Is Believing has it all, and we have all 10 of its tracks for you to stream below. Lucky you!

Attempting to describe some of the ideas behind their newest release, Not Blood Paint explains:

“‘Believing Is Believing’ is not a concept record and these songs are not ‘message songs’—they’re process songs, time traveling feeling vehicles. This music was written to be fully experiential, much like our live shows. Each song is a new suit to try on when venturing out into the world, capable of shifting drastically in feel depending on listening context. All in all, we hope these songs provide both the instantly recognizable and the genuinely surprising.”

Not Blood Paint’s Believing Is Believing will be officially released this Friday, June 17. Pre-orders are available through Bandcamp.
