ARTIST DIRECT PREMIERES NEW VIDEO FROM DANCE HALL PIMPS FOR THEIR VERSION OF SORROW
The Dance Hall Pimps emerged from the LA underground cabaret scene in 2010 and almost immediately became something of a cult favorite, especially along the Sunset Strip where they hosted a monthly residency “The Dance Hall Pimps Parlour Show” at On the Rox, they were quickly signed to Lakeshore records and released their debut LP, Beast for Love but it’s with their second studio LP, The Dead Don't Walk on Growling Moon Records and out on November 5th the band really comes to life.
Thematically, the subject matter of the new album explores a range of emotions. They tell tales of true love, heartbreak and triumph and in keeping up their tradition of pimped-out covers, they tackled David Bowie's famous cover of Sorrow (originally by The McCoys). "With covers, we always like to do something new," RJ says, “so we changed Sorrow to a minor key and slowed it down.” The stars aligned for the Dance Hall Pimps—their record release coincidently coincides with the 40th anniversary of Bowie’s release of Sorrow on the Pin Ups album.
The Dance Hall Pimps have found a way to mix genres and create a sound that is all their own but you’re invited to the party so get ready to sing along and be brought to your feet.
