Blues Pills have postponed the release of upcoming album Holy Moly! indefinitely. The album was due to arrive via Nuclear Blast on June 19.

"It’s with a heavy heart that we must tell you that our new album Holy Moly! must be postponed" say the band. "Due to the situation with COVID-19 it’s impossible for us to go on with this album release according to plan. 

"Festival after festival is getting canceled, borders are closed and we feel we cannot go on with this release to make it the best. We put so much into this, over a year of hard work in our own studio and we miss you fans out there so much. This situation breaks our hearts, we were excited to share this with you. The album, the festivals, the upcoming tours."

They continue, "We hope to have more information during the next week. But the album will be released, we’re just pushing the release date and we’re still thinking if we should go on releasing singles but over a longer time. Or take a break and continue the release when we decided when the album will be released. 

"We want to share this with you so bad, and we will. But now the most important is to take care of each other. Stay strong, stay healthy. Support bands and artists you like, keep the rock rolling. We love you."

The band originally announced the follow-up to 2016’s Lady In Gold in March, and shared a video for first single Proud Woman. They followed this with the release of Low Road earlier this month. 

Pre-orders are still available from Nuclear Blast and RecordStore.
