Blues Pills have released a trailer for their upcoming album Lady In Gold.

The follow-up to their 2014 self-titled debut will launch on August 5 via Nuclear Blast.

Singer Elin Larsson said of the album title: “Lady Gold is a character who symbolises death. We wanted a twist on the typical stereotype of death being the grim reaper. So instead we made her a lady in gold.”

Last month, the band revealed the cover art for the record and announced a UK and Ireland tour, which gets under way in November. Prior to those shows, Blues Pills have a number of European dates scheduled, kicking off in Norway on June 23.
