Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres have today announced details of their self titled debut album, released Friday 26th April via Strap Originals/Cargo Records.
With the announcement of a UK wide tour and debut single ‘Who’s Been Having You Over,’ momentum has gathered in recent weeks. Alongside Peter, the outfit consist of Miggles (bass), Miki Beavis (violin), Katia DeVidas (Piano/keyboards), Jack Jones (lead guitar) and Rafa (drums). An ecclectic mix of musicians, the Puta Madres represent all corners of the world.
The debut album Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres was recorded live in Étretat Normandy. The Northern French town is of poignant significance to the band, the album recorded live in a family home. It captures the essence and spirit of the Puta Madres.
Described as an intimate portrait of love, loss, happiness and tragedy, it gives true insight into the lyrical prowess of Peter Doherty. Eleven tracks, all road tested, capture this. Detail comes as Doherty sets off on a sold out UK tour of the UK. The ‘Who’s Been Having You Over’ Tour kicks off in February. It leads the band to cities such as York, Derby, Swindon and Swansea.
‘Who’s Been Having You Over’ is out now, both powerful in terms of lyrics and complexity. It’s opening is dark, its chorus emphatic. What still remains after numerous decades in the public eye is raw genius, perfectly captures in this album.
Peter Doherty is back and better than ever. The Puta Madres are truly representative of his musical spirit. They are set for an impressive 2019!
