For rock’n’roll lovers…
On March 6th,Tuk Smith released “Lookin’ For Love, Ready For War ”, the first song written for the eponymous album out later this year via Better Noise Music.
Tuk described his music as “ a caveman riff, and soaring hook of pure rock and roll. It’s not a love song, it’s a life song. It’s what I’ve seen, what I’ve felt, and what I have experienced. This is about the self-realization that, when you wanted to make the easy choice you end up having to make the hard choice. It is my own personal anthem”
In the video for the track, Tuk says “We shot the whole video in one day… At 10 AM I was putting up chicken wire for the stage and by 3 PM I was lip syncing. it was a total hands-on experience from top to bottom. At one point I got worried that people were getting a bit rowdy and could really get hurt. I know several people definitely walked out of there with some bruises and cuts, but in the end, it made for a great video!”
For nine years, as the front man for the Atlanta rock band Biters, Tuk has expanded the reaches of his musical vision into a debut album that unifies multiple musical styles and showcases the versatility of his songwriting. From instantly infectious anthems to intricately arranged rockers and Americana-tinged ballads, “Lookin’ For Love, Ready For War” favors dedication over debauchery. It’s a musical homecoming for Smith, one that rewards devotion and battle scars with an amazing collection of songs.
To see and listen this talent for an amazing moment…
