The London Souls are thrilled to announce the release of their new album Here Come The Girls on January 8. The follow up to their acclaimed self-titled debut that caught the attention of Rolling Stone, MTV, USA Today and Q104.3 for its raw live feel and which The Wall Street Journal praised for its “authority and intuition,” Here Come The Girls is the next step for a creative songwriting duo who is meticulous about the sound of rock n roll.

Following the recording of Here Come The Girls in early 2012 at The Bunker Studio in Brooklyn, lead singer / guitarist / songwriter Tash Neal was a victim of a serious hit and run accident when his NYC cab was struck by a BMW drag racing down Broadway. When he arrived at the hospital – unresponsive and near death – doctors immediately performed brain surgery to treat a subdural hematoma. After a medically induced coma and several surgeries, Tash’s progress has been nothing short of a miracle. Tash is now back rehearsing with the band and ready for the release of Here Come The Girls!
Here Come The Girls reflects the inspired decisions of Tash and drummer / songwriter / singer Chris St. Hilaire made in taking the album in a new direction. By keeping the arrangements simultaneously loose and assured their soulful vocals became the perfect vehicle for this new collection of songs.
From the driving guitars, drums and harmonies on “City Of Light,” to the pop craftsmanship of “Bobby James,” the intimate “Isabel” and the swing of “Valerie,” “Here Come The Girls” sees The London Souls meld a hybrid of styles and showcase a myriad of tones to create a classic record with timeless appeal.
Captivating concertgoers with an awe-inspiring live show, The London Souls have shared the stage with The Roots, The Black Crowes and Big Boi (Outkast), along with selling out national venues like The Bowery Ballroom in NYC. The band has also made fans with stage-stealing performances at SXSW, Mountain Jam and Telluride Blues & Brews. Plus the band’s music has been heard on VH1, HBO, CBS and a worldwide commercial for UGG’s men’s boots.
