In every life, there are moments of revelation. Some are tragic, like near death experiences or divorce. Others are joyous, such as birth, new love or a career breakthrough. But both kinds leave indelible stamps on the individuals experiencing them.
For gold-selling Memphis turbo-rockers Saliva, the past couple years of their decade-long career have brought an ocean swell of such change. One or more members have had children, stopped drinking, ended longterm relationships, gotten married and/or left the group, and each instance has been accompanied by a new sense of clarity.
As a result, Saliva's fifth album Blood Stained Love Story resounds with a previously untapped level of passion, energy, sincerity and diversity, not to mention an undeniable melodicism that will endear the band to anyone that feels any sort of connection between reality and music.
"I think we've all been through a blood stained love story of one type or another," says frontman Josey Scott. "It's kind of a metaphor for how things can be a certain way for so long, and then within a day, they just change and you're on this whole other path."
Blood Stained Love Story is an album of growth, a realization that there are more important things in life than cover stories, photo shoots and big Hollywood parties. But while it may be more mature than Saliva's past efforts, it's no less turbulent.
"These songs are about waking up after the party and your wife is gone, your money's gone, your cars are gone and you go, 'What the fuck just happened?'" explains Scott. "It's about trying to get all that stuff back, having a second chance and starting again." [ more ]
