Chelsea Boots sprang to life in Madrid, in 2014. It didn’t take long for them to make their mark, leading to major success with their first Spanish Tour, including their sold-out in Teatro Barceló in front of more than 800 people, their appearance in Mad Cool Festival and a contract with Universal Music Spain. After four years of hard work, the band has recorded their debut album, set to be released late 2018, in which the band offers their fresh rock mixed with pop, hip-hop, R&B and electronic music. Their first singles “Dreams Die On The Road”, “This Roof Is Burning” and “Love On Me” are the beginning of a new era for the band.
The band’s debut album will be called “Guilty Pleasure”. Like every other Guilty Pleasure, it hides a solid desire: the need to embrace more than one musical genre, to strive for many kinds of creative output, to change the old-fashioned underwear that guitar bands have been sporting since God knows when! Guilty Pleasure is of its time, a time when reggaeton and rock coexist in the same playlists, a time in which listeners devour antithetic songs without any prejudices, or guilt, or even remorse. It is also a clear statement: the members of the band, just as their contemporaries, understand culture as a diverse buffet, and they are willing to try everything it has to offer. Passionate music lovers, they present an album that reflects, from the perspective of a rock band, the heterogeneity of the 21st century.
They achieved this by surrounding themselves wisely with the best of the best. The album was recorded in the span of just two weeks in Reno Estudios (Madrid), and it was produced by Ramiro Nieto and Martí Perarnau. Santos Berrocal and Ramiro Nieto did the mixing, and the final product was mastered by Angel Luján. The album will be released soon. Watch this space.

But for now we can savor some tracks from this album: “THIS ROOF IS BURNING” has already been released. It is essentially a love song. In it, the band dives deep and dark into the realm of synthesizers, tender lips, and MiniMoogs. The song is about resignation, impossible romance and an improbable disastrous trip to Rome, with early 80s ingredients presented in a very Mediterranean fashion. It’s sweet, joyous and sad, just as every love story should be when you are in your twenties.
Now the band releases the brand new single “LOVE ON ME” . The song is the ultimate fantasy: mixing, in one song, the intensity of contemporary urban Latin music with the swagger and violence of distorted guitars. This hedonist extravaganza sums up the attitude of their upcoming album: no frontiers allowed.
