Album: Stand Your Ground
Label: Cavalier Records
Vertrieb: Broken Silence
VÖ: 5. April 2019

Der holländische Blues-Rocker Julian Sas legt mit “Stand Your Ground” ein fabelhaftes zehntes Studio-Album vor. Nachdem er mit seiner Band über ein Jahr intensiv getourt ist, nahm er praktisch im Live-Modus die 8 Songs des Albums in kürzester Zeit im Studio ohne Netz und doppeltem Boden auf.

Die teils autobiografischen Songs zeigen Sas und seine Band als kompromisslose und gradlinige Streiter für eine bessere Welt. Und Julian Sas selbst brilliert als Gitarrist und Sänger auf “Stand Your Ground”.

Stand Your Ground, the new Julian Sas studio album features 8 new songs and was analogously recorded in the completely renewed The Van Studios in Spakenburg, The Netherlands in December 2018. It is the tenth studio album of the Dutch Blues-Rocker and his sixteenth if the various live albums are included. Stand Your Ground is co-produced by Julian Sas and long-time manager Ed Bos.

Asked about his new album, Julian tells us that Stand Your Ground has become a ‘back-to-basics’ record. Uncompromising, earthy and without frills.  Proud, with passion and faith in what we do and who we are. After a year of extensive touring, it was time to capture that energy in new music. We deliberately opted for good preparation and a short recording process. Thus capturing the energy that characterizes our live performance. Writing the songs was a very natural process. This time the music came to us, as it were. What started as jam sessions quickly became very strong licks and grooves. The result:  we were guided by the songs. We are exploring new paths without losing sight of who we are. In many ways the Julian Sas Band has never been predictable. We never wanted to commit ourselves to one style. And we never did. Influences come from outside and inside …… the music is the mentor, the love and where it comes from, what drives us … you’ll hear that on this album.

The lyrics reflect topics that Julian Sas wonders, thinks and worries about; politics and how it is ‘sold’, the power of money, relationships, twists of life, the love of the working-class hero; the common man, the unrest in body and soul, the passion for traveling and being on the road. Sometimes autobiographical, sometimes written as an observer.

Firmly Julian Sas and his musical partners have been sailing their own course through the musical landscape for almost 25 years. No compromises has always been the thought behind the band. Honest music based on heart, soul and hard work. The rock ‘n’ roll idea – its revolutionary aspect – is deeply rooted in the soul of this band. Stand Your Ground embodies everything the band stands for and is an exciting new chapter in the, already impressive, oeuvre of these blues-rockers ….

….Music this great just doesn’t happen everyday…. (Blues Underground Network – USA)
