Forgotten City Records has pulled two mighty fine artists together for a split single release of blues influenced, toe-tapping song writing as Dean James and Chased By Badguys have two upbeat-with-an-edge songs put out together. Released through the label’s site on Saturday 13th February at 6pm, with a launch gig at 4.30pm at Pop Recs Ltd in Sunderland the same day, this is a big day for both.

Dark bluesy riffs hold the two tracks together, with slick guitar licks, and smooth-yet-angsty vocals the crux of both. Dean James’ Black Dog is the second track from his album Pure, a mix of haunting and uplifting; it’s an enthralling track that’ll whet your appetite for more from the talented songsmith. Dirty Little Secret is Chased By Badguys’ contribution, a debut single, which has a tortured twang coming through on guitar, with a lingering-yet-subtle rock and roll swagger throughout.

The singles go on digital release through the FCR website, with the launch gig at Pop Recs Ltd sure to be an awesome celebration. Both Dean James and Chased By Badguys will perform a set, and there will be a limited edition lot of physical copies for sale too. With both bands set for big years, a chance to sample them live and then take them home with you is a tough offer to refuse.
