Halford took time before rehearsals to JUDAS PRIESTmost recent tour to drop the voices to the BAD PENNY‘s “Push Comes To Shove”, an Arabic-tinged metallic track with syncopated guitar-drums. The track has just been released and can be streamed below.
“This song just caught me,” Halford noted. “It’s mysterious, dark and sexy.” New York-based metal singer Militia vox, who has been dubbed one of the greatest rock singers of her generation, completes a powerful duo.
“Danny and I found the music and melody for this one, “said Holtzman. “We knew we had something special… those exotic elements of world music, the inner dialogue, the heavy groove… it just took some amazing vocals to bring it home. We’re thrilled. Rob and Militia agreed to sing it. They killed him completely. “
After recording radio hits with their first singles, the bluesy rocker “Voices in my head” (sung by La Torre) and the power ballad “Lose myself” (sung by Augeri), BAD PENNY turned to classical metal with “The mirror is found”, again with La Torre singing. “Push Comes To Shove” dives deeper into dark, heavy territory.
“The purpose of this group is to tap into the sounds and genres that we love, not to categorize ourselves like this or that,” said Holtzman. “We want to keep our listeners and ourselves surprised and challenged. There are still some cool twists to come.”
