Dakota Blood Stampede by Shotgun Facelift

Dakota Blood Stampede by Shotgun Facelift was released on December 17, 2021. While the band recorded the album, remaining entirely ‘real’ was the utmost focus for the record. Tyler Pilot of Red Dot Recording was tapped to handle the production and the massive task of tracking the entire album live. The band wanted this album to be real as real gets, so they tracked it as live as possible, with everyone playing at the same time. It was exhausting, but the proof comes through. The album sounds like the band is playing right in front of the listener, it’s nasty, real and loud. Drummer Jody Smith says on about the entire method Tyler Pilot employed through the band to bring the vision to life. Jody explains, “I wanted to beat people’s skulls in on this record with the drum sound. I wanted deep, deep, deep. Total attitude, you know? That’s what this band is, and only that kind of drum sound fits it. Tyler did a great job of capturing that.
