THE BLOODY BEETROOTS + JET Release Double Single “My Name Is Thunder” Today, July 7

Today (July 7), THE BLOODY BEETROOTS and Australian rockers JET announce the release of the new double single “My Name Is Thunder.” This is the first track The Bloody Beetroots has shared following his signing to Last Gang Records and will appear on his next album to be released later this year.  The double single arrives to represent the various genres that define The Bloody Beetroots with the first version driven by heavy synths and electronic beats while the other is led by JET’s gritty guitar-driven rock and roll. Both versions of “My Name Is Thunder”--which made its premiere via Loudwireare available to stream and purchase here and here.

“I knew this song needed a certain rock tone… a tone like Nic Cester of Jet had.  We thought instead of someone ‘like Nic Cester,’ how about we get the real Nic Cester! Thinking he would be in Australia, it was fate that he lived just a couple hours away from me in Italy.  I found him,” says The Bloody Beetroots’ Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo. “We worked together, ate together, drank together and created something very powerful together.  Around this time the Jet guys stared talking and thinking about getting back together, when Nic shared this with his bandmates, the idea came up to have ALL of Jet involved.  Because of our different influences, we had different ideas on the mixing and from that we came up with two versions.  It’s the best of both our worlds!”

The Bloody Beetroots-who celebrates his 10-year anniversary-is the moniker of artist, producer and mastermind Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo. Born in Bassano Del Grappa, Italy, Rifo was inspired by a lifelong love of comic books and punk rock, which comprise the visceral kick of The Bloody Beetroots‘ sound. Unleashing his first recordings in 2007, The Bloody Beetroots‘ sound has been featured in commercials, TV shows and video games, and powered dozens of remixes for artists including Depeche Mode, The Chemical Brothers, The Refused, Peaches, Crossfaith and Britney Spears.

After a storied career with highlights including six million albums sold worldwide and the creation of one of the most recognizable rock songs of the early noughties with “Are You Gonna Be My Girl,” Australian band JET called time on their career over seven years ago.  “My Name Is Thunder” is their first piece of recorded music since then.

Spin “My Name Is Thunder” and continue to follow The Bloody Beetroots story with new music on the way, a string of European tour dates as part of his 10th anniversary and more to come.
