Exclusive: BL’AST! Premiere Long-Lost Song, “Tomorrow,’ Mixed by Dave Grohl and Featuring William DuVall of Alice in Chains

Infamous Santa Cruz hardcore legends BL’AST! may have broken up two decades ago, but earlier this year, BL’AST! guitarist Mike Neider contacted record label Southern Lord with news that he had found some mysterious old BL’AST! master tapes in a abandoned storage locker.

With the audio digitized, Dave Grohl, a huge BL’AST! fan, was contacted about mixing this recording. Inside his 606 Studios, a never-before-unreleased BL’AST! recording session from the mid ’80s, dubbed Blood, was finally heard.

The lineup of the band at the time of the recording included second guitarist William DuVall (now the current vocalist-guitarist for Alice in Chains). Unfortunately, his tenure with BL’AST! was short-lived and no recordings from that lineup had been ever released.

Blood will hit stores on September 3 in North America. In anticipation, RevolverMag.com is premiering the song “Tomorrow” off the record right now. Check it out below.

    I thought this was supposed to be a new recording? Aside from the guitar bit at the beginning, isn’t this just the IIMB version – remixed?

      Yep. You think SL would be up front about that??

        Quick question. What’s the problem? It’s still BL’AST!

          Was presented as something that it’s not, that’s all.

          • Taeil

            No it wasn’t it. It’s been established for the past year this is re-releasing a recording that was shelved for two decades.

            Don’t get me wrong, this sounds great – better than IIMB even. However every piece of press I’ve read about this record (including the above article) says it’s a never-before-unreleased BL’AST! recording. Call it what it is: A remixed version of IIMB.

          • Taeil

            A remix would imply it’s the actual recording of IIMB remixed.

            And did you mean “it’s a never-before-RELEASED BL’AST recording”?

          • Taeil

            Remember, no one said it was a new recording. It’s still a new release regardless since it’s never been released before. And why would anyone write that for a tagline?
