Adia Victoria Announces Debut Album Beyond The Bloodhounds

"I wrote this album as a memorial to my 20s," says Victoria.

unnamed-6Bluesy afro punk singer-songwriter Adia Victoria has announced her highly anticipated debut album Beyond The Bloodhounds, which is set to drop May 13 via Canvasback Music. The Nashville-based artist also released a new single, “Dead Eyes,” a rollicking and unshakably creepy track that gets inside the mind of the “mad black woman antagonist” often fabled in the blues.

“I wrote this album as a memorial to my 20s,” says Victoria of Beyond The Bloodhounds. “Those are tender years for a lot of women. It hurts.”
