TURKEY VULTURE Launches Spotify PreSave for “In The Pines”

Connecticut’s heavy genre-benders Turkey Vulture have launched a Spotify presave campaign for their upcoming acoustic single “In The Pines.”  The duo’s haunting cover of the folk classic will be released on Halloween. 

Frontwoman Jessie May said of the track, “There are so many different recordings and verses of ‘In the Pines,’ all with a common tragic thread.  Our version is based on the Nirvana and Leadbelly ones, but played in a minor key.  We also adapted some of the lyrics that are on Bill Monroe’s 1952 recording, and added a few of our own words to continue the story.”

Track Credits

  • Jessie May — vocals, acoustic guitar, cello

About Turkey Vulture
Americana-inspired metal with a punk edge might not be the first thing you affiliate with southern Connecticut, but such is the daily bread of Turkey Vulture. This duo infuses Motörhead with Social Distortion by way of The White Stripes and even Dolly Parton, belting out anthems that protest the suffering of our modern age.  With their June 2019 EP Boxer making rounds in the underground and a music video of the title track showing off their sparkling personalities, Turkey Vulture hopes to take their blend of sounds to a wider audience, driving their love for music and hatred of systematic oppression to brave new heights.
