New Orleans Suspects’ new Ouroboros in stores today, 10/14

Though they have been begging off the moniker of “supergroup” in some recent stories, the New Orleans Suspects are still a super group. Their latest release features ten brand new, all original songs, which call to mind the members’ influences while remaining true to their New Orleans roots.

Ouroboros is the band’s third release and the follow-up to their 2012 live CD, Caught Live At The Maple Leaf.

It defines the band’s sound, which is one that puts their own twist on the traditions of New Orleans music–fever-inducing funk, irresistible R&B rhythms, Longhair rhumbas, dancing-in-the-street second lines, jazzy soul-drenched horns, mind-melting swamp hoodoo, and feet-don’t-fail-me-now Carnival music.

The band carefully chose the title of the recording. The Ouroboros is a powerful symbol–an ancient circular icon of a serpent eating its own tail–that represents the cycle of renewal. This idea perfectly describes New Orleans Suspects, a band that represents a second chance, or rebirth, for its veteran members.

The New Orleans Suspects will throw a release party on Friday night, 10/17. The two-set performance at the Maple Leaf Bar will include requested songs from the band’s IndieGoGo campaign during the first set. The second set will be Ouroboros performed in its entirety.
