Duckwalk Chuck to release new album ‘Fired Up’ on September 17th
Norwegian rockers Duckwalk Chuck consisting of lead vocalist / bassist Arvid Thorsen, guitarists Håkon Rønneberg and Arild Rettore, and drummer Tord Eiken will be releasing their new studio album Fired Up on September 17, 2021.
The group’s press release indicates (with slight edits):
“Duckwalk Chuck is a Norwegian band that plays hard, uncompromising rock ‘n’ roll, where absolutely nothing is left to chance. Straight forward and in your face! Exactly as hard, gritty rock`n`roll should be delivered with loads of attitude, well-crafted tunes, powerful riffs and great choruses that will embed in your brain instantly. The band was established back in 2001, and consist of experienced players that have honed their craft and musicianship for decades in the genre of rock ‘n’ roll.
Duckwalk has been an active live band over the years; playing multiple stages throughout Norway; as well as shared stage with bands like The Carburetors, Backstreet Girls, Bonafide and The Quireboys to name a few.
The band has released several recordings as well: Comin ‘Out Blastin’ CD (2004), Tombstone Stomp CD (2008), Rebel EP (2009), High Speed City CD (2017), “Cold Hard Love” single (2018) and “Nothing Left” single (2018).”
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of High Speed City: “I’m not going to beat around the bush on this one any longer. I am absolutely loving Duckwalk Chuck‘s High Speed City. If you really like Airbourne — and I know that there are many Sleaze Roxx readers (including myself) who do — odds are that you will really enjoy High Speed City. On the fast paced tracks “Bite The Bullet” and “Dog Bites Back”, you would even be hard pressed to distinguish between the two bands. The Norwegian group Duckwalk Chuck have adopted it seems a faster paced approach on most of their songs (the exceptions being “Heads Are Gonna Roll,” “Animal Attraction” and “Southbound Man”) as their musical output reminds me of the faster paced tracks that Airbourne have come up with over the years. Even though most songs are faster paced, I find that there is a decent amount of variety on the album and no two songs sound really alike.”
