Sell My Soul

Album: Poison The Parish (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • The closing track of Poison The Parish, this features a much softer sound. Drummer John Humphrey told Amnplify:

    "The recording of that song was treated much differently than the other songs. In terms of recording drums, anyway. I used this massive 28 inch 1920's era Leedy bass drum. It was such a laid back and 'capturing the vibe' sorta moment. The drum part is very straight ahead but sometimes getting that to feel right can be much harder to perform than playing something fast."
