60’s all-female band Ace of Cups is making a comeback of epic proportions with the release of their first full-length record, scheduled to be released November 9 on High Moon Records. The album, which is the band’s first release in fifty years, will contain 20 dynamic tracks which will include collaborations with Bob Weir and Taj Mahal. Songs ranging from energetic rock to soulful ballads.
The group formed during the Summer of Love era in San Francisco and broke the mold of female bands since most were known to wear matching outfits and play covers. In their heyday, Ace of Cups shared the stage with Jimi Hendrix, the Grateful Dead, and Jefferson Airplane. With original songs that reflected their circumstances, the formative five-piece also participated in the massive counter-cultural revolution including protests against racial segregation and women’s rights marches. However, they never released any official music nor were signed to a record label, disappearing from the music scene until now.
