One of the truest desert rock acts going, Indio, California‘s House Of Broken Promises, will release a new EP next month. ‘Twisted‘ will arrive on October 6th, 2017.
The new EP will consist of two unreleased songs, two covers (one Black Sabbath and one Billy Squier), plus a bunch of outtakes and live songs for a running time of about 30 minutes of music. It’s coming ‘atcha from Heavy Psych Sounds and pre-orders launched today (September 1st) at Heavy Psych Sounds webstore.
‘Twisted’ was recorded at guitarist/ producer Arthur Seay‘s studio in Indio, near the Joshua Tree area, which has inspired so many stoner/ desert rock bands. His fellow housemates, bassist/ vocalist Joe Mora and drummer Mike Cancino, were part of the John Garcia-fronted Unida along with Seay.
Now the trio does their own thing as House Of Broken Promises and what they do is simply fantastic. The artwork for ‘Twisted’ was designed by the Italian artist and HPS favorite Solo Macello.
