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 and will consist of 2 unreleased songs, 2 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) here.
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 do their own thing as HoBP and what they do is simply fantastic.
The artwork for Twisted was designed by Italian artist and HPS favorite Solo Macello.
Just a week prior to the new release, House Of Broken Promises will embark on a European tour where select dates will see them joined by Black Bone. The trek’s itinerary can be found listed below.
