News from the land of London! The UK’s Mountains have signed on with a new label to press their latest release on vinyl. This is a lovely thing for me, as I’m a near obsessive collector of heavy sounds spun on wax. Let’s find out the details…

From the ale-swamps of the South come London-based heavy-trio Mountains. Comprising of David Jupp (guitar/vocals), Chris Randall (bass) and Josh Hussey (drums), the band finalized their line-up in 2015 and began work on their début album. In the summer of 2016, Mountains entered Rogue Studios in London to record the eight songs that would make up ‘Dust in the Glare.’
Mastered by Ed Woods (The Who, Ghost of a Thousand, Reuben) and released digitally on March 24th 2017, the record garnered great reviews from some of the big names in the scene, including Riff Relevant, FuzzFM and Desert Psychlist.

This momentum culminated in August 2017 with Mountains signing to German label Rock Freaks Records (Freak Valley Festival) for a run of vinyl across three colors. The record will be pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl, and available in white, marble, and splatter variants.
The release will be issued in the autumn, to coincide with Mountains fall tour with Wychhound and Green Lung.
