Florida’s homicidal sonic heavyweights HOLLOW LEG are breaking their silence with some news about the band’s current events.
The biggest news is the announcement that the band will release their fourth studio full-length, ‘Civilizations‘, through Argonauta Records in January of 2019. To accompany that revelation comes a crushing new single from said record, “Mountains Of Stone“.
HOLLOW LEG shared this about the track:
“This one was a collective favorite from the start..shorter more to the point straight rocker, fun to play, this will be a live staple! Lyrically the Mountains symbolize a sanctuary, solitude, a place to find peace and escape from the violence of a civilization.”
As you can hear, HOLLOW LEG continues to explore ever deeper grooves within their signature sound of crushing, dense southern sludge. “Mountains Of Stone” has a massive weight to it, of course, but it is guided with pinpoint accuracy via thick riffs and rumbling rhythms.
Riff Relevant will bring you further developments, like the ‘Civilizations‘ album artwork, tracklist, pre-order options, etc., when they are available.
