Pittsburgh’s Doom/Sludge underground foursome HOREHOUND continues their ascension skyward with news of a new partnership with San Francisco’s Doom Stew Records for the release of their second full-length album, ‘HOLOCENE‘.
Set for a street date of November 30, 2018, ‘Holocene‘ will be available on CD, Vinyl, and Digital (Bandcamp, Spotify, and all major streaming outlets) formats with global distribution upon release. When asked about signing with a new label, the band had this to say:
“It’s really great to have been offered the opportunity to work with Doom Stew Records. They have been involved with strong and unique sounding artists and we just really like what they are doing. It’s going to be a great partnership.”
Holocene – Tracklist:
01. The Kind
02. Dier’s Dirge
03. L’appel du Vide
04. The Sloth
With all music written and performed by Horehound, the album was recorded and mixed by Matt Schor at War Room in Pittsburgh, with mastering done by James Plotkin at Plotkinworks. The incredible cover artwork illustration is by Brian Mercer.
We helped the band introduce the new album to the world several weeks ago with a video for the début of “L’appel du Vide“, the third track from ‘Holocene‘. (Catch that announcement HERE). The visualizer was created by Sam McDonald. It happens to be my favorite song off the upcoming album, but check this stunning mind-bender of a video out below!
Horehound is also set to play Friday, September 28th (tomorrow!) at the second annual DESCENDANTS OF CROM event in Pittsburgh. Do not miss this event if you can help it, the lineup is amazing. See you there! (Facebook Event HERE.)
