GURT Return w/ ‘Bongs Of Praise’ Album & New Lyric Video; RageFest 2019

Article By: Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker, Senior Writer/Journalist ‡ Edited By: Leanne Ridgeway, Owner/Chief Editor

London’s miscreant beast of excessive sludge, GURT, announce the September 6th release of the new studio album, ‘Bongs Of Praise‘, via the band’s own label, When Planets Collide.

The band’s third such collection of dank musical mire, the 10-song ‘Bongs Of Praise‘ was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Steve Sears, Jr. at Monolith Studios, London, U.K. Much like their fellow sonic priests of weed worship in Dopethrone or Weed Is Weed, GURT discharge bludgeoning, cannabis crazed cacophonies. The pungently pummeling menace provided by Gareth Growth Kelly (vocals), Rich Sedulurt Williams (guitar), DaveSpice Blakemore (bass), and Bill The Scorpion Jacobs (drums), is a harsh, downtuned heavyweight of groove and audible abuse.

Today, we light up and move out the single “Rolling Stoned” by means of a new lyric video created by Clem Colt and featuring images created by Mark Williams of Heavy Hand Illustration. This song follows the previously premiered, short and sweet “Jazz Cabbage” visualizer featuring animation from Dead Walk Designs LTD. With this pair of ocular presentations, we include the unveiling of the ‘Bongs Of Praise‘ album artwork (also created by Mark Williams) and tracklist.

Bongs Of Praise’ is preceded by two full-length albums from GURT, 2017’s ‘Skullossus[review] and 2014’s ‘Horrendosaurus‘, and no less than seven EPs. The new album is set to arrive from When Planets Collide on September 6th and is available in the formats listed below.
