New music video from WINDHAND "Red Cloud"

New music video from WINDHAND, "Red Cloud"

Check out our Q&A Interview with Windhand from our archives.

About the video:
Director and animator Zev Deans follows the exploits of a washed-up Warlock and his imbecilic Henchman as they attempt to summon The Scarlet Woman. It's saturated with the visual style of technicolor horror and blends live-action with animated scenery. "Red Cloud" is equal parts homage to and satire of the psych-horror of the 1960's, specifically the works of Jean Rollin and Roger Corman's Poe series and it's here just in time for Halloween.

"Red Cloud" is the latest single from the Windhand's highly acclaimed, Eternal Return, released earlier this month on Relapse. The album is a complete life-to-death journey. As unplanned things go, it's an observation of as well as a reflection on life's ups and downs, joys and sorrows, beginnings and ends. In recent years, WINDHANDwelcomed new life, survived lineup changes, and mourned unexpected death. The songs and song ordering are the direct result of those experiences. 

WINDHAND’s 4th studio album Eternal Return is out now on CD/2xLP/CS/Digital on Relapse Records. Physical packages are available for order HERE and Digital Downloads/Streaming AT THIS LOCATION.

Eternal Return, produced by Jack Endino (Soundgarden, Nirvana), represents a new era for the group, a chrysalis moment that takes them to new and unforeseen heights. Boosted by Garrett Morris' consistently cool riffs-forged at the crossroads of Iommi's otherworldly import and Kurt Cobain's spontaneous precocity-powered by Ryan Wolfeand Parker Chandler's groove-laden rhythms, and propelled by Dorthia Cottrell's smoky yet wistful vocals, WINDHAND's new album is a two-step jump for Richmond's finest purveyors of the psycho-actively heavy.

The Sheepdogs At The Chapel - August 5

GET TICKETS HERE

Formed in Saskatoon, The Sheepdogs have continued to follow in the footsteps of Canadian rock legends including Neil Young, The Band and The Guess Who with a bold take on classic guitar rock and polished retro sound. The Sheepdogs came into the national spotlight in 2011 as the first unsigned band to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone, and since then have won four JUNO awards and been nominated for seven over their impressive career.

Following the release of their 2015 album Future Nostalgia (Dine Alone Records), The Sheepdogs have brought their raucous live set to thousands of fans across the UK, Europe and North America – including many sold out shows, and 3K-cap venues in Canada The band continues on their North American run including headlining dates in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans + more, as well as many festivals including Philly Folk Fest in Philadelphia and CMA Fest in Nashville.

Future Nostalgia

Praise for Future Nostalgia:

“The album is fully in the thrall of that 70s groove. Gnarly double guitar noodling ("Downtown") and soft focus drive-time goodness ("Jim Gordon"). "Take a Trip" will make you want to spark up and dance around and make out.” - Noisey

“The Sheepdogs have a bold take on classic guitar rock” – Yahoo! Music

"The Sheepdogs twist classic psychedelic rock with hints of folk and turn it into music that is pure ear candy" - Baeble Music

“[Future Nostalgia is] steeped in the classic and psychedelic rock of the 70′s but also feels like a blast of fresh sounds in a musical landscape in desperate need of (good) bands capable of writing punchy rock and roll tunes.” – Glide

“[‘Take A Trip’] has all of the hallmarks associated with monster '70s rock that ruled the music world” – Pure Volume

TRUE WIDOW Reveal ‘Avvolgere’ Album Details + Pre-Orders, Premiere “Entheogen”

Dallas trio TRUE WIDOW have announced their fourth album Avvolgere, due out this Sept. 23 on CD/2xLP/DLX 2xLP/Digital via Relapse Records. The forthcoming LP perfects the formula that 2013's Circumambulation established: Avvolgere rocks and rolls with serene, rounded climaxes and steep, jangling choruses that engulf the listener with waves of downbeat, saccharine melodies and mesmerizing distortion. TRUE WIDOW's signature alternation between male and female vocals helps further blur the boundaries between the heft of stoner rock, the droning atmosphere of shoegaze, and the twangy catchiness of blues and indie rock. It's both concise and circuitous - the album takes you on a journey that you can't ever quite predict or expect. Avvolgere is TRUE WIDOW sounding more infectious and consummate than ever before.

Eliot Sumner announces tour dates with On An On with stops including San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and more. The tour follows the premiere of "Dead Arms & Dead Legs", Eliot's first new music of 2015

Eliot's EP Information, which was released in 2014 via Cherrytree/Interscope still bore some of the synth-pop hallmarks of her output as I Blame Coco, but its release captured a new audience with a renewed sense of focus and clarity. There are some more sophisticated influences on the record, from her favorite band as a teenager, the Bad Seeds, to bands like Cluster, Faust, and Kraftwerk. Following the release of the EP, Eliot joined Lykke Li as support on her European tour dates. The backstage antics of Eliot and her band were captured in a three-part behind the scenes documentary that featured on i-D, "On the Road with Eliot Sumner and Lykke Li".

"There's a newly minted swagger to her pop" - Noisey

"Eliot Sumner will have you dancing with new single 'After Dark'" - Billboard

"['Dead Arms & Dead Legs' is] brooding, minimal, beautiful" - The Sunday Times (UK)

"['Dead Arms & Dead Legs' is] a pretty huge pop song, with Sumner's androgynous alto sounding dusty and world-weary over a cloudy melody, anxious percussion, and-by song's end-a seasick swell of feedback" - The Fader

Sights & Sounds: Band: STORIES - Album: "THE YOUTH TO BECOME"

New video
Band: Stories
Song: "Under Haze"

Pretty intense new song from the band Stories playing Chicago this week and Australia in September. Check them out on tour if you can. ‘Under Haze’ is taken from the debut Stories album ‘The Youth To Become’ - Available August 14th via UNFD/Rise Records.

Pre-Order on iTunes:

Stories

Stories have today announced that their debut album The Youth To Become will be released next Friday August 14 via UNFD. The album is available to preorder now from 24Hundred and iTunes.

[iframe id="https://www.youtube.com/embed/iKRejeIBbJE"]

"The Youth To Become is a powerful demonstration of what's possible when talent meets dedication. A record of poise and punch, Stories' debut full-length is the sound of five young men rewriting the rules of heavy music.

Led by Morgan Dodson, Stories have created a record that aches with taut pressure. The Youth To Become is a caustic blast of energy created by Dodson, his guitarist brother Nic, guitarist Sean Young, bassist Luke Fuller and drummer Roscoe Frazier who draws influence from post-hardcore, metal, alternative and progressive rock, but never dwells too long on a particular style. And considering they were discovered by Northlane guitarist Josh Smith, who nurtured them from an early stage, that scope makes sense.

With two brothers guiding the creative process - Nic writes the music and Morgan the lyrics - Storieshave evolved into one of the most exciting young heavy bands in the world. "Because we're brothers, we tend to be on the same sort of track with a lot of our opinions and feelings," explains Morgan. "This has been the case since I can remember. Since we started writing The Youth To Become, our bond has certainly strengthened more and more, and I definitely feel like we make a good team when working anything creative together."

Today, Stories reveal the first single from the album 'Under Haze.' Morgan explains the track: "Being the last song we wrote on the album, it took little pieces from each stretch of the record and came together with a pretty dark vibe. We knew right from when we wrote it that it would be a cool song for people to hear first. Lyrically, I feel like I created a strong sense of imagery with this track, and it parallels with the high energy of the sounds."
