Metal Injection hails upcoming new album Morning for its "catchy grooves and soaring vocals"; MetalSucks calls the band "a matured, evolved beast" whose sound has grown even more epic since 2015's debut LP, Lust Love. Loss.
Yearning, driving, and bursting with hooks, the ten songs on Morning summon a soulful version of heavy rock akin to later Mastodon and Baroness. Tracks like the recently-premiered "Burned" and "Mourning" (featuring guest vocals by Phil Pendergast of hometown Denver pals Khemmis) are earth-shakers that veer from bittersweetness to defiance to rage.
Morning was recorded by Andy Patterson (SubRosa, Cult Leader) and Dave Otero (Cobalt, Cattle Decapitation), and was mixed and mastered by Otero.
The cover art and layout are by Samantha Muljat (Earth, Goatsnake).
