This Friday marks the official release of Heavy Trip, the impending new full-length from California post hardcore/sludge eccentrics HORSENECK. Featuring within their ranks current and past members of Will Haven and Chelsea Wolfe, the ten-track Heavy Trip was captured by Lance Jackman (Will Haven) at The Dock, mixed by Scott Evans (Kowloon Walled City) at Antisleep Studios, and mastered by Carl Saff (Big Business, Helms Alee, Russian Circles) at Saff Mastering, and will see release on February 17th, 2017 on CD, cassette, and digital formats. In celebration of its release, today Decibel Magazine is hosting a full stream of the record before you can buy it issuing, “Album opener ‘Bird Worried’ features an organ, bluesy guitar parts and a combination of clean and harsh vocals. It highlights HORSENECK‘s biggest strength on Heavy Trip — their music isn’t what might be expected and it can be silly, but they bring it together well. There are more aggressive cuts on the album too, like ‘Lester Vitalis’ and ‘No Gods,’ that rely on thicker, fuzzier riffs but HORSENECK never fail to deliver something memorable.” Hear Heavy Trip alongside the hilarious video for “Michael Caine,” below! Heavy Trip preorders are currently available at this spot.
From the depths of the unknown canyon comes a rock force that has undeniable power and style. Steeped in ancient tradition and ritualistic sacrifices this force continually bludgeons the masses who are compelled to witness them. Their heavy riffs continually snap the necks of anyone sent to challenge them. The wild thunder broom undertones growl from on high, and will never be denied. Powerful rhythms shake the very ground they walk on, and those who are lucky enough to witness this spine crushing quartet will undoubtedly never be the same. Anthony the riff Lord, Lennon the bass wizard, Lance the heaviest of shred, and Jess the power thwack and thud will always leave your neck barely able to hold your head up. HORSENECK, shredders and defenders of the rock! Reaping critical accolades from critics both stateside and abroad, Daniel P. Carter recently added Heavy Trip favorite “Bobby Brown” to their Sunday night BBC Radio 1 Rock Show rotation.
“Heavy Trip isn’t just a solid album but it feels like a statement of intent that rock ‘n’ roll is still very much alive…. The album is heavy, catchy and above all else, it’s fun and a genuine pleasure to listen to.” – Altwire“Heavy Trip is an album that more than lives up to its name as it’s a heavy, psychedelic trip and one that will appeal to fans of The Melvins, Queens Of The Stone Age, Indian Handcrafts, and Red Fang the most… Heavy Trip is perhaps one of the strangest and most addictive records you’ll hear this year.” – Outlaws Of The Sun
