ASG STREAMING NEW ALBUM, BLOOD DRIVE, VIA PITCHFORK ADVANCE, 4 STARS FROM ALTERNATIVE PRESS; STEREOGUM SAYS “RESIN-STICKY SUMMERTIME METAL”

Posted 5/21/13

ASG, the North Carolina quartet who will release Blood Drive, their first new album in nearly six years on May 28, are streaming the 12-song release via Pitchfork Advance.  


Alternative Press has awarded the album a four-star review, adding “mentioning these ASG cats in the same breath as riff-rockers Torche or Queens Of The Stone Age is not only misleading, it might even be an understatement.”  Decibel gaveBlood Drive an 8/10 review and said “it’s refreshing to hear a metal band that doesn’t have to compromise heaviness on its way to pop nirvana.”  


The band was just added to Scion’s Rock Fest on June 1 in Memphis and will also play the Hopscotch Festival in Raleigh in early September.  ASG play a hometown, record release show on Friday at The Soapbox in Wilmington, N.C.  


Pre-order bundles for the CD/2xLP/Digital album are available now via Relapse with a deluxe digital version available via iTunes. The 2xLP version of Blood Drive features an exclusive bonus track: “Mourning of the Earth.”
