WINDHAND COMPLETE NEW ALBUM, MAP OUT SUMMER TOUR, HEAR THEIR SPILIT W/ COUGH
In 2012, backwoods psychedelic doom band Windhand released their self-titled LP & it was met with critical acclaim. The band is putting the finishing touches on their second LP for Relapse, due out this fall, which was recorded & mixed by the band's own Garrett Morris at The Darkroom & mastered by James Plotkin, in their hometown of Richmond, VA. The band will trek across North America this summer ushering their audiences into their menacing grooves & showcasing songs from their upcoming album.
Formed in 2009, Richmond, VA's Windhand (Asechiah Bogdan - Guitar, Parker Chandler - Bass, Dorthia Cottrell - Vocals, Garrett Morris - Guitar, and Ryan Wolfe - Drums) play what has been described as a tinnitus inducing mix of eerie psychedelia and haunting ambient doom. 2012 saw the release of their critically acclaimed, self-titled debut LP via Forcefield Records. A subsequent heavy dose of East Coast touring followed, culminating with a four week U.S. tour in August of that year.
The response from the press and fans alike has been immense. Cvlt Nation's review insists, "Windhand are way more than a band that you should be on the look out for, they are group of humans that will change the way your hear doom." While Decibel Magazine said, "For the most part, Sabbathian doom bands stand out by only writing great songs because sonically it's damn near impossible to separate yourself from the overcrowded genre. But there is something about Richmond's Windhand that makes them even more drugged-out and exceptional...It's massive, addictive destruction. Yeah, these fuckers are gonna be huge."
