The five piece band entered the studio earlier this year to lay down the tracks for the album, which will be titled ‘Omniscient’. They recorded the ten track album with Jamie Dodd at Flesh & Bone Studio, Hackney, before the producer – who counts Orange Goblin among his credits – returned to The Animal Farm studio in south London, where it was mixed.
The band commented: “This album is a natural progression from our previous releases; it has elements of blues, sludge, stoner, psychedelia and even a bit of folk. We’ve mixed things up a bit for a more interesting album – in our opinion. We’re looking forward to seeing what other people think, come January”.
The follow up to 2013’s critically acclaimed ‘Horizontal Life‘, which was mastered by Billy Anderson (Melvins, Sleep, Cathedral) now has a confirmed release date of 26th January 2015. What may appear to the untrained eye to be a straight up stoner rock album, has a bluesy depth and at times veers towards a folk-tinged acoustic edge. A taster of the album has already been unveiled by way of the track ‘Queen Reefer’ which was recently streamed by Terrorizer magazine.
In addition to the album news, DESERT STORM are delighted to confirm that they’ll be on the bill at the 2015 Desertfest in London. Sleep, Red Fang and Orange Goblin are already confirmed for the event which will take place at various venues in Camden, between 24th-26th April.
Artwork for the release was created by Bolton based tattoo artist Dale Sarok.
DESERT STORM will appeal to fans of The Sword, Clutch, Down and Torche. ‘Omniscient’ is their third album – their heaviest, yet most diverse release to date. The band have notched up many high profile support slots over the years, including tours with Karma To Burn and Nashville Pussy.
‘Omniscient’ will be released on January 26th via Blindsight Records.
