After seeing their recent set at Krug’s Place as part of Stoner Hands of Doom XI in Frederick, Maryland, I’m psyched to hear what kinds of electric wizardry Windhand will bring to their Forcefield Records debut, set for release on Oct. 25. The PR wire sent along the following info, which you’ll find in the apparently Google Readerproof #ccffff blue below:
On the heels of a recent Northeast tour and numerous triumphant local appearances, psyched-out ultra-Sabbathian amplifier worshippers Windhand, who boast ex-members of heavy riffters Facedowninshit and Alabama Thunderpussy within their ranks, will be releasing their self-titled debut LP via Richmond‘s own Forcefield Records.
Slated for an Oct. 25 release, the record will be available in a limited gatefold pressing of violet wax, and was recorded/mixed by Garrett Morris (Parasytic, Bastard Sapling) at the Dark Room with Slipped Disc Audio‘s Bill McElroy (Pentagram, Avail, Alabama Thunderpussy) handling mastering duties.
Windhand was formed in 2008 in Richmond, and self-released their first demo in 2010. Original drummer, Jeff Loucks, parted ways with the band in early 2010, with current drummer Ryan Wolfe (ex-Facedowninshit) joining shortly thereafter. Their mammoth debut LP will be available for preorder on Sept. 27th — stay (down)tuned!
