Congratulations to Blaak Heat Shujaa on Signing to Tee Pee Records

Kudos to L.A. by way of New York by way of Paris by way of the desert by way of reverb rockers Blaak Heat Shujaa on the announcement of their signing to Tee Pee Records. The band is hard at work on the follow-up to their impressive self-titled debut (review here), and the news of their assignation just came down the PR wire.

To wit:

BLAAK HEAT SHUJAA Sign to Tee Pee Records

Fast Rising Los Angeles-via-Paris Based Trio Set to Enter the Studio to Record “Mind Expanding” Sophomore LP

Buzzworthy French-American psych rockers BLAAK HEAT SHUJAA have signed with NYC’s Tee Pee Records. Formed in 2008 in Paris, France, BLAAK HEAT SHUJAA promptly established themsleves as the ‘young Turks’ of European heavy psychedelia and boast a cinematic sound that has been called “Heavy Spaghedelia” and ”Kyussian”, featuring “psychedelic, meditative, trance-inducing” and “spacey atmospheres”. Now based in Los Angeles, the trio’s highly anticipated second album — a clamorous combination of neo-psychedelia, heavy rock and spaghetti rock — will be recorded at Scott Reeder‘s (Kyuss, The Obsessed) Sanctuary Studio in the California desert and released in March, 2013.

Comprised of Thomas Bellier (also of Mirror Queen; Sonny Simmons Ensemble), Antoine Morel-Vulliez and new drummer Michael Amster (also of Black Acid Devil; Jesus & The Sputnik 9), BLAAK HEAT SHUJAA  will be joined in the studio by Nobel Prize-nominated gonzo poet, Ron Whitehead and by desert rock legend Mario Lalli (of Yawning Man; Fatso Jetson; Desert Sessions…), with whom BHS has toured. After a globally acclaimed 2010 debut (also produced by Reeder), a full European tour with Yawning Man and numerous shows throughout Europe with prominent rock and psychedelic acts (including Dead Meadow, Karma to Burn, and Acid King), BLAAK HEAT SHUJAA is currently working on its new material which will push the group’s “exploration of mind-expanding music forms” into entirely new realms.

Additionally, BLAAK HEAT SHUJAA have announced a string of August live dates in California alongside the aforementioned Ron Whitehead. The run will kick off on August 22 in Palm Springs.

BLAAK HEAT SHUJAA tour dates:
August 22      Palm Springs, CA      Dillon’s Roadhouse
August 23      Wonder Valley, CA    The Palms
August 24      Los Angeles, CA        The Overpass
August 25     Oceanside, CA            The Royal Dive
