Desert Suns to Release Self-Titled Vinyl on HeviSike Records


San Diego four-piece Desert Suns recently inked a deal for a new release through Ripple Music, but before they get there, they’ll oversee a vinyl issue of their self-titled debut. Originally put out by the band in 2014, the HeviSike edition of the album features a vinyl-specific master by Tony Reed of Mos Generator, and will be limited to 300 copies, 100 clear and exclusive to the label, 200 white for the band and distribution. The artwork is a selling point on its own, but that’s not to discount the quality of what Desert Suns do either. For those who’d look to get in on the ground floor, here it is.

Desert Suns vinyl released on HeviSike Records April 2015

San Diego, CA stoner rockers DESERT SUNS release their self-titled debut LP on vinyl through HeviSike Records in April 2015. The four-piece demonstrate versatility unseen amongst their contemporaries; this six-song debut sees the band touch on psychedelia, blues-rock and doom. The group gained attention in late 2014 after their stoner rock anthem SPACE PUSSY was featured on Classic Rock Magazine’s (UK) cover-mount compilation ‘The Levee Breaks’ (November, 2014).

Fans of early 70s proto-metal acts such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Steppenwolf and Blue Cheer will appreciate the classic groove demonstrated on this record, as will followers of modern stoner rockers Fu Manchu, Kadavar, Graveyard and Clutch. Haunting lyrics of alienation accompany the listener on a journey through the sinister and the beautiful.
Limited to just 300 copies, this one time press LP is manufactured with vinyl enthusiasts in mind; mastered specifically for the format by renowned multi-instrumentalist Tony Reed (Mos Generator/Stone Axe) at HeavyHead Recording Co in Washington, USA and pressed on high grade colour vinyl. Cover art is provided by San Diego’s own Jimmy Ovadia.

Pressing breakdown: 100 Copies – Clear Vinyl – Exclusive to 200 Copies – White Vinyl – Band and Distribution edition
includes: 4 x Limited Edition postcards and 1 x A3 size poster insert demonstrating the art of Jimmy Ovadia.

David Russell – Bass/Vocals
Woogie Maggard – Guitar
