Leeches of Lore Release Motel of Infinity Sept. 22

leeches of lore

New Mexican bizarrorockers Leeches of Lore are the band you go to when everything else just seems too normal. They’ll perform a mercy on the universe on Sept. 22 when they at last unveil their new album, Motel of Infinity, dealing a crushing and hopefully fatal blow against the forces of the generic. The album, produced by Toshi Kasai and pressed up all-class vinyl-style after a successful crowdfunding campaign, culls tracks (some of which have floated around for a bit) that mash styles against each other with such ease that by the time they get around to the Morricone gallop of “White Debbie,” which also appeared on their second record, 2011’s Attack the Future (review here), the full-throttle thrash of “The Sixth Finger” is but a distant memory, despite only having been a few tracks prior.

I’ll have more on Motel of Infinity later this month — as the band notes in the announcement below, the album will be streamed here on Sept. 15 — but Leeches of Lore have also sent word about a two-night release spectacular to be held at Albuquerque’s top-notch establishment Sister Bar on Sept. 18 and 19, special guests and family and all. Looks like a good time:
