Originally released by the band last year and still up as a name-your-price download on their Bandcamp (see below), the Ian Blurton-recorded debut album from Toronto heavy-’70s-meets-heavy-’10s-style cultish rockers Rough SpellsRuins at Midday, will see vinyl release through Fuzzed and Buzzed Records in cooperation with European imprint DHU Records. You might recall the two labels aligned previously behind the Astral Witch LP, and Rough Spells won’t be their final collaboration either, as Fuzzed and Buzzed informs below its intention to release full-lengths from all the bands included in its The Altar Box 7″ collection, which included Rough SpellsAstral Witch and Häxan in a gorgeously realized ambitious first release for the Canadian label (which they’ve since followed with the more glam-minded The Powder Box). So there’s one more to go, and then who knows.

March 7 is  the exact release date for the vinyl, and there’s a release party with Lousy Riders and Witchrot that is a thing that’s happening, and everyone knows happening things are where it’s at.

Behold:

After the successful release last year of The Altar Box featuring Rough Spells, Häxan and Astral Witch, Fuzzed and Buzzed will be co-releasing with DHU Records in Europe, debut albums by each of these bands.

The first will be the Rough Spells full length LP Ruins At Midday.

Womb doom witch ‘n rollers Rough Spells present a night of occult riffs and ritual delights as they celebrate the release of their debut album Ruins At Midday, a co-release of up and coming local label Fuzzed and Buzzed Records and dark hedonistic European label DHU Records. Joining Rough Spells on their journey to the center of the mystical mind are diabolical local Doom duo Lousy Riders and the seventh best band of all time (narrowly pushing the Beatles out of the top ten) Witchrot. This is an early show, so be there on time to brew the cauldron, take the potion and ready the brooms to fly off into the midnight witching hour.

With a successful EP and a forthcoming hit album, Rough Spells blast out of Toronto by way of Montreal, Vancouver and the Maritimes with a sound best described as Heart fronted by Stevie Nicks.

Already notorious for an Instragram band breakup post that went viral, Witchrot are now set to capture infamy with their killer combo of ethereal vocals, crushing riffs and heavy bottom end dredged up from your local graveyard.

Hailing from Eastern Europe, Lousy Riders are here to drop an Iron Curtain on North America like Black Sabbath’s Iron Man.
