Ontario’s sludgy/stoner metal tyrants Gypsy Chief Goliath have premiered their forthcoming record, Citizens of Nowhere, at Revolver. The record is officially due out this Friday, April 15, via Pitch Black Records. Pre-orders can be placed here. The record is a delightfully heavy, eccentric blend of stoner rock, sludge metal and hard rock. If Clutch, Sleep and Eyehategod had a baby, it would sound a bit like Gypsy Chief Goliath. Check out the album now.
