Following their Bloom and Cold EPs, released in 2014 and 2015 respectively, UK sludge act OHHMS are poised to release their debut full-length recording. The new effort will be titled The Fool and will be released on March 31 via Holy Roar Records. The band issued the following comments regarding the release:
“For this past year and a half, we have been creating ‘The Fool’ and it has been an incredible time for us. From the initial concept to the composing of the music and even sorting the final track listing order, each and every aspect to putting this together as been a joy. Key to us achieving this has been the ongoing support of Holy Roar and Tone MGMT who have handled any nonsense we have thrown at them, and left us to our own devices to make the exact album we wanted to make. We are lucky as hell to have you people. We can’t wait for you to hear it. Play it loud!”
The record will feature tarot-inspired packaging, courtesy of Black Sails Design, and will feature three tarot cards with an individual reading for each listener.
Pre-orders for the record will begin on February 3.
