Guitarist John Johnston (Congress, Slow Learners, Brutal Poodle) along with bassist David Graham and drummer Ben Goldberg have unveiled a new track from their forthcoming release Alternative Classics.
Johnston’s work in the past has ranged from Neurot Records-Esque doom/hardcore, to power pop. The common thread seems to be a first rate ear for writing songs. “Bridge and Tunnel” is no exception. ViewMaster is not unlike elements of American 6 string aces like Castor, or Chavez.
Denver doom trio Primitive Man have announced the release of their sophomore full-length album. The new record, which is the first full-length release since 2013’s Scorn and follows a plethora of EP and split releases, will be titled Caustic and will be released on October 6 via Relapse Records. Once again recorded and produced by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio (Cephalic Carnage, et al), the new release will feature 12 tracks and over 75 minutes of doom and gloom.
Check out the artwork, track listing and album trailer after the break.
