Washington heavy rockers Mos Generator have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, Abyssinia, over at Decibel. Titled “Wicked Willow”, the new jam barrels forth with sludgy/stoner metal adjacent instrumentation with a smoky blues tinge. Guitarist/vocalist Tony Reed commented on the new track:
“‘Wicked Willow’ shows us consciously moving into new territory. As a songwriter, I have become less concerned with the confines of the genre I write in and more willing to open the floodgates for all of my influences to make their way into the core sound of the band. That makes some songs, like ‘Wicked Willow,’ hard to define. Heavy pop in B tuning with a self-loathing gothic tinge to the lyrics may or may not be the best way to describe it. We will see what the listeners have to say.”

Abyssinia will be released on July 15 (Europe) and August 5 (North America) via Listenable Records.
The album’s artwork, track listing and the band’s upcoming touring schedule can be found after the break.
