The Warlocks begin tour dates this week which concludes at The Austin Psych Fest on Saturday, April 27. The Los Angeles-based band just finished recording their eighth album, Skull Worship which will be released this fall through their label, Zap Banana (Cargo Distribution).
Recorded over a 2 year period, singer Bobby Hecksher revealed:
“We went for a heavier psychedelic feel a la Blue Cheer and maybe Red Crayola. A few songs go into acoustic territory as well maybe something like T Rex and early acoustic David Bowie. Other songs yet turn to Hawkwind, Neu! and experimental rock for inspiration. Pretty much inspired by simple changes with complex guitar fingering.”
Check the band out on the road for a glimpse of what is to come.
