The Skinny: The Warlocks release their first new album in 5 years, Skull Worship, on November 26, 2013 through Zap Banana (Cargo Distribution). Stream and share the lead single “Dead Generation” just above!

Recorded over a 2 year period, Skull Worship is the Los Angeles-based band’s eighth album. The Warlocks construct a dense, more elaborate web of sound, layers of distortion and the occasional synth a la Silver Apples and Red Crayola. “Silver & Plastic” expands the band’s oeuvre into acoustic territory recalling T Rex. Other songs like “Endless Drops” turn to Hawkwind, Neu! and experimental rock for inspiration.

“Not everything fits perfectly on this record,” describes singer Bobby Hecksher. “There are loose parts, fragmented sections and then it rocks all together. It’s not perfectly polished like a lot of records out there. More like an expression of moments in time that drip together like a strange dream.”
