World-renowned power trio High On Fire will release their highly-anticipated new album, Luminiferous, on June 22 via Century Media in Europe. Recorded at Salem, Massachusetts’ GodCity Studios with producer Kurt Ballou, the record is the follow-up to the group’s 2012 release, De Vermis Mysteriis, an album hailed as “not for the faint of heart” by The New Yorker and “a fantastically constructed bloodbath” by Entertainment Weekly. Today, the band premiered the first new music from Luminiferous, rolling out the new High On Fire song, “The Black Plot”.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
