Boston’s stoner colossus GOZU has premiered the song “Big Casino” from their forthcoming new album Revival which is due to be released on June 10, 2016 through Ripple Music.
Since appearing on the underground scene in 2009 after the release of their self-titled EP, Gozu have continued to lay down a furious and rare breed of colossal stoner rock. A sound that in recent years has truly come into its own, already two albums deep with 2010’s Locust Season and 2013’s The Fury Of A Patient Man, both released on the influential Small Stone Records label.
After a number of years playing live shows with the likes of St. Vitus, Pallbearer, Fu Manchu and Church Of Misery – in both the US and Europe at festivals such as Roadburn and Desert Fest – Gozu finally entered Wild Arctic Studios in Portsmouth, NH in September to record album number three with engineer Dean Baltulonis.
With their line-up completed by the arrival of bassist Joe Grotto (Motherboar) and former Warhorse drummer Mike Hubbard, over six days the quartet laid down the eight tracks that make up their new studio album Revival. Mastered by the master himself, Mos Generator’s Tony Reed, at HeavyHead in WA, both Ripple Music and Gozu look forward to unleashing it on audiences worldwide on 10 June 2016.
