With the release of The Ditch and the Delta’s debut album Hives In Decline coming next week, the band has released a stream for “Sleeping Dogs.”

The album was engineered by Andy Patterson of Subrosa and it shows the band further exploring different aspects of sound design within their unique version of doom and sludge metal. The songs employ different tunings and modal centers which helps the band avoid many of the usual doom trappings of excessive feedback, static harmony, and pentatonic riffs.
