Stoner doom band Hangman’s Chair are about to drop their fifth studio record, Banlieue Triste and you can view their latest video for “Naïve” above. Over the last several years, the band has released a steady flow of singles, EPs, albums and split releases. All have shown a steady growth and the band’s trademark ability to blend emotional and musical weight with fragile interludes and atmospheric swathes of sound.

“We feel that Banlieue Triste has something special — a taste of relief,” said Chanut. “With these songs, we believe that we’ve truly found our identity. We’ve never been this personal before in terms of the influences, the lyrics, the sound, and the artwork. Banlieue Triste is what we are now and what we used to be as kids – it’s full of nostalgia, the broken French dream.”
