Sludgy Canadians Get Ready For Europe With New EP
Hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, riff-laden quartet Astrakhan
are offering up a four track EP to end their year with a bang.
Featuring two tracks that were previously release as a digital EP, they’ve also added two brand new, never released, tracks to make up the A Tapestry of Scabs and Skin EP. Recorded with producer Jesse Gander (Bison, 3 Inches of Blood, Anciients) in two sessions totalling eight days, the results are, say the band, ‘doomy, pyschedelic, sludgey and progressive”.
Featuring brain-bending artwork courtesy of Nick Patterson, the EP will be released as a limited edition 12″ (just 300 copies available) and as a digital download.
The band have already caused quite a stir on their own side of the pond, and have notched up plenty of shows on home soil, including a set at Calgary Metal Fest. They are already looking forward to their next recording stint in 2015 and are laying groundwork for a European tour.
