Ripple Music is pleased to announce the official release of ‘Talismana’, the long-awaited debut album from one of America’s most exciting and downright badass psychedelic metal bands, Sweat Lodge. Having yet to find a record release from Ripple Music we haven’t gone crazy over, once again this is going to be a much anticipated album from Sweat Lodge.
Seizing on the southern grooves of Fu Manchu, Saint Vitus and the blues-driven majesty of 70s legends Mountain and fellow Texans ZZ Top, across ‘Talismana’ – riff after punishing riff, howl after soulful howl – the vintage sound of rock ‘n’ roll reigns supreme, sparked through an engine of uncompromising youth. As anyone who witnessed the band’s debut TV appearance on Last Call With Carson Daly in March will testify, charismatic front man and vocalist Cody Lee Johnston’s ability to bring it on home is hypnotic. Backed by the gnarled bass fuzz of Austin Shockley, the Bonham-esque drum play of Caleb Dawson and guitar interplay of Javier Gardea and Dustin Anderson, the band will be unstoppable in 2015 and ‘Talismana’ an essential record for fans of the genre.
As well as the album, the band have also released a new single ‘Slow Burn’ which is a surefire stoner anthem of mammoth proportions.
‘Talismana’ by Sweat Lodge will be released on 7th August on Ripple Music.
