Announce new album Everybody Come To Church
Due October 9th via Louder Than War Records
“The perfect storm of…oddness.” Kerrang!
“Make Temples, Pond et al sound about as safe as a Taylor Swift remix album.” NME
Evil Blizzard are an enigma. A mystery. A baffling conundrum. Four bass players, a singing drummer, an array of rubber masks that will give both children and adults sleepless nights for days on end, laying there, sweating, convulsing. What the fuck is that…? Blizzpig?
In 2014, debut album The Dangers Of Evil Blizzard was unleashed upon the world and it’s sonic grooves and unrelenting weirdness quickly captured, and held hostage, the minds and imaginations of freaks across the land. Landing on the cover of The Guardian’s entertainment supplement, and warping the brains of Kerrang’s readership, the five-piece won accolades and nervous glances wherever they went.
And they’re back. Having been approached by Richard McNamara from West Yorkshire indie band Embrace, fresh from having his mind reduced to mulch after witnessing Evil Blizzard in the flesh, McNamara was so blown away by what he had seen and heard that he offered to record the bands next album.
“He pretty much begged to produce us,” admits bassist and keyboard player Filthydirty. “Initially we were a little hesitant as there seemed to be few musical similarities between the two bands but after several meetings it was apparent that Richard had some incredible ideas and a vision of how to capture the chaos and energy of the live shows; something that was lacking on our debut album. Evil Blizzard thrives on chaos and it was great to have a Captain at the wheel.”
Recorded live in one day with minimal overdubs at Magnetic North Studios, Everybody Come To Church is a fierce spontaneous outburst of evil noise. With only four songs written before entering the studio, the rest of the album just ‘happened’ around ideas they’d had knocking around – to date, Evil Blizarrd have only ever rehearsed four times in four years. Unconstrained and unplanned, Everybody Come To Church features eight tracks of brooding, sinister psychedelic rock that will melt your mind and soul. You have been warned.
