In support of their fourth studio album, The Devil And His Footmen (Exile On Mainstream) Beehoover announce a UK tour in the spring of 2014 which marks their first time touring the UK since 2011.
Label manager Andreas Kohl had this to say about the Beehoover live experience,
“One of my most loved descriptions in music history for a tonal impact is Southern Lord’s comparison for Warhorse’s sound with the feeling of being beaten with a wet matress. For Beehoover I could pack a gargantuan pile of descriptions on the table, ultimately I would describe my listening experience like being wrapped in plastic foil, unable to move but struck in awe facing an enormous T34, while a Stalin organ is shooting roses across the tundra, explosives that draw a dreamy coloured fireworks on the night sky”…Kohl continues…In the crowd, what you see is hair, just hair behind the drums and contrails from swirling drumsticks. Centered is one barefoot Urviech covering the room with noises you can’t escape from, breathing, drinking, eating and farting riffs in a quantity and variety that 15 bands could live and ride off for the next one hundred years. Rhythms, riffs, beats, songs, sounds – so emotional, glowing in urgency, blasting on your senses so that you get an overdose of endorphins just from watching this monstrous mother of all concerts, exploding like an earthquake that rips continents apart. Yes, this is what it sounds like: I love this band. Every single time I see them. I pity you if you’ve never had the chance – make your life complete and take the chance now. If there’s one band you’ve really got to see EVER – it’s these guys!” – meanwhile Beehoover themselves keep things short and simple by commenting “Beehoover will kick some serious ass in March.” – I know I can’t argue with that!

Beehoover’s latest album is a swirl of raw, sultry tones and rumbling octaves that strike chords with braggadocio 70’s hard rock as much as it does the thunderous rumble of Black Cobra and the jutting angles of Unsane. Beehoover are at their most rocking here, tangling the long hair of the headbangers with all the genres of beard in one matted toupee of oddball rhythms and histrionic vocals.

The Devil And His Footmen buzzes with eccentric electric – grit your teeth and enjoy the sting.

Listen to the tracks ‘Dear Mammoth’: and ‘My Mixtapes Suck Big Time’: and for the full album stream below-


Pleasingly, the twosome’s blend of muscular bowel-rattling fuzz and Krautrock-tinged percussive throb has coalesced around their most satisfying and memorable tunes to date here…The outcome owes as much to Kyuss and Stinking Lizaveta as it does to Unsane, as the laidback strut of 70s hard rock and the asymmetrical sprawl of math rock win through over these Germans’ more brutish instincts.” – CLASSIC ROCK
A veritable scheiße-sturm … the Fatherland has sired some mighty and malevolent rock bastards among all the post-industrial slop.” – ROCKSOUND
Beehoover constantly push against the limitations of their setup designing riff after elemental riff of stoner rock, embellished with baroque
curlicues…this is their strongest to date, dragging in boogie, doom and – ye gods – folk!
Everybody else can pretty much f*ck off … Beehoover are one of the purist bands around … We need more bands like Beehoover in the world.– SKULL N BONES
A record that Mr Bungle is bound to have on his ipod.– TERRORIZER
Concrete Catalyst is one of those truly rare things: a record that you expect little, if anything of, yet the vision, execution and – importantly – the sheer heaviness of which completely f*cking blows you away.– THE QUIETUS
Huge, inventive and ever-changing, things clink and clank together like the giant cogs driving forward some gargantuan war machine.– ROCK A ROLLA
Beehoover’s new album is like a giant tusked slug slapping the earth with its gloriously sludgy tail, causing violent sonic vibrations to rattle through the earth, cracking it to its core, laying blissful waste to all places and things.– SLEEPING SHAMAN
Its rawness and tempestuous appetite for noise and honest but abrasive invention food for a certain sort hunger, but once united Beehoover provides a striking and invigorating intrusion you only want more of.– RINGMASTER
These riffs could cause total enlightenment or they could melt your face off like the Nazi in Indiana Jones. This is metal not to be trifled with … Simply, earth-shatteringly awesome.” – SUBBA CULTCHA
Mammoth in length…mammoth in sound.” – SOUNDSHOCK
