GOATSNAKE REVEAL DETAILS OF THEIR UPCOMING FULL LENGTH, BLACK AGE BLUES, DUE FOR RELEASE ON SOUTHERN LORD 2ND JUNE 2015
Goatsnake are ready to reveal to the world details of their first full length in fifteen years, and we couldn’t be more excited. The title of the album is Black Age Blues, and shall be released via Southern Lord 2nd June 2015.

Black Age Blues is an instant classic, with each one of the nine songs an anthem, and each of the four band members on top form. Everything is magnified, Pete Stahl’s vocals have never sounded so good, the rhythm section comprised of Greg Rogers on drums and Scott Renner on bass are the driving force on each track, and Greg Anderson’s riffs are heavier than ever before.

Appearing on the album intro to ‘Another River To Cross’ is acoustic guitar courtesy of David Pajo (Slint, Aerial M, Papa M), this track also contains previously released recordings from ‘The River’ by Goatsnake. Piano is played by Mathias Schneeberger and Petra Haden contributes violin and vocals.  Another welcome addition to the album, across multiple tracks are brilliant backing vocals by Dem Preacher’s Daughters – Wendy Moten, Gale Mayes and Andrea Merrit.

Black Age Blues is familiar but nothing here is a repetition of what we’ve heard before, as Goatsnake continue to refine the time-honored ultra-heavy rock that they are infamous for, surpassing even the highest of expectations.

REVIEWS FROM THEIR 2010 ROADBURN PERFORMANCE…

“Goatsnake were received like royalty itself on this triumphant return, showing a Peter Stahl in superb form and that trademark Greg Anderson guitar sound while enthralling the entire main hall of 013. If only all reunions could be like this.”  – ROCK A ROLLA

“All eyes are on Goatsnake’s grandoise return, one of the absolute highlights of the weekend. You can’t go far wrong with ‘Flower Of Disease’ or ‘El Coyote’, but when Pete Stahl’s vocals are so there and Greg Anderson is firing off those swaggering riffs with crystalline perfection, it makes for the kind of memorable show that makes you wish they’d go on with this reunion…” – TERRORIZER
