All Souls share new single from forthcoming album 

L.A. Desert Rock vets (Josh Homme’s Desert Sessions, Fatso Jetson, Totimoshi) produced by Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Foo Fighters)

Los Angeles quartet All Souls share the first single from their forthcoming sophomore album Songs for the End of the World .Hear “Winds” streaming below:

Winds is epic on all levels. A bruising new release that is compelling and contemplative. The track devours you with its addictive hook and dynamic instrumentation- a ripping riff which just captivates. Heavy, brutal yet delicately charming. A rhythmic journey you need to be a part of.

A stunning animated video for album track “You Just Can’t Win” was released earlier this year. Watch the dark portents via YouTube

All Souls formed in Los Angeles in the winter of 2016 and have gone from playing local gigs to performing in theaters and arenas. Featuring Tony Tornay (Fatso JetsonJosh Homme’s Desert SessionsDeep Dark Robot with Linda Perry) Antonio Aguilar and Meg Castellanos (Totimoshi) and Erik Trammell (Black Elk), they were recently hand-picked to tour with ToolThe Jesus Lizard(the)MELVINS, and Meat Puppets.

All Souls creates songs that are lyrically dark, infused with the band’s unique style and perspective on the state of today’s world. Their music has been described as intelligent, majestic, exciting and original. They are unafraid to bridge into big open spaces discovering new wastelands; ultimately stepping from dark to light.

Throughout 2016, the quartet — Aguilar [vocals, guitar], Castellanos [bass, vocals], Trammell [guitar], and Tornay [drums] — recorded what would become their self-titled full-length debut, All Souls, during intermittent sessions at Sound of Sirens Studio in Los Angeles with producer Toshi Kasai known for his work with Tool, Foo Fighters and (the) MELVINS.
Following tours with the likes of Red Fang, The Sword, Kvelertak, and Torche, the band released All Souls in 2018 via Sunyata — the label founded by iconic Screaming Trees and Mad Season drummer Barrett Martin. Earmarked by Spaghetti Western-style expanse and rough-and-tumble riffing, the music proudly bears the wild wear-and-tear of the nineties Palm Desert scene with a twist of psychedelic voodoo and metallic edge.

For Aguilar and Castellanos, the music spoke to a dormant primal need that harked back to their time in the fan favorite underground mainstay Totimoshi.

All Souls just-completed second album which they recorded in 2019, Songs for the End of the World, reunites them with Kasai. This follow-up recording is an evolution for the band. Aguilar’s distinctive vocals are at times lyrically bleak and deeply personal, set against a musical backdrop that challenges listeners with inventive songwriting and ethereal melodies. Tornay’s explosive drumming matched with Trammell’s innovative guitar and Castellanos’ low end and feminine back-up vocals lend to their power and unique approach. One could say they are connecting the dots between Led Zeppelin to the PixiesSoundgarden to the Cure all the while carving their own road with authenticity. 

Songs for the End of the World will be available on LP, CD and digital on October 2nd, 2020. Pre-orders are available HERE
