Brimstone Howl to Release New Album

From Alive Natural Sound:

We`re proud to announce the upcoming album release from Nebraska`s 60`s influenced garage and old school punks Brimstone Howl. The follow-up to their Dan Auerbach produced debut, the band enlisted Detroit`s legendary producer Jim Diamond to man the boards for their sophomore effort, We Came in Peace, hitting stores September 2.

Led by charismatic singer/songwriter John Ziegler and guitarist extraordinaire Nick Waggoner, with Calvin Retzlaff on drums, the boys traveled to Ghetto Recorders in Detroit for a very productive recording session with the legendary Jim Diamond. Described by NME as "Beatles-headed psych-nerds with a taste for razor sharp snake-rock, We Came in Peace is the follow-up to Guts of Steel (Alive 2007) an album hailed as "unholy hot-wiring of the Sonics, the Damned and the Blues Explosion" (Magnet) and "cranked lo-fi blues rock from Nebraska`s hoodlums" (Uncut).

Despite its cryptic title, We Came in Peace is another fun explosion of fuzz and American-gothic chit-chatter, with "weird fictional adventure stories, and beginner blues guitar lessons from mongoloids," as they like to describe it. The album is packed with great songs, including the amazing power punk pop "A Million Years," the Cramps-worshiper "Child Of Perdition" or the VU-psych influenced "Easy to Dream."

Brimstone Howl will begin a US tour in September, followed by Europe in October with additional dates being added through next year. Currently, the band has been sharing stages with fellow travelers Jay Reatard (who produced one of their first singles) and the Black Lips, among many others, gathering reviews such as this one: "Pumping with hot red blood, they slopped their rock & roll around the room: dirty, gritty, just right. For the finale, the four players became two piggyback stacks. The playing continued as the dueling human towers wobbled about the room, knocking into the lampshades and ending up in a heap of bodies on the floor and a blistering wall of noise. Now THAT`S how you do it." (Orlando Weekly).

The band will perform at Mondo Hollywood on August 10 with The Electric Prunes. The Mondo Hollywood line up includes Mary Weiss, Magic Christian, The Loons, and many others.
