Toronto’s Biblical will release their highly-anticipated sophomore LP, The City that Always Sleeps, on September 15, 2017 through New Damage Records in Canada. In advance of the records release, Biblical has just dropped another track off the record titled “Fugue State” via Treble. Listen to the track here:
The City that Always Sleeps follows Biblical’s critically-praised 2014 debut Monsoon Season. The product of almost 2 years in the studio, the new album is a deep dive into sludgy psych rock that explores spaces, textures and tones beyond the outer limits.
Heavy, propulsive and totally hypnotic, The City that Always Sleeps is Biblical at its weapons-grade best, leveraging rhythm and dynamics to explosive effect. Smashing supersaturated guitar riffs, piled-high psych production and the ghostly croon of Sewell unite to create monstrous music that fires off svelte, snaking grooves and turbulent, gorgeous chaos. Molten music for modern times!
Biblical also recently unleashed a video for single, “Mature Themes”, which Sewell calls, “a meditation on buried things; buried ideas, buried feelings, buried people.” See and hear Biblical’s “Mature Themes” here:
Formed in 2010, Biblical is a hard rock band with psych undertones that creates catchy, heavy songs that unfold rather surprisingly. The group features vocalist/bassist Nick Sewell, guitar/synth player Andrew Scott (both Sewell and Scott played with Death From Above 1979 drummer Sebastien Grainger in his Sebastien Grainger & The Mountains project), lead guitarist Matt Mclaren and drummer Jay Anderson (also of Comet Control). Motivation for the band’s name is rooted in the “Ghostbusters” quote from Peter Venkman: “This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions!“
