FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Borracho to tour Northeast US,
play Stoner Hands of Doom XII,
and premier track
Washington, DC, August 3, 2012 — Capital city stoner rock torch-bearers Borracho will end out the summer of 2012 on the road, kicking off a Labor Day weekend road trip in their hometown before visiting Philadelphia, Boston, and capping it off with an appearance at the Stoner Hands of Doom XII (SHoD) festival in New London, CT.
For the unconverted, Borracho’s 2011 debut Splitting Sky made a strong impression, hauling in gushing review after review, and boasting inclusion in ten end-of-year top album lists. Upon its release The Washington Post, gushed “Borracho has mastered the delivery of an infectious hook. ‘Splitting Sky’ is bursting with catchy riffs and skilled playing.” Heavy Planet proclaimed it “an instant classic,” The Ripple Effect dubbed it “an epic, earsplitting fuzz-fest,” and The Sludgelord predicted “This album is going to be a classic of the genre. No question about it.” The band has since released a 7″ single and video for album standout track “Concentric Circles,” and an enchanting video for “All in Play,” and plan a 10″ single/EP release for late this year.
This will be the band’s second appearance at the SHoD festival, and the Tres Hombres tour will bring them to the city of brotherly love and New England for the first time. They’ll be joined in DC and Philly by One Inch Giant from Gothenburg Sweden, Philly and Boston by Black Thai from Boston, and Boston and SHoD by Fire Faithful from Richmond VA. Rest assured, every single stop will bring a kinetic display of fuzz and fury, matching geographically diverse bands who can crush skulls in their own unique ways. Don’t miss this show when it comes to your town.
Today The Obelisk premiers a previously unreleased live recording of the epic “Grab the Reins.” Visit The Obelisk now for the exclusive stream. The track will be on the B-side of a new 10” single for Splitting Sky closing crusher “Plunge/Return” coming out on Strange Magic Records later this year. Borracho also contributed a track to a new digital compilation, “The Ripple Effect Presents: Volume One – Head Music.” A previously unreleased live version of “All in Play” is available exclusively on the comp, and the entire collection is a free download. Both tracks were recorded in Washington, D.C. in December 2011 by Frank Marchand, who manned the faders for the recording of Splitting Sky. These live tracks offer fans who have not had an opportunity to see the band perform live a chance to hear how they bring it on stage.
