Los Angeles-by-way-of-Portland stoner, doomed out, mathrock conjurers, WIZARD RIFLE, are very pleased to unveil their brand new full-length in the form of the smoldering five-track Here In The Deadlights.

Set for release via Seventh Rule Recordings later this month, the follow-up to 2012's critically adored Speak Loud Say Nothing full-length, which MetalSucks likened to a "Big Business-ified Melvins fucking a baby into Shellac and then hired Matt Pike as their au pair," was tracked by guitarist Max Dameron over three weeks at Breakfast Studio in Los Angeles, then toiled over for a year, with Billy Anderson (Sleep, Eyehategod, Melvins et al) and Jesse Johnstone sharing mixing duties. The album sees WIZARD RIFLE for the first time as a trio featuring Dameron alongside, drummer Sam Ford, and bassist David Boe pushing its sound into far sludgier realms and reaching new levels of monolithic heaviness, while maintaining a propulsive groove which spins and twists itself into oblivion. Tracks range from two to ten minutes, encompassing everything from sprawling psychedelic epics to surf-sludge noise-romps. Drawing from the sounds of Lightning Bolt, Karp, Sonic Youth, Black Sabbath and High on Fire, WIZARD RIFLE cannot sit still sonically for more than two seconds. Prepare thineself...
