"Infectiously catchy, and right in the middle of the sludge, pop, and punk Venn diagram that is so ingrained in the history of Pacific Northwest heavy music." -- Metal Sucks
Portland, OR trio Gaytheist share the lead single from their forthcoming 5th album today via Brooklyn Vegan. Hear & share "The Dark Deep" HERE. (Direct Bandcamp.)
The band plays a handful of Pacific Northwest shows around the release date in April, followed by more extensive North American dates in summer. Please see current shows below.
Gaytheist return Spring 2020 with their 5th full length record and their finest work to date, How Long Have I Been On Fire? Following several years of living on opposite ends of the country, the band reassembled in Vancouver, Washington and delved into a writing frenzy.
Once again under the watchful eye of master engineer Stephan Hawkes, Gaytheist recorded all of HLHIBOF on the last weekend of June, 2019. Thirteen songs of KABOOM rock, depression anthems and various attempts at communication. Feedback, rhythm and speed, it is an amalgamation of punk, hardcore, metal, and wild rock.
Incredibly catchy leads and soaring vocals are carried by subatomic, weighty bass grumblings while a tornado of drum wailing knocks the listener on their ass. Oh, and they're really funny too. Who says metal has to be so serious all the time?
How Long Have I Been On Fire? will be available on LP and digital on April 10th, 2020 via Hex Records. Pre-orders are available HERE.
