WINDHAND Announce Release Date for Forcefield Debut
Richmond, VA may be known primarily for its wicked thrash and crust punk scenes, but there's something evil lurking within that doomed old capital. Psyched-out ultra-Sabbathian amplifier worshippers WINDHAND, who boast ex-members of heavy riffters FACEDOWNINSHIT and ALABAMA THUNDERPUSSY within their ranks, have risen. On the heels of a recent Northeast tour and numerous triumphant local appearances, WINDHAND will be releasing their self-titled debut LP via Richmond's own Forcefield Records. Slated for an October 25th release, the record will be available in a limited gatefold pressing of violet wax, and was recorded/mixed by Garrett Morris (PARASYTIC, BASTARD SAPLING) at the Dark Room with Slipped Disc Audio's Bill McElroy (PENTAGRAM, AVAIL, ALABAMA THUNDERPUSSY) handling mastering duties.
I have their demo from last year but here's some music for ya to check out:
WINDHAND was formed in 2008 in Richmond, VA and self-released their first demo in 2010. Original drummer, Jeff Loucks, parted ways with the band in early 2010, with current drummer Ryan Wolfe joining shortly thereafter. Their mammoth debut LP will be available for preorder on September 27th - stay (down)tuned!
