EARTH SHIP – full album stream
Drawing inspiration from opposites – RESONANT SUN will take you on a hard-boiled trip through a vast array of emotional oddities. We can’t wait to finally show you this filthy, fuzz-laden doom monster and hope that you’ll love it as much as we do.
Go let the fuzz take you!"
With new drummer Sebastian Grimberg on board the EARTH SHIP, the band continues an evolution towards more stripped down arrangements and tunes that stun through simplicity and heaviness, an evolution that began with 2014’s Withered album. While the occasional clean vocals remind of TORCHE or ALICE IN CHAINS, Jan’s range stretches far out into the harsh spheres of bands like MANTAR or WEEDEATER. The strikingly fat production of the album was done by the band leader himself, at his own HIDDEN PLANET STUDIOS in Berlin, where all EARTH SHIP albums to date were made. „We’re not really keen to record with someone else or somewhere else“, bass player Sabine Oberg says. „We’re just too comfy at our studio, which is also our home, and Jan knows what he wants and how to get there, straight to the point. Having someone else involved would just distract from the course, and make things more dif ficult“.
Resonant Sun will be released on October 5, right in time for an European tour supporting CROWBAR, and a set of German headline dates with support by Denmark’s RISING in November.
The CD version comes with an exclusive bonus track. The additional EARTH SHIP track "Swoon" plus a cover of „Children Of The Revolution“ by T-Rex will be available digitally only.
