Electric Valley Records presents BongBongBeerWizards’ 3rd album, »Ampire«, due out on 24 June 2022 on four different editions of vinyl and digital formats.

Emerged from Dortmund in 2017, BongBongBeerWizards initially began as a fun-time drinking side project. Upon releasing the first album, »Bong Hit Wonders«, BBBW took an entirely new direction, revamping with a new lineup and focusing more on songwriting and building sounds, ultimately becoming more of a serious project than that of the past and bringing more fun than ever. Since their 2020’s release »Albong«, the three-piece has been creating intense live sounds, droning atmospheres, heavy meditational riffs, and vocals that echo through deep endlessness. Based on the foundation of bass, guitar, and drums, BBBW uses different instruments from synths to saxophone and trumpets to tons of amps and effects – basically, everything that creates impact and summons the endless waves for the sonic end time.

Says the band: “We are influenced by bands like Pink Floyd, St Erik, Bomg, ODD, Dark Buddha Rising, Slomatics, Radien and all different other kinds of music. Our live sound volume levels got hardly influenced by a show we had together with our old bands and Cult of Occult back in 2016; they were blasting our ears like no others with an enormous backline. Now we are pretty good to achieve the same physical pressure, not least thanks to our Guitarist Jan, who is building cabinets known as Cosmic Terror.”

On the new album »Ampire«, BBBW intended upon creating weird film music for a concept running in their heads: the old story about the good fighting the bad, the “one true evil.” Here, the counterparts of the evil are gathered on the highest summit in the form of priests, and the album tells of an endless pilgrimage towards the mountain summit where choirs are summoning the endless waves. Through the three lengthy songs, the record flourishes BBBW’s unusual and unearthly “heavy meditational doom” brand.

BBBW is confirmed for Nekropolis Festival in Munich in November 2022.
