Hippie Death Cult premiere the second single »Hornet Party« taken from the upcoming new album, »Circle Of Days«
Portland heavy rockers Hippie Death Cult premiere the second single »Hornet Party« taken from the upcoming new album, »Circle Of Days«, which will see the light on May 21st, 2021 via Heavy Psych Sounds.
Says the band: “Choosing singles to premiere for this new album has been a bit of a challenge for us. Each song (as well as each song on the »Doom Sessions« split) feels really unique from one another and its tough to say that one really defines the album more than another. I kind of view us as more of an album band rather than a singles band. That being said, »Hornet Party« is the second song on the record following »Red Meat Tricks« so we are going chronologically for this one. I think it might be the shortest song on the album and it’s a total rager both musically and lyrically. It’s probably the most physically demanding song for each of us to perform on the album, but it’s our way of kind of holding up some sort of artistic mirror to the current climate that we live in. Extreme times call for extreme art, so…”

Portland-based rockers Hippie Death Cult team up with The Obelisk to unveil their new single »Hornet Party« today. New album »Circle Of Days« will be issued on May 21st on Heavy Psych Sounds.
Their sophomore album »Circle Of Days« serves as a musical bridge to their critically acclaimed debut »111«, while being a fresh exploration of Hippie Death Cult’s hybrid sound. »Circle Of Days« is a pensive reflection of frustration and hope, experienced as we evolve from the confinements of self indulgence and into a more altruistic mindset. Listeners new to HDC can expect to hear a band that feels familiar yet also unique. Hippie Death Cult are a group with their own musical identity; one that manages to be influenced by great rock and metal bands of the past while not becoming a blueprint of them. The band previously released the album’s opening song and debut single »Red Meat Tricks«, which you can hear on YouTube.
The band will release their new album »Circle Of Days« and reissue their debut LP »111« on May 21st through Heavy Psych Sounds. The »Doom Sessions Vol. 5« split EP with High Reeper will see the light on May 14th.
All three records are available to preorder at this location.
Hippie Death Cult has proven to be one of the more exciting hard rock bands to surface in recent years. Described as a band who “perfectly fuses classic rock sounds with a more modern fuzzy doom sensibility” by Metal Injection and “definitely ones to watch” by Classic Rock Magazine, the Portland, OR quartet only began writing and performing in early 2018, while the roots of the band go much deeper. A stream of musical consciousness swept over guitarist Eddie Brnabic inspiring him to create the band, but it would take a few lineup attempts and a little luck to bring the right members together. With a solid lineup of Laura Phillips, Ryan Moore and Ben Jackson in place, they set out with fierce dedication to rehearse, record and perform a string of successful live shows, securing a deal with Cursed Tongue Records, who released their politically and ecologically-driven debut album »111« in 2019.
2020 was a productive year for the band. They completed material for Magnetic Eye Records with their contribution to the »Best Of Black Sabbath« compilation, music for the independent film »All Gone Wrong«, and signed a record deal with Heavy Psych Sounds Records to release their sophomore full-length in the spring of 2021.
