BrooklynVegan has hosted an exclusive premiere of Ufomammut’s new video for »Vibrhate«, a track from the Italian psychedelic/doom trio’s »Crookhead« EP, nearing Halloween release on their own Supernatural Cat Records.
Presenting three new tracks, the »Crookhead« EP was recorded at Flat Scenario Studio in Italy by Lorenzo Stecconi in July 2022, and was mixed and mastered at Triple Sun by Lorenzo Stecconi. The artwork, as with all Ufomammut releases, was designed and printed by Malleus Rock Art Lab, the graphic design collective which Poia and Urlo are both founding members of. The artwork, with its handprinted and numbered silkscreened cover, adds an artistic touch to the EP. »Crookhead« is a foretaste of the band’s impending tenth album, which will be released when the band celebrates their 25th anniversary in 2024!
Like any good psychedelic trip, the music of Ufomammut has always been inextricably intertwined with visual art, as if to reinforce the relevance and importance of visual art in the band’s music. This is reflected in the new video for »Vibrhate«, also edited by Malleus.

The band reveals with the new song, “»Vibrhate« is the second song taken from the brand new »Crookhead« EP. It’s a short song, which moves rapidly: an instant of madness, as described by the text, which makes us imagine finding ourselves transformed into fire. Our heart beats, kept by burning fingers. Time passes, simmering in our psyche, as we slowly separate from our bodies. And in an instant, it’s all over.”
Writes BrooklynVegan, “It’s more a concise track than the recently-released, nine-minute title track, and it finds the band’s mix of heavy, trippy, and melodic vibes in fine form.”
Ufomammut’s »Crookhead« EP will be released on Halloween, October 31st. The EP will released digitally and in a limited edition vinyl version of 500 copies: 200 on Marble Red Vinyl, 200 in Marble Gold Vinyl, and 100 in clear transparent vinyl which will be available only on the band’s fall tour. Preorders are live at the Supernatural Cat shop HERE.
The band has also booked a Fall tour across Europe in conjunction with the release of »Crookhead«, with dates running from October 29th through December 3rd. Find all upcoming Ufomammut shows listed below and expect new tours to be announced into the new year!
