Jess And The Ancient Ones stream a brand new single »Love Zombi« taken from the upcoming album, »Vertigo«, out on May 21st, 2021 via Svart Records.

Says the band: “We have a new single to offer you. This is »Love Zombi«. Out now via all imaginable channels.
With organ-led swagger and a freak-beat to raise the dead and make them dance, »Love Zombi« is a graveyard smash. Main-man songwriter/guitarist Thomas Corpse describes it perfectly when he says ‘In this track one can maybe hear eerie echoes of funk lurking in the root. The feel of the middle part leans towards European old school horror movies’. »Love Zombi« is Jess And The Ancient Ones back to their creepy, catchy rocking best, live-wired and undead!”

Tracklisting:
01. Burning Of The Velvet Fires
02. World Paranormal
03. Talking Board
04. Love Zombi
05. Summer Tripping Man
06. What’s On Your Mind
07. Born To Kill
08. Strange Earth Illusion

From Svart Records:

The Savonian occult rock behemoth Jess And The Ancient Ones have emerged with a new album! Their brand of heavy guitar and organ-led swagger has progressed from the twin guitar metal blast of yesteryear to Jess And The Ancient Ones’ very own take on soulful late sixties garage psychedelia. Titled »Vertigo«, the new record is set for release on Svart Records on May 21st this year with a foreboding sound of lysergic doom.

What began on the previous record, »The Horse & Other Weird Tales« is taken further and deeper, towards a conclusion on »Vertigo«. Songwriter and guitarist Thomas Corpse comments, “To me this album sounds like a dark horse – a brother to the previous album. There’s a strange ominous feeling that hovers upon the entire album, maybe it’s the feeling of nostalgia that’s arising from the lyrics.”

Wrapped in a crude tornado-adorned old school sleeve, the album’s eight tracks bubble in a boiling cauldron of vintage pop culture influence and occult-tinged paranoia. Ranging from the softly fiery opening track »Burning Of The Velvet Fires« to the almost heavy metal-ish nihilistic banger »Born To Kill«, »Vertigo« is a spiraling journey of heavy Finnish psych rock at its finest.

The first single cut »Summer Tripping Man« is a heavy hitting prophecy of doom condensed into the classic three minute garage format, and it has already become a steady part of the band’s live set long before it was captured on tape. The single comes accompanied by an animated music video, created by Giuliano Di Girolamo.
