Stockholm heavy psych and prog rockers JIRM share their ambitious and masterful fifth studio album »The Tunnel, The Well, Holy Bedlam« in its entirety exclusively via The Obelisk, ahead of its official release this Friday 4th March on Ripple Music.

“Under this moniker or the one prior, they have never sounded so rich or accomplished as they do on »The Tunnel, The Well, Holy Bedlam«. And if you find yourself feeling submerged or like you have a kind of aurally-induced vertigo at any point in listening, just understand that it’s all going to make JIRM’s own kind of sense by the time they’re finished.” — The Obelisk

JIRM will make an impact on you: their innovative and highly personal take on psychedelic rock takes the listeners on adventurous excursions and aims to broaden their consciousness. Now they return with their fifth album »The Tunnel, The Well, Holy Bedlam«. With tracks recorded one by one in five different studios across Sweden, the end result is a 50-minute epic skyrocketed by a spine-shivering performance from frontman Karl Apelmo, on top of relentlessly hammering guitars, soaring saxophone solos and pervasive synth layers: a massive liftoff from reality that is sure to appeal to fans of Yob, REZN or Elephant Tree. Watch their brand new video »Liquid Covenant«.

JIRM »The Tunnel, The Well, Holy Bedlam« out March 4th on Ripple Music

The band was formed in 2004 under the name Jeremy Irons & the Ratgang Malibus, by Micke Backendal and Karl Apelmo. In 2007, they were joined by Henke Persson and Viktor Källgren to seal the definitive line-up. JIRM has toured extensively, from Sao Paulo (Brazil) to Pleszew (Poland), positioning themselves as one of the hardest working and most prolific outfits of the underground heavy rock scene. They decided to change the name to JIRM when releasing their fourth full-length ‘Surge Ex Monumentis’ in 2018, a record that brimmed with newfound energy and has been described as “both a roller-coaster of emotion and a cinematic triumph” by Echoes & Dust and “a blissful mixture of Soundgarden at their grooviest and Pink Floyd” by Mass Movement.

Their upcoming fifth album »The Tunnel, The Well, Holy Bedlam« has been recorded in a true pandemic style: the tracks were recorded one by one, in five different studios across Sweden. It’s been a challenge both from a songwriting and technical point of view. However, the end result sounds bigger and better than ever, with no holds barred. There is one thing you can be absolutely sure of with JIRM’s upcoming fifth album: “it’s not a joke this time, I’m leaving reality for sure”. »The Tunnel, The Well, Holy Bedlam« will be available on March 4th through Ripple Music.
