Los Angeles, California based occult stoner rock duo Harlot Church is streaming their debut EP, entitled »V«, which was just released on September 8th, 2022 via Future Noise Recordings.
01. Prophet Butcher Man
Apparently formed in Stoke-on-Trent, U.K, sometime in 2013. Harlot Church agreed to release music through Future Noise Recordings back in 2014. A long promise is finally fulfilled. Soon after forming support slots for high profile names such as, High On Fire, Hang The Bastard & Crowbar were etched in stone as were a few headlining shows of their own, but where H.C have been is anybody’s guess. They now emerge on U.K based label Future Noise Recordings with the band relocated to Los Angeles, USA. Harlot Church lists only fellow Stoke bands Rise To Thunder and Bleak Zero as influences.
Although lyrically the same, musically it’s very different from their previous sound of a heavily punk influenced desert rock. This new darker maturity has a total disregard for the boring formulas, or lifeless productions, instead channeling an experimental swagger of old telepathic energy locked into an audible groove, while most arrogantly sitting on the edge of a complete mess, constantly putting their hands in the fire.
Heavy drug use contributed to the making of this music.
