Portland psychedelic stoner doom outfit Robots Of The Ancient World will release their »3737« full-length via Small Stone Recordings on November 17th, today unveiling the record’s cover art, first single, and preorders!
Robots Of The Ancient World released their Mystic Goddess full-length in 2021. The high-octane recording offered up a hallucinatory sound excursion through a wide range of styles that kept listeners engaged while never losing focus or sacrificing flow. The Sleeping Shaman noted, “This record touches on all aspects of stoner/doom/riff rock, blending them all together, in eyebrow-raising fashion. Desert rock, cosmic swirling psyche, Swedish-style stoner rock, as well as some grungy riffage…” Modern Free press hailed, “a fun ride through a smokey haze,” while BrooklynVegan wrote, “It’s heavy, riffy, and catchy, and if your taste veers towards this corner of guitar-based music, you should definitely check this band out.”

Two years later, the band is back and more potent than ever. With the assistance of renowned engineer, Billy Anderson, Robots Of The Ancient World delivers a relentless rock ‘n’ roll album spanning thirty-seven minutes and thirty-seven seconds. But the title is more than just the duration of the recording, and the band took notice of the number’s significance. There exists a theory in numerology that guardian angels attempt to communicate through divine numbers – specifically the repetition in numbers, and this one specifically is to remind us that, “magic and manifestation are knocking at your door,” and that, “you are about to attract your inner most desires.” Emerging from the pandemic and coping with the loss of loved ones, heartache, and mental anguish, the band decided to harness this energy and pour it into »3737«.
As a result, we are left with an album rich with addictively heavy riffing complimented by pummeling drums, groovy bass lines, and Caleb Weidenbach’s raw and commanding vocals. Robots Of The Ancient World intended to deliver something meaningful, not only to the band but to the world. »3737« is the answer.
In advance of the record’s official release, the band unveils first single, »Hindu Kush« noting bluntly, “We got high and wrote a song about getting high. Turn this one way up, spark a joint and enjoy.”
