Seattle loud rock trio Sandrider presents their latest video for »Alia«. Now playing at Treble, the track comes by way of their latest full-length, »Enveletration«, out now on Satanik Royalty Records.
Writes Treble, “Seattle stoner metal group Sandrider – featuring former members of Akimbo and Tight Bros from Way Back When – released their fourth album »Enveletration«, a heroic slab of big riffs and brawny low-end. Today, the group have shared a new video from the album for its leadoff track, »Alia«. The new clip is edited and directed by Sean Donavan, and shot by Michael Cooper, and it’s a raw, lo-fi performance clip that showcases the band simply tearing it up in a room the old-fashioned way. Which is all you need with a song like this, which goes big on crushing guitars and wrecking-ball heaviness. It’s a monster of a song, and a super fun video at that.”
Adds the band, “We shot this video in the show space of Bar House which unfortunately no longer hosts shows. It’s a huge bummer to lose that space. If anything, the video can be an addendum to the Bar House live show tombstone. Pour one out!”

Recorded at Litho Studios in Seattle by Matt Bayles (Soundgarden, Mastodon, Botch), »Enveletration« proves that Sandrider’s adrenaline-charged fun and unconquerable spirit is yet again a sonic refuge where you’re temporarily invincible. Across its ten tracks, the record captures the utter relief Sandrider – guitarist/vocalist Jon Weisnewski (Akimbo, Nuclear Dudes), bassist Jesse Roberts (The Ruby Doe, Kid Congo Powers, Old Iron), and drummer Nat Damm (Akimbo, Head Like A Kite, Automaton, Tight Bros From Way Back When) – felt when returning to the practice space for the first time after a year of early-pandemic isolation and anxiety. The experience of waking their stacks of amplifiers from their dormancy, feeling the drums rattle their chests and the bass vibrate through the floor, and reveling in the indescribably euphoric return to writing music together in person is palpable. The end result is a nod to Seattle heavy-rock forefathers Soundgarden with their “break my rusty cage and run” attitude, mixed with the unrelenting, stage dive-off-the-bar energy of Refused and noisy noodling of Hot Snakes.
