Swiss three-piece stoner rock band Hook, Line and Sinker return with their new EP »Leichenwagen«
Fribourg, Switzerland based three-piece stoner rock band Hook, Line and Sinker return with their new EP, »Leichenwagen«, released on March 12th, 2023.
02. How Many More Shots
03. Coprolite Church
04. Monuments Will Fall
»Leichenwagen« (“Hearse”) is the new EP by the trio Hook, Line and Sinker. The four tracks were recorded during a residency in 2021 at the Ebullition with Vincent Sudan. Two years later, the tracks were unearthed and dusted off at Studio de la Fonderie, where HL&S recorded vocals and some guitar overdubs with Sacha “Love” Ruffieux. The basis of the tracks are the simultaneously recorded live instruments, on which a good pinch of fuzz and rage was peppered.
In the “Hearse” you feel cramped, helpless and lost. The EP stands as an angry response against this feeling and against the ever-criticising society as well as the blind following of religion and faith. Hard breaks, wild psychedelic passages and more fuzz than your eardrums can stand can be found on the four tracks. The follow-up to »Rough Jazz« is even more merciless, furious and offers an exciting mix between stoner rock and heavy psych.
