London’s other-worldly groovy stoners Purple Kong have announced their first full-length album »Blood Lightning«.

This is the band’s first full work after two EPs, which received great acclaim in 2016 and 2018 respectively. »Blood Lightning« is the culmination of the writing process in the intervening years that saw the band overcome the challenges of Covid and recruit a new drummer.

All tracks were recorded and mixed by Wayne Adams (Petbrick/Iggor Cavalera, Green Lung, Wasted Death) at Bear Bites Horse Studios in London and mastered by Ade Emsley (Orange Amplification, Iron Maiden) at Table of Tone Mastering.

Three aliens surveying the planet. They’re not impressed…

“Heavily influenced by Black Sabbath and Sleep, a wild rampage of 70s proto-metal guitar riffs and distortions.” (Stoner Mountain Blog)

“Thunderous heavy doom/sludge groove populated by deeply, and we are talking deeply, distorted bass and titanic drumming over which howling guitar and powerful, cleanly delivered vocals are laid.” (Desert Psychlist)

“The band are always immense fun to watch, with their ballsy stoner that’s packed with attitude and peppered with splashes of outer-space synths to cut through the chunky groove of the riffs and the venomous, ultra-cool delivery of vocals.” (Astral Noize)
