The revered trio Borracho have announced the official reissue of their 2013 album »Oculus« on Savage Magic Records.

Creating a sonic tapestry that transcend boundaries, Washington DC’s Borracho combine elements of classic, doom, and progressive rock to form a signature sound that has resonated with fans since their formation over fifteen years ago.

Drawing on influences that span decades, they combine soaring musicality with subterranean propulsion, encompassing the hard-driven strut of acts like Black Sabbath and Mountain, stoner jams of Clutch and Fu Manchu, and the unmistakable energy of Mastodon and High On Fire.

Following the critically acclaimed release of their fifth studio album Blurring the Lines of Reality this summer, the trio will also revisit a big part of their history with the official tenth anniversary reissue of »Oculus«. Viewed upon by the band as “something of a second debut,” given personnel and directional changes, »Oculus« heralded the arrival of Borracho’s classic and current line-up. Showcasing the fast, purposeful growth that Steve Fisher, Tim Martin and Mario Trubiano undertook in playing as a power trio. Having gone on to release several albums since to commemorate the occasion the band has teamed up once again with Savage Magic Records, one of the original labels who released the record in 2013.

“I’ve known these guys a long time and have been working with them on vinyl releases for over a decade,” explains SMR’s Carey Neill. “To have a chance to reissue »Oculus« and work with them again has been so fun. I’m sure hearing it again on fresh wax will rekindle the excitement about it from back then for a new generation of listeners.”
