Progressive stoner/sludge trio Druids, hailing from Des Moines (IA), have joined forces with Pelagic Records. This month, the Americans will enter the studio to start recording their third full length effort. It’s planned for 2022 release.
Statement from the label:
“Des Moines, Iowa-based trio Druids have been around for the better part of a decade and released 2 full length albums and 2 EPs so far. The 2019 EP Monument got our attention, not only with its face-melting heavy blues riffs and double picking attacks, sluggish drumming, psychedelic instrumental sections and incredibly powerful, rough yet melodic vocals all conjuring up the muchly cherished vibes of Remission-era Mastodon in a fictitious desert sessions environment… but also with the intriguing story behind: an unnamed protagonist’s journey through mystical worlds of the afterlife, with each song representing a unique spiritual lesson.
“Druids certainly do worship the riff, and so do we. They will be recording their 3rd studio album and follow-up to Monument in May, for a 2022 release via Pelagic Records!”
