The Sludgelord News: The Atomic Bitchwax announce new album details

New Jersey's legendary, riff-centric power trio THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX (aka TAB) will release its long-awaited, sixth full length LP, Gravitron on April 21 via Tee Pee. Filled with gargantuan riffs and jaw-dropping psych sonics, Gravitron was recorded at Shorefire Studios (Blondie, Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi) in Long Branch, NJ and was mastered by Alan Douches (Motörhead, Tombs).

Since their formation in 1993, THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX has inspired hundreds of developing rock and metal bands, but no group of musicians has come close to matching TAB's unique style of fun, frenetic and formidable R'N'R! Now featuring TWO members of MONSTER MAGNET -- bassist/vocalist Chris Kosnik and drummer Bob Pantella -- alongside shred-tastic gunslinger Finn Ryan, the band has perfected its unique style of NYC hard rock that High Times appropriately tabbed, "thunder-boogie".
On Gravitron, THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX's Rush-like riff mazes and carpal-tunnel-inducing riffs are on full display; every note bleeds with urgency. There's far too much exuberant energy on the record to lazily tag this as "Stoner Rock"; this is high-octane, '70s-based hard rock infused with stabs of psychedelia and landslides of Tommy Bolin-inspired guitar heroics! Gravitron is an A-level masterclass in bad ass Rock 'N' Roll and cements the THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX as an undeniable force in today's heavy music landscape.

Gravitron track listing:

1.) Sexicutioner
2.) No Way Man
3.) It's Alright
4.) War Claw
5.) Coming in Hot
6.) Fuckface
7.) Proto World
8.) Down With the Swirl
9.) Roseland
10.) Ice Age "Hey Baby
