The Sludgelord News: DESERT STORM confirm UK tour with Hang The Bastard

DESERT STORM have today confirmed that they'll be hitting the road with Hang The Bastard next month, on a short UK tour. The announcement follows the release of the Oxford riff-hounds' third studio album, entitled Omniscient.

The band commented: "We are stoked to be joining join Hang The Bastard on their UK headline tour next month. We've all been fans of them for a while now and we're sure it's going to be fun run of dates. Come along and catch us at a show!"


Mon 16 March     Liverpool - Shipping Forecast
Tue 17 March      Milton Keynes - Craufurd Arms
Wed 18 March     Sheffield - Corporation
Fri 20 March        Birmingham - Oobleck
Sat 21 March       Swansea - Sin City

The five piece band entered the studio in 2014, to lay down the tracks for Omniscient with Jamie Dodd at Flesh & Bone Studio, Hackney, before the producer - who counts Orange Goblin among his credits - returned to The Animal Farm studio in south London, where it was mixed.

The follow up to 2013's critically acclaimed 'Horizontal Life', which was mastered by Billy Anderson (Melvins, Sleep, Cathedral) was released on 26th January 2015. What may appear to the untrained eye to be a straight up stoner rock album, has a bluesy depth and at times veers towards a folk-tinged acoustic edge.  The band will be showing off their diversity on stage when they play Desert Fest in London this coming April, alongside the likes of Sleep, Red Fang, and Orange Goblin.

DESERT STORM will appeal to fans of The Sword, Clutch, Down and Torche. 'Omniscient' is their third album - their heaviest, yet most diverse release to date. The band have notched up many high profile support slots over the years, including tours with Karma To Burn and Nashville Pussy.

Omniscient is available digitally via iTunes, or via the Blindsight Records Bandcampdigitally or on CD. Vinyl will follow via Secret Law Recordings
