The Sludgelord Song Premiere - "Both Barrells" by Gorilla

By: Aaron Pickford

Gorilla vs Grifter is the second in a planned series of split albums released through awesome Birmingham based label HeviSike, following 2015's Mos Generator // Stubb split release. 

The two English powerhouses join the Birmingham-based imprint at an exciting time following the label's launch in late 2014. Having followed and supported this independent label since its inception, we have reviewed Chicago psychedelic rockers Dead Feathers and albums from Elevators to The Grateful Sky, Prophets of Saturn in that short space of time, indeed they have slowly carved their own unique niche as a standalone boutique vinyl only label.  Therefore it was without equivocation when Jay from Hevisike asked if we’d like to host a stream for Gorilla’s track “Both Barrells” from this forthcoming release.  So check it out below and let us know what you think

Gorilla are no strangers to fans of heavy-as-hell rock n’ roll. The no-nonsense power trio, led by The Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell frontman Johnny Gorilla, have released three albums since forming in the late 1990s.  Gorilla vs Grifter  will be available as a limited edition vinyl record in two colours and pre-orders start from Friday 1st April ahead of its 15th April release date.
Colour vinyl options:

Gold - (limited to 100 copies, hevisike.com exclusive)
Yellow / Blue Marbled
