TRACK PREMIERE: "Ghost Army" by Chicago quintet The Hÿss

The Hÿss, a Chicago quintet born out of a mutual love for staples like Black Sabbath, Fu Manchu and Clutch are set to release their new record entitled “Hound” on June 7th, 2019. Tracked mostly live in the studio, the sound of “Hound” is urgent, hard-hitting rock that's sure to satisfy stoner rock, punk and metal fans alike.

After a test run getting their bluesy, doomy grunge sound onto demo tape in August 2017, the band set about honing their live chops in and around their native Chicago. As a result, the songs on this five-track banger are tight and loose in all the right places, moving comfortably within the spacious realm they’ve forged.

Recorded and mixed by Pete Grossmann (High Priest, Something is Waiting) at Chicago's Bricktop Recording and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Sleep, YOB, Mutoid Man), each song on “Hound is a concise hit of rock n’ roll, updated and expanded.

There's plenty of variety to dig into on the album, and today you can check out the band for yourself, as we premiere the track “Ghost Army”, so turn it up, hit repeat and watch your speakers die.
