ECSTATIC VISION Ink Deal With RelapseTuesday, 2nd September 2014
Relapse Records has announced the signing of Philadelphia, PA heavy psych quartet ECSTATIC VISION (Doug Sabolick – guitars / B3 / vocals, Michael Field Connor – bass, Jordan Crouse – drums / percussion, Muffinman – percussion). Formed earlier this year, the group has quickly made a name for themselves in Philly, having already played numerous high profile shows.
The group is kicking off a short run of tour dates tomorrow in Harrisonburg, VA including a stop at Meltasia Festival in Lafayette, GA alongside Black Lips, Nik Turner’s Hawkwind, Danava and many more. Ecstatic Vision will complete the recording of their full-length debut upon their return which will be released via Relapse in early 2015.
Frontman Doug Sabolick comments on the new material:
“We are currently recording our debut album at various studios around Philly. The album is a great mix of trance inducing primitive African tribal meets heavy psych a la Hawkwind. We are stoked to be working hand in hand with Relapse to bring this unique album to fruition and bring our brand of heavy psych to the masses.”
