Santa Cruz doom ‘n rollers DUSTED ANGEL have just completed their debut full-length, and are putting the final touches on this beast, planning for it to be set loose this late this summer.
The burly, self-titled, 7-track melee was put to tape in San Francisco by sludgemonger Billy Anderson (High on Fire, Neurosis, Sleep) in April, mastered at TrakWorx Studios, and will see release mid-late summer on Mankind Records — a division of Revelation Records. A solid year of live shows along the west coast have the members of DUSTED ANGEL conditioned to jam tighter than ever, building upon the rocking hardcore-meets-stoner/doom dynamics fans of the band already love, and taking these songs to massive new levels of crushing groove. The official release date, as well as the album’s track listing and cover art, will all be announced in the coming weeks.
Several strings of California gigs, including record release shows and more, are being scheduled for the coming months building towards the album’s release, and the band will also relocate to the east coast for a battery of shows sometime later this year.
DUSTED ANGEL contains members of crucial skatecore legends Bl’ast, metal experimentalists Spaceboy, sonic mindfuckers Gargantula and more. All longtime friends from time spent in previous bands, or just from growing up in the Santa Cruz skate/surf/slam scene together for the past 20 years, brought the band together in 2008. They’ve done nothing but rock ever since…
Stay tuned for more updates on the album, the shows, the chaos, of DUSTED ANGEL.
