BEEHOOVER – The Devil And His Footmen
mainstream record sixty-five
available in CD and LP format. LP is limited to 500 copies worldwide
Beehoover are back, breaking a three year studio silence with an outrageous deluge of din in the form of new album The Devil And His Footmen, due for a release on Exile On Mainstream.
The multi-faceted clawing at the stoner doom mantle which defined their 2010 full length, Concrete Catalyst, has been taken to pastures fresh; self-recorded behind the locked doors of their own studio, Beehoover’s latest is a swirl of raw, sultry tones and rumbling octaves that strike chords with braggadocio 70’s hard rock as much as it does the thunderous rumble of Black Cobra and the jutting angles of Unsane. Beehoover are at their most rocking here, tangling the long hair of the headbangers with all the genres of beard in one matted toupee of oddball rhythms and histrionic vocals.
Formed in 2003, the German have released three albums to date, capitalising on their distinctive drum and bass concoction. The Devil And His Footmen will be the fourth album by Beehoover released on Exile On Mainstream, and is available as CD, LP and digital.
The Devil And His Footmen buzzes with eccentric electric – grit your teeth and enjoy the sting.
Oh, and keep following your leaders

“Everybody else can pretty much fuck off … Beehoover are one of the purist bands around … We need more bands like Beehoover in the world.” SkullsNBones.com
