Published Sep 25, 2015The Prairies are meeting the Maritimes on a new split LP, as Saskatoon psych titans Shooting Guns have announced that they're teaming up Moncton fusionists ZAUM for a joint release. Himalaya to Mesopotamia will be out on November 6 through Sunmask Records/Pre-Rock Records/Superbob Records.
Although the whole thing consists of just four songs, they're all epic in length. Shooting Guns' three songs on the A-side are each more than six minutes, while ZAUM's single-song B-side is a whopping 19 minutes.
According to an announcement, Shooting Guns are "hard at work fortifying the heavy end of the psychedelic spectrum, haunting the foggy moor between Sabbath-styled doom riffery and heavy pulse-riding krautrock."
ZAUM, meanwhile, are said to offer "a monolithic doomy mantra based meditative experience forged by bass and drums interwoven with sitar and synth textures."
A short trailer video can be seen at the bottom of this page.
Himalaya to Mesopotamia will be available on hand-numbered "amberstone" coloured vinyl and on cassette. Vinyl copies are available to order right here.
Himalaya to Mesopotamia:
A1. Shooting Guns - "Super Himalaya"
A2. Shooting Guns - "Dirty Needle"
A3. Shooting Guns - "Ultimate Nullifier"
B1. ZAUM - "The Serpentshrine"
