Psychedelic, stoner doom outfit Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard have announced that they have completed their next album which will be released early next year via New Heavy Sounds. The band will also be road testing some of this new material on a short run of UK shows at the end of this month.
Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard have been holed up in their Wrexham bunker completing their next album for most of this year. The final part of their trilogy, this phase of their intergalactic voyage will touch down early next year via New Heavy Sounds.
However, following their appearance at Robert Smith’s Meltdown, this year, MWWB are heading out on a select few dates to showcase material from their upcoming LP. The band comment, ‘we think this album is a real progression but we’ve still kept the elements that make MWWB what it is. There’s more of a sci-fi element to this record and it’s even more experimental and trippy. It’s a cool evolution from our last album, Y Proffwyd Dwyll’ we think and very cool to play live’.
It will be heavy, it will be ethereal and it will be cosmic. Catch them here:

“They’ve already managed the near-impossible: finding their own sound. The weighty, distortion-drenched riffs hunker down and trudge like Windhand and Conan (or a certain other Wizard band), but the vocals—those wondrous vocals!—erupt from the mire like a beam of light – Noisey
“Noeth Ac Anoeth blearily surveys the midpoint between an Electric Wizard-style assault and knowingly cerebral drone evangelism.” – Classic Rock

‘Truly stunning’ – The Quietus
‘A deep, dark world that’s more than worth exploring’ – Drowned in Sound
