On October 21st, 10-piece instrumental outfit The Budos Band will return with Burnt Offering, their first new album in over four years. Due out on Daptone, the follow-up to 2010’s The Budos Band III was recorded at their longtime Staten Island studio with Tom Brenneck (Charles Bradley, Cee-Lo Green).
According to a press release, the 10-track effort is “dripping with the psychedelic sounds of early heavy metal fused with the tight-knit propulsion of Fela Kuti” and “sparked by their love of Black Sabbath and Pentagram.” That’s the totally Sabbath-esque album artwork above.
Our first look at Burnt Offering comes in the form of “The Sticks”, an ominous track that packs snarling grooves and a rather head-banging-worthy breakdown. Listen in below.
Burnt Offering Tracklist:
01. Into the Fog
02. The Sticks
04. Shattered Winds
05. Black Hills
06. Burnt Offering
07. Trail Of Tears
08. Magus Mountain
10. Turn and Burn
In support of the new album, The Budos Band have lined up a short U.S. tour.
