Walrus announce debut LP + release ‘Regular Face’ video

      Comments Off on Walrus announce debut LP + release ‘Regular Face’ video

WalrusHalifax’s Walrus will release its debut LP, ‘Family Hangover,’ on June 9th via Dan Mangan’s Madic Records. Described as a band that “could be thrown on a bill between Love and Sabbath,” their first full-length release features a soulful, fuzzed-out mix of swirling vocals, wailing guitar riffs, and Spacemen 3-style drone, all with a laid-back, ’60s-infused vibe.

The band offered a first taste of the album with the jangly lead single Regular Face, and they’ve share a Bob Ross-inspired video for the track (appropriately titled ‘The Joy of Painting with Walrus.’). You can watch the video via YouTube below.
