Brooklyn, New York sludge rockers, HULL, will release their epic Viking Funeral EP, initially self-released in 2005, on vinyl via Science of Silence Records this spring. The limited edition wax version will come in 180 gram blood red/black swirl vinyl with the song on one side, a laser etched image on the other and a parchment insert with the detailed Viking Funeral saga as well as a sticker and digital download info all wrapped in a Viking Funeral poster and wax-stamped with the band’s logo. To get your hands on the Viking Funeral vinyl and a sampling of some new tunes, don’t miss HULL on their upcoming SXSW tour with Batillus.
HULL, who kicked off the year with a crushing performance opening for doom legends Pentagram, are gearing up for a two week tour with Batillus this March. The tour will run through SXSW and draw to a close at a special Manhattan performance at The Studio at Webster Hall on March 26th with Caltrop and Horseback. The show is sponsored by BrooklynVegan and 1000 Knives. Stay tuned for a full tour announcement in the coming days…
HULL are putting the finishing touches on the follow-up to their critically-acclaimed Sole Lord debut, issued via The End Records in 2009. Their sophomore full-length will be co-produced by Brett Romnes (who played drums on the Viking Funeral EP) and mixed by Billy Anderson (Sleep, High On Fire, Neurosis, EHG, Melvins et al). The record is slated for release this summer with another bout of live dates to follow.
