It’s been dreamed about, thought about, talked about, and now it’s finally happened. Pop Sludge princes of Miami, FL, FLOOR, have finally consummated their reunion with a brand new release slated to come out April 29, 2014 here in the United States. If you’re lucky enough to live anywhere else in the world you get it four days earlier: On the 25th.
Steve Brooks has been a long time influence on anyone in the Florida metal scene, and nation wide, who looks to redefine and blur the lines of genre bigotry. Go back and listen to any project this man has been a part of and I dare you to define it one word. For me that one word is “impossible”.
Below you can dip your ear morsels into the splendid fondue that is Sister Sophia off Oblation. I really can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of this album, and you can be sure I’ll be pre-ordering the blue, mint, and grey splatter vinyl with the “7 single.
We just received a list of tour dates starting in their home town of Miami, FL! If you can make it out to one of these dates I promise you won’t regret it.
