We've known for a while that Floor -- the influential Floridian sludge-pop band that spawned both Torche and Dove -- are working on a new LP. Though details on the album remain scant, it now has both a title and a release date: it'll be called Oblation, and it will come out on April 29 in North America. (Their France-based label Season of Mist will release it on 4/25 elsewhere.)

UPDATE: Floor is playing a FREE Saint Vitus show on 1/29.

No songs from the album have emerged yet, but Floor did release a new recording late last year -- a jam called "The Ladder" -- via a Decibel flexi disc. The song is vintage Floor; it pairs a menacing chromatic sludge riff with airy, layered singing. Stream it below...

"Vintage" Floor? Nah dawg, this is "vintage" Torche at best. You may want to familiarize yourself with the actually early recordings of Floor, you know, the ones they did in the first 10 years of their existence, where "airy, layered singing" was replaced by feedback squalls and yelling.

So many amazing bands from Florida in the 80's, 90's and beyond were underrated. Only band to escape the Florida curse was Marilyn Manson but they were probably the lamest band in South Florida in the 90s except they had lunchboxes, stuffed animals and make-up. Guess that's what the rest of the country wants.
