Oh Sees prep new LP ‘Smote Reverser,’ share “Overthrown,” expand tour

smote

Oh Sees will be back with new album Smote Reverser on August 17 which pulls them into metal territory, from the awesome cover art (above) to ripping first single “Overthrown.” Listen to that below and here’s the always-entertaining Castle Face press release:

Crack the coffers, Oh Sees have spawned another frothy LP of head-destroying psych epics to grok and rock out to. You’ll notice the fresh dollop of organ and keyboard prowess courtesy of “Memory of a Cut Off Head” alum and noted key-stabber Tom Dolas. The Quattrone/Rincon drum-corps polyrhythmic pulse continues to astound and pound in equal measure, buttressed by the nimble fingered bottom end of Sir Tim Hellman the Brave and of course the shred-heaven fret frying of John Dwyer, while Lady Brigid Dawson again graces the wax with her harmonic gifts. Aside from the familiar psych-scorch familiar to soggy pit denizens the world over, there’s a fresh heavy-prog vibe that fits like a worn-in jean jacket comfortably among hairpin metal turns and the familiar but no less horns-worthy guitar fireworks Dwyer’s made his calling card. Perhaps the most notable thing about Smote Reverser is the artistic restlessness underpinning its flights of fancy. Dwyer refuses to repeat himself and for someone with such a hectic release schedule, that stretching of aesthetic borders and omnivorous appetite seems all the more superhuman.

You can check out album tracklist below. Oh Sees will be on tour this fall, including three nights at Brooklyn’s Warsaw. They’ve added a lot more more shows, including South America in November. Updated tour dates are listed below.
