stream Blackwater Holylight’s new album ‘Veils of Winter’

Blackwater Holylight Veils

Portland’s Blackwater Holylight‘s new album Veils of Winter comes out this Friday (10/11) via RidingEasy Records (pre-order), and we’re premiering a stream of the whole album in this post. Sometimes “psych” or “stoner” bands become very easy to pigeonhole, but on Veils of Winter, Blackwater Holylight are not one of those bands. They pull sounds from all across the board — from gothy dream pop to hypnotic psych jams to Sabbath riffage; from dark, eerie songs to upbeat catchy songs — and they bring it all together in a way that never feels unfocused. And while Veils of Winter would probably make you assume Blackwater Holylight have a pretty awesome record collection, it’s not just a game of “spot the influence” — good songwriting is always in the forefront. Hear Veils of Winter for yourself below.

Blackwater Holylight are playing Lake Perris, California’s Desert Daze festival this weekend, and then a hometown release show later this month with RIP and Pushy, and then heading out on a tour with Monolord, including a Brooklyn show on November 17 at Saint Vitus (tickets).

The tour with Monolord also brings both bands to Austin’s Levitation festival, and Blackwater Holylight have a few Northwest dates with Yob after that tour ends. All dates are listed below.
