Here Lies Man -- the band led by Antibalas member Marcos Garcia and featuring other current and former Antibalas members -- aimed to answer the question “What if Black Sabbath played Afrobeat?” on their self-titled debut album last year, which was released to some notable acclaim, and this week (6/15) they'll follow it with their sophomore album You Will Know Nothing. The new album aims to answer the same question, though this one feels ever so slightly less metal and ever so slightly more fuzzed out psychedelia -- a little more Blue Cheer than Black Sabbath. Whatever comparison you make, one thing is clear: Here Lies Man are still really, really good at making riffy, rhythmic psychedelic rock that sounds like the '60s/'70s but still feels fresh today. Fans of anything from Nuggets to Ty Segall and King Gizzard should take note. A full stream of the album premieres below.

If you like what you hear, you can pre-order the album on LP/CD or digital from RidingEasy Records.

Here Lies Man are also touring and playing some festivals, including New York's Huichica East and California's Desert Daze. The day before Huichica East, they play a Brooklyn show at Saint Vitus (8/23) with Mick's Jaguar (ticket info TBA). All dates are listed below.
