HORSENECK: Post-Hardcore/Sludge Collective Kicks Off Mini-Van Hell Ride Tour; New Trailers Posted

"This tour is going to be so loud, you can hear us from the next venue." - HORSENECK
 
California post-hardcore/sludge eccentrics HORSENECK - featuring within its ranks current and past members of Will Haven and Chelsea Wolfe - will kick off a short West Coast tour tomorrow. The Mini-Van Hell Ride trek will commence in Los Angeles, California and run through July 1st in Reno, Nevada.
 
"HORSENECK is embarking on an eight-stop Heavy Trip world tour which is contained almost entirely in California," issues the band of their latest excursion. "Booze, blues, and dudes (and a chick) are gonna riff up California (and Nevada). This tour is going to be so loud, you can hear us from the next venue. Come see us at a stop near you, the mini-van might make it."
 
The band recently issued two more tour trailers which can be viewed at THIS LOCATION where you can also view the hilarious video for "Michael Caine" from their Heavy Trip offering.  
 
Said the band of the tune, "This track is about the feeling you get after a hard party night. Like next level hard party night. When it doesn't stop, and maybe you've made some horrible decisions, but you keep going and going and going. You kind of forget who you are at times. You wake up the next day and say I will never do that again.... but we all know you're lying. We all do it again. The video was just a fun way to show the party animal in all of us."

From the depths of the unknown canyon comes a rock force that has undeniable power and style. Steeped in ancient tradition and ritualistic sacrifices this force continually bludgeons the masses who are compelled to witness them. Their heavy riffs continually snap the necks of anyone sent to challenge them. The wild thunder broom undertones growl from on high, and will never be denied. Powerful rhythms shake the very ground they walk on, and those who are lucky enough to witness this spine crushing quartet will undoubtedly never be the same. Anthony the riff Lord, Lennon the bass wizard, Lance the heaviest of shred, and Jess the power thwack and thud will always leave your neck barely able to hold your head up. HORSENECK, shredders and defenders of the rock!
 
"The music is loud and fun - singer Anthony Paganelli howls the night away over guitars that bounce and twist. The animals get into some shit, puking everywhere and fighting each other, all over the raucousness of the tune. It's gnarly enough to make you want to cruise the streets for chaos, backed by a killer soundtrack." - Clrvynt on "Michael Caine"
 
"Album opener 'Bird Worried' features an organ, bluesy guitar parts and a combination of clean and harsh vocals. It highlights HORSENECK's biggest strength on Heavy Trip - their music isn't what might be expected and it can be silly, but they bring it together well. There are more aggressive cuts on the album too, like 'Lester Vitalis' and 'No Gods,' that rely on thicker, fuzzier riffs but HORSENECKnever fail to deliver something memorable." -- Decibel
"...a catchy and heavy release that is extremely fun to listen to...hard rock with [a] heavy, bruising sludge." -- Svbtterranean
 
"...a fantastic record throughout... The songs are unique, and never feel like the band is stuck in a formula. The compositions are tight and although varied, never disjointed. The production on this album is exactly what's needed. It is heavy, not overly processed, and the mix allows all of the instruments and sounds to intermingle naturally - even with such dense arrangements." -- Riffs Or GTFO
 
"Heavy Trip isn't just a solid album but it feels like a statement of intent that rock 'n' roll is still very much alive.... The album is heavy, catchy and above all else, it's fun and a genuine pleasure to listen to..." - Altwire
 
"Heavy Trip is an album that more than lives up to its name as it's a heavy, psychedelic trip and one that will appeal to fans of The Melvins, Queens Of The Stone Age, Indian Handcrafts, and Red Fang the most... Heavy Trip is perhaps one of the strangest and most addictive records you'll hear this year." -- Outlaws Of The Sun
