COUGH – Premiere New Song


Richmond doom quartet, COUGH, has shared a second new song from their forthcoming offering, Still The Pray, their first new full-length in five years. The crushing eleven-minute-long “Dead Among The Roses” has just premiered via Stereogum, who issues: “Still They Pray…makes a strong case for them as the best straight-ahead stoner sludge band in the game today. True, they’re basically executing Electric Wizard’s playbook: long, digressive songs built on huge amps; resinated and resonant power chords sketching out bluesy riffs; textural solos and slow fades. (Electric Wizard main man Jus Osborn produced the album, fittingly.) But COUGH summon a sense of pained melancholy that recalls other meanings of ‘execution.’ David Cisco’s tortured vocals give COUGH an emotive edge that many bands in this vein lack; his miserable howling on ‘Dead Among The Roses’ reminds that psychedelic experiences often come with a dark side.”

Still They Pray is set for release via Relapse Records on CD, 2xLP, and digitally this coming June 3rd.
