Ethereal sludge unit HE WHOSE OX IS GORED will unleash their brand new “Paralyzer” seven-inch this weekend via Chain Letter Collective and the band’s own label Void Assault Records
Captured by renowned producer Jack Endino (Soundgarden, Nirvana, L7, High On Fire, Zeke etc.) at Avast! Recording Studio (Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Earth, Supersuckers etc.), “Paralyzer” was recorded as part of a Converse Rubber Tracks session and includes two previously released tracks — “Buried Twice” and “Void Assault” from the band’s critically-lauded Rumors EP — remixed by their cohorts in Seattle’s Newaxeyes.
“The ‘Paralyzer’ seven-inch started as a great opportunity presented to us by Converse Rubber Tracks and Jack Endino,” HE WHOSE OX IS GORED comments. “We also wanted to find a way to work with our friends in Newaxeyes and a seven-inch came to mind. When Ben and Heather Heywood of Los Angeles’ Chain Letter Collective came on board, it created an opportunity for us to bring it all together.”
“Paralyzer” will see an official release on June 16th but will be available this Sunday, May 14th at the band’s special show with Conan, North, and Serial Hawk at Highline on their home turf of Seattle as part of the venue’s seven-year anniversary series. The seven-inch will also be available throughout HE WHOSE OX IS GORED’s US tour with Samothrace from May 17th through June 10th. The trek includes performances with Void Omina, Noothgrush, and Graves At Sea on select dates. See all confirmed shows below.
In celebration of its release, today the band is pleased to unveil the visual accompaniment to “Paralyzer” (their first-ever video) at THIS LOCATION.
