We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Biblical’s new album The City That Always Sleeps (listen below), which is scheduled to be officially released through Tee Pee Records (US/UK/EU) and New Damage Records (Canada) on September 15th. You can purchase the album here.
Formed in 2010, Biblical is a hard rock band with psych undertones that creates catchy, heavy songs that unfold rather surprisingly. In addition to Sewell, the quartet features in its ranks guitar / synth player Andrew Scott (both Scott and Sewell played with Death From Above drummer Sebastien Grainger in his Sebastien Grainger & The Mountains project), lead guitarist Matt Mclaren and drummer Jay Anderson (also of Comet Control). Motivation for the band’s name is rooted in the Ghostbusters quote from Peter Venkman: “This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions!”
Inspired by greats such as CAN, MC5 and Blue Öyster Cult, the sound of Biblical has been lauded as “a Red Sea-parting surge of narcotic guitar noise” by Pitchfork and “deliciously smothering” by Canadian national magazine Exclaim!. Before and since the 2014 release of its full-length debut, Monsoon Season, Biblical has toured and / or rocked stages alongside DFA1979, Eagles of Death Metal, Fucked Up, Kyuss Lives! and Red Fang among many more.
