Canadian dark new age trio Doomsquad will release their debut album 'Kalaboogie' onFebruary 25 via Hand Drawn Dracula (CAN/USA) & No Pain In Pop (UK/EU).
Last month the group shared the first taste of their forthcoming album with the down-tempo industrial track "Disremember/Dismemberment." Today they share the high-energy psych-jam "Waka Waka." The accompanying music video features a toll-free phone number you can call to receive a free download of an exclusive track entitled "WakaBinaural." Watch the video over at BlackBook Magazine.
The band has added more shows to their upcoming winter/spring tour. Full tour dates listed below, more dates TBA.
Dark new agers Doomsquad re-code the electronic music narrative with a more worldly and cosmological presence than the genre would normally dictate. Their songs are rich in variance and full of vividness, spanning across their entire debut LP 'Kalaboogie' (out February 25). Drawing in guitar, flute, percussion and synth, the Montreal and Toronto-based siblings Allie, Jaclyn and Trevor Blumas act as aural anthropologists, teaming relics of cross cultural traditions like chanting and repetition over seismic ripples of deep bass. Doomsquad's mixing of influences leaves you feeling awakened.
