ESCOBAR BRINGS “THE BIGGEST SOUND” WITH NEW ALBUM RELEASE
France’s highly-acclaimed two-headed pirate beast rises from cold waters to bloody your ears with its third album of power-grunge rock n roll.
Escobar was formed in 2014 in Limoges, France, by Remi Lucas (Weird Omen, The Anomalys) and Charly Kayo (The Bushmen, Daria). The band’s 2015 debut, エスコバル and the 2016 second album, Bird Of Prey, saw the band touring all over Europe including big festival stages.
The Biggest Sound boasts, but backs it up with a cracking 12 track sludgefeast of sounds not heard since 1991 in Butch Vig’s Madison, Wisconsin studio who engineered some the 90’s biggest and best with Laughing Hyena’s, Sonic Youth and Nirvana. Escobar hearks us back to that era of massive pedal stomping madness with fat walls of distortion and feedback with BIG buildups reminiscent of those classic slabs from Sub Pop and Amphetamine Reptile Records. It really does feel like 1991 all over again on this record probably because Escobar aren’t hitting 50 years old like Dave Grohl is.
Escobar’s 2017 full-length album, is available exclusively for preorder NOW on 12″ ORANGE VINYL through Dirty Water Records USA. Includes downloads.
Orders placed after the preorder period cannot be guaranteed on orange vinyl; all other orders will be on 12″ black vinyl. Preorders will ship the week of November 20, 2017.
