Svart Records is happy to announce that we have signed a contract with San Francisco’s ACID KING and will be handling their forthcoming new album worldwide. The new album, which is the legendary stoner rock band’s first in 10 years, was recorded at Sharkbite Studios by Billy Anderson with Toshi Kasai and mixed by Billy Anderson. Featuring cover art by esteemed tattoo artist Tim Lehi, the nine-track album will be available on CD, gatefold double-LP, and digital formats in February 2015.
