Burning World have got word that the pressing of the HAIKAI NO KU album ‘Sick On My Journey‘ will be with us in 3 week and Pre-Orders for this beast of an album are now available from the Burning World Webstore, you can also stream and download the digital version from the Burning Word Bandcamp page and if you make a physical Pre-Order, Burning World will send you a link/code to download the album immediately.
‘Sick On My Journey‘ is the first ‘real’ album by HAIKAI NO KU, the brainchild of Mike Vest from the mighty Bong, Sam Booth and Jerome Smith.
The band has been described as:
“Death Toll Blues, ear damaging psych heavily influenced by Japanese bands like Mainliner, Les Rallizes Denudes etc. Crashing drums and Bass lay down the framework for fiery guitar attacks to lash across peoples faces. Expect dirge, noise and astral planes.”
“New Newcastle supergroup featuring Mike Vest (Drunk In Hell, Bong, Master Slave,Ramesses, Basillica, Obey, etc), Jerome Smith (Female Borstal) and Sam Booth (Fooot Hair, Obey). Phew! Haikai No Ku play some of the most morose, damaged blues psych we’ve heard in years: death-toll bass and crashing drums lead the way for a solitary guitar line obliterated by total psychedelic guitar scree. Songs start off as loose jams that slowly build up to utter brain-melting acid psychedelia. Early Ramleh gone deathrock?”
Needless to say Burning World are very excited about this release and can’t wait till the vinyl has come in. The release is limited to 300 copies, 100 on gold vinyl, 200 on black. All orders will include a CD of the album and can be ordered from the Burning World Webstore now.
