In celebration of the forthcoming release of Colossus, the hard-truckin’ new long player from Ohio fuzz rockers, LO-PAN, MetalSucks is now streaming its ten-tracks in full!
Produced and engineered by Andrew Schneider (Unsane, Rosetta, East Of The Wall et al) at his own Translator Audio Studio in Brooklyn, Colossus gets its name from a gargantuan statue of the Greek titan-god of the sun, Helios, constructed in 280 BC to mark a failed siege and the indomitable nature of the Greek city of Rhodes itself. A fitting title for an album that’s equally enormous.
LO-PAN’s Colossus is currently streaming in all it’s riff-roaring glory at MetalSucks.
The band has now wrapped up their US jaunt alongside fellow volume antagonists, Black Cobra, but will playing a headline gig at the Downtown Lounge in Tulsa, OK on the 4th October and their record release show at Ace Of Cups, Columbus, OH on the 17th October. LO-PAN will also bring their fuzzed out stoner grooves to The Netherlands next year as part of the twentieth edition of Roadburn Festival on Sunday 12th April.
“Lo-Pan is honored to be invited to perform at the prestigious Roadburn Festival 2015,” says drummer Jesse Bartz, “We are looking forward to making life long memories and friends.”
Colossus will be released on October 7th, pre-order your copy now from via Small Stone Recordings.
