Britain’s dustiest stoner rock outfit STEAK just unveiled the title and artwork for their debut record, to be released this September via Napalm Records. Get ready for a thundering breakthrough into STEAK‘s Slab City!
After two critically acclaimed EPs Disastronaught (2012) and Corned Beef Colossus (2013), the fuzzy foursome flew out to South California this March, and spent two weeks at Palm Springs’ renowned studio Thunder Underground to record their debut album, coherently called Slab City.
Slab City was produced by Harper Hug (Vista Chino, Brant Bjork, Nick Oliveri) and co-produced by Unida’s guitarist Arthur Seay, and will feature guest vocals from desert rock legend John Garcia. As for each one of their releases, the artwork was made by DC Comics artist Eduardo Ferigato and falls within the course of STEAK‘s epic saga.
