TOMBS released their critically acclaimed album Savage Gold this June via Relapse Records which Paul mentions in his review “Savage Gold is special, it’s a record that will not only be on everyone’s end-of-year lists, it will be regarded as an exemplar of the form for years down the line, it really is that strong. Believe me, people are going to be talking about this one.”
And now TOMBS have finally finished work on the album’s first video for the song Seance. Get a first look at the video below:
Front man Mike Hill commented on the video: “Watching the video is like observing this realm dissolve as you pass into a higher level of consciousness.”
TOMBS have released an official IPA beer with Tired Hands Brewing Company in Ardmore, PA. The Savage Gold Beer is an imminently refreshing and crushable IPA. Brewed with red wheat and oats. Hopped intensely and aggressively with Nelson Sauvin and Hallertau Blanc. Enormous notes of white grape, green pepper, mango, and marijuana. 5.2% abv.
Additionally, frontman Mike Hill has launched a specialty coffee company, Savage Gold Coffee, inspired by his love for high quality, organic coffee. The first roast, Savage Gold Prime,is an Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee bean grown between 6,000 and 6,500 feet above sea level. It is an aromatic and dynamic coffee roasted to perfection with a large flavor profile. It is sourced from a co-op of Ethiopian farmers and is 100% Fair Trade, certified organic and wet (mechanically) processed. More info on the coffee is available via the official Savage Gold website HERE. Decibel Magazine’s “Deciblog” spoke with Mike Hill earlier this week about the new coffee company, read the interview HERE.
