The Budos Band announce new album, Burnt Offering, stream “The Sticks”


    On October 21st, 10-piece instrumental outfit The Budos Band will return with Burnt Offering, their first new album in over four years. Due out on Daptone, the follow-up to 2010’s The Budos Band III was recorded at their longtime Staten Island studio with Tom Brenneck (Charles Bradley, Cee-Lo Green).

    According to a press release, the 10-track effort is “dripping with the psychedelic sounds of early heavy metal fused with the tight-knit propulsion of Fela Kuti” and “sparked by their love of Black Sabbath and Pentagram.” That’s the totally Sabbath-esque album artwork above.

    Our first look at Burnt Offering comes in the form of “The Sticks”, an ominous track that packs snarling grooves and a rather head-banging-worthy breakdown. Listen in below.


    Burnt Offering Tracklist:
    01. Into the Fog
    02. The Sticks
    03. Aphasia
    04. Shattered Winds
    05. Black Hills
    06. Burnt Offering
    07. Trail Of Tears
    08. Magus Mountain
    09. Tomahawk
