High on Fire Begins Work on New Album

High On Fire
eOne Music

High on Fire have begun work on the follow-up to 2012’s ‘De Vermis Mysteriis.’ Frontman Matt Pike, bassist Jeff Matz and drummer Des Kensel have written music in both New Orleans and Oakland that’s described as ‘epic’ and ‘sonically huge.’ The as-yet-untitled album is expected to see a winter 2015 release date via eOne Music.

“Des, Jeff and I are really getting creative and writing a hell of a new record,” says Pike. “It’s a crazy project and I can’t really explain what it’s all about just yet, but we’ve been writing a lot of crazy intense material that will up the ante, and bring things to another level.”

Kensel adds, “Everyone is asking what the new High on Fire music sounds like. Chew on some mescaline and listen to side B of Sabbath’s ‘Master of Reality’ backwards at 78 RPM and it might give you an idea.”

In addition to working on the new album, High on Fire are playing some U.S. dates, including three nights in Chicago. They travel to Australia in July and then head to Europe for a tour that begins July 23 in Germany. For a complete list of dates, go here.
