STONED JESUS Premier "Thessalia" Music Video

On September 7th, Stoned Jesus will deliver their next solid slab of progressive stoner rock, Pilgrims, via Napalm Records. A video for the album track "Thessalia" can be seen below.

In the video, each band member of the Ukrainian trio fights his own battle, cooped up in a small closet with everyday things around them. It’s an allegory of life, seeing them fighting against the tightness while playing and screaming on their "Thessalia".

Stoned Jesus about the single and upcoming tour: "The shortest and the most direct song off the record, it's also one of the first written for Pilgrims. We're so much looking forward to play the whole album live, but especially this one!“

With their fourth album the Ukrainian trio offers much more than an average desert session: Pilgrims is a rather multi-faceted affair mixing groove with noise rock elements, lots of proggy infusions and maybe even a sick bass line reminiscent of good old Deftones ("Thessalia"). Giants such as Mastodon and Melvins come to mind since Stoned Jesus can't be pigeonholed.

The band comments on the new album: "This record was inspired by our relentless touring and the feelings you get - or more precisely you lose - because of it. It's weird how disconnected one becomes when constantly surrounded by people. Musically it's pretty different from what we've done, it's more song-oriented but simultaneously more challenging than before - sonically and structurally."

Pilgrims will be available in the following formats:

- 1 Limited Edition 4-Page Digipack
- Various LP Gatefolds (different colours)
- Digital Album
