WHORES. Announce New Album Details; Teaser Streaming

Atlanta power trio Whores. have posted the first 15 seconds of their new LP titled Gold today in a video seen above. Whores. will release Gold on October 28th via Entertainment One (eOne), the first for their new label home. The debut LP was recorded at Parhelion Studios with producer Ryan Boesch (Helmet, Fu Manchu, Melvins). The band is also revealing the artwork for Gold done by Patrick Copeland. 

Gold is the follow up to the LP Clean (2013). Also recorded by Boesch, the record sold out within a month, prompting the band to quickly release a second pressing. Clean is now on its fourth pressing.

"We've spent the ATL summer blasting feedback and pick slides in a sweaty, metal box," says frontman / guitarist Christian Lembach. "This is the result. Solid. Fucking. Gold."

The band will join Torche in supporting Red Fang later this fall. Dates will kick off on November 18th at Slim's in San Francisco, spanning coast to coast before wrapping up at the Showbox in Seattle on December 16th. "Red Fang and Torche are both huge inspirations, and we're flattered to be a part of this amazing tour," says Lembach. "Imminent tacos to follow." 

"The band has also announced its plans to participate in the 2016 Aftershock Festival this October, playing alongside the likes of Slayer, Tool, Primus, Baroness and Deafheaven. Lembach adds, "Beyond flattered to be a part of Aftershock Festival this year. Our life partners in Red Fang played last year, and we're super humbled to be a part of this awesome lineup."
