The Cosmic Dead return with their first full length album since 2014’s Easterfaust. For the uninitiated The Cosmic Dead are a quartet from Glasgow, Scotland, making some of the best raging freak out psych right now. ‘Rainbowhead’ is a brand new LP, featuring four tracks of spaced out, heavy psych formed from insane chugging bass, trippy synth blasts, krautrock infused metallic guitar riffin’ and furious cascading drum cycles. The band’s constant positive vibes have led to them touring all over the UK and Europe, playing the prestigious Liverpool Psych Fest and the band are due to play Psycho Festival in Las Vegas in August alongside Sleep, Candlemass, Yob, Mudhoney, Death and more. ‘Rainbowhead’ follows records on Cardinal Fuzz, Evil Hoodoo, Who Do You Trust?, Sound of Cobra and some of the best underground labels around.
The band said:
“A few days before appearing at Cry Parrot's 'Music Is The Music Language' Festival in Glasgow, The Cosmic Dead journeyed north to a remote cottage near Kyle of Lochalsh in the Highlands of Scotland. Isolated from technology and with the help of focaccia aficionado & sound engineer Luigi Pasquini, we recorded sounds wrought from the textures and folds of the surrounding landscape clasping its craggy links to the Inner Sea. A place we call Rainbowhead.”
