Alpha is the aptly titled inaugural release from Sheffield’s bizarrely named AWOOGA. Set for physical release on 9 December via Rockosmos (Amplifier, Thumpermonkey), Alpha is the perfect introduction to their dark yet humorous world.
Initially premiered on Sludgelord, check their debut video ‘Where The Others Go’here:
Comprising James Borrowdale (guitar) and brothers Tam & Taz Ali (bass/vocals and drums respectively), the trio’s compelling take on rock fuses together a multitude of shoegaze, psych, prog, and stonerdoom influences, occupying a place somewhere between Deftones, Tool andSwervedriver.
There’s something eternally magical about rock three pieces – and AWOOGA absolutely smash it with ease as Alpha lays out the stall for what’s to come.
Alpha will be available as a beautiful flame red heavyweight ultra collectable artefact, lovingly cut by lathe supremo Gregg Moore and complete with the instantly striking artwork from AWOOGA’s Chris Pick.
AWOOGA will be announcing live dates in December to coincide with the release which will be announced in due course.
