Doom godfathers THE OBSESSED have introduced their new lineup. Becoming a member of frontman Scott “Wino” Weinrich and drummer Brian Costantino are bassist Chris Angleberger (TRANQUILIZER) and guitarist Jason Taylor (SIERRA, WITCHES OF GOD).
THE OBSESSED will play “a string of reveals” en path to the band’s look at this 12 months’s Ripplefest Texas competition, set to happen July 21-24, 2022 in Austin.
Says THE OBSESSED: “We sit up for seeing you out on the highway! Tour dates coming quickly.”
THE OBSESSED launched its first studio album in over 20 years, “Sacred”, in April 2017 through Relapse Information.
Weinrich, who has additionally performed with SAINT VITUS, SPIRIT CARAVAN, THE HIDDEN HAND and SHRINEBUILDER, introduced THE OBSESSED‘s return in March 2016 on social media, explaining in an announcement: “All around the world I’ve listened to pals inform me, ‘We wish you to deliver again THE OBSESSED,’ so I’ve determined to resurrect THE OBSESSED.” He added that he was “ready for the precise mixture of capacity, perspective and character to perform this aim.”
Cast in 1976 in Maryland, THE OBSESSED weathered varied lineup shifts and an on-again-off-again standing over the course of a winding, forty-year historical past. The band launched three now-legendary full-lengths — 1990’s “The Obsessed”, 1991’s “Lunar Womb” and 1994’s “The Church Inside” — in addition to a gaggle of seven-inch singles and compilation appearances.
“The Church Inside” was Wino‘s most critically hailed album. Regardless of being co-released by Hellhound Information and the foremost label Columbia Information, the music-buying plenty weren’t able to embrace doom in 1994 and as an alternative fixated on shopping for information by rehashed pop-punk bands. A number of components led to “The Church Inside” turning into THE OBSESSED‘s final full-length album previous to the arrival of “Sacred”. Regardless of not turning into a top-seller, the album stays massively influential.
Whats up pals, I’m proud to announce the brand new The Obsessed lineup! On bass Chris Angleberger (Tranquilizer),on 2nd…
