High on Fire Prepare New Album
Oakland doom thrashers High on Fire have just signed to Koch Records, and have begun writing their new, as-yet-untitled CD. This release is scheduled for summer 2009.
The trio—Matt Pike (guitar, vocals), Des Kensel (drums) and Jeff Matz (bass)—has released four critically acclaimed albums during its career, starting with its 2000 debut, The Art of Self Defense. Their latest album, Death Is This Communion, was released on Relapse Records in 2007 and was produced by producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Mudhoney).
Scott Givens, VP of Metal at Koch, comments on the partnership, “High on Fire is one of the most important bands in the metal genre and we are extremely excited to be working with them.”
High on Fire performed on Gigantour 2008, alongside Megadeth and In Flames, and recently wrapped up a tour with Opeth.
