Dusting themselves off from their recent West Coast USA tour, Texas stoner doom trio Funeral Horse has announced that they will be entering the studio to record the follow-up to their acclaimed second album, Sinister Rites of the Master (Artificial Head Records).
Additionally, the band wishes to officially announce Chris Bassett as their new drummer. Chris will be joining the band in the studio to lay down the tracks for the third Funeral Horse release.
Recording will begin in January with nine songs currently slated for release. The band has once again selected Digital Warehaus in Houston, Texas as the studio for recording. Renowned artist Savage Pencil has been tapped for the cover art to the new album.
Explains singer/guitar player Paul Bearer:
We are extremely lucky to have found Chris and have him on board with us. Not only has he picked up the new material quickly, he has helped to tighten the focus of the band and bring more of the doom element into our sound.
Additional info on the upcoming album will be released in the coming weeks as Funeral Horse prepares to finish recording and then hit the road again around North America and Europe in the fall of 2015.
