LISTEN TO KING WOMAN’S EVOCATIVE NEW TRACK, “HIEROPHANT”

Bay Area’s King Woman will release their debut full-length album Created in the Image of Suffering on February 24th.  In anticipation, they’ve unveiled another track that from the album; listen to the transcendental and melancholic song “Hierophant” today via CLRVYNT.

Created in the Image of Suffering was recorded with engineer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Wreck & Reference, Oathbreaker) at the Atomic Garden in Palo Alto, CA.  Each of the 7 songs evoke rich, gloomy imagery with crumbling washes of blurred, billowing distortion densely layered atop hazy, psychedelic atmospheres that call to mind a surrealistic Black Sabbath fronted by Mazzy Star. Complete with deeply personal, introspective lyrics that serve as a catharsis for years of religious and mental torment, King Woman truly suffer to create their art.

King Woman will tour throughout 2017 in support of Created in the Image of Suffering – dates listed below in North America and Europe, with many more to surface.  Also be sure to check out King Woman’s extremely emotional and powerful music video for “Deny” here.
