Ecstatic Vision unveil “The Electric Step” – Share SXSW schedule – ‘Raw Rock Fury’ on Relapse out April 7

Philadelphia’s heavy quartet ECSTATIC VISION hit with the second single from their forthcoming Raw Rock Fury that’s due out April 7 on Relapse. “The Electric Step” pushes new boundaries. LISTEN “The Electric Step” on Soundcloud

Raw Rock Fury exhibits the band locking in on primordial, troglodyte Detroit rock grooves, krautian motorik sounds that recall the obscure one-time collaboration between NEU and the MC5, grimy harmonica flourishes that evoke Beefheart at his most savage, and the Hawkwindian, primal world heavy psych their debut expertly showcased. All of this is captured on four songs and 35+ minutes of the dirtiest sounding recordings since Kick Out The Jams.

Back in 2014 ECSTATIC VISION introduced their brand of heavy primal psych influenced by groups like Hawkwind, Aphrodites Child, Olatunji, Can and early Amon Duul ll in late 2013. Formed in Philadelphia to primarily “play what they wanted to hear,” the band quickly rose to those in the know as a force to be reckoned with. ECSTATIC VISION signed to Relapse Records on the power of a demo and their psychedelic freak out, primal live concerts. Their debut LP, Sonic Praise saw a release by Relapse in June 2015 and during this time the band toured the US and EU with prestigious acts such as Enslaved, YOB and Uncle Acid & The Dead Beats in addition to numerous shows with the likes of Earthless, Pentagram, Red Fang, Acid King and many others.
