Superhot Records Sign BongCauldron + Superhot Sessions 002

Massively oppressive riffs, booze, feedback and nightmare drug trips. BongCauldron has it all with plenty to spare.

Leeds 3 piece BongCauldron have signed with Superhot Records to release their sludge soaked debut EP. To celebrate this occasion Superhot Records invited Corky (bass, vocals), Biscuit (guitar, vocals) and Jay (drums) to record a live studio session late in April 2013.

Despite making the long drive to Superhot HQ in the small hours of a Monday morning, having just played and partied at 'kin Hell Fest all weekend and one of the lads not having even made it to bed the night before they had no problem blasting out 5 minutes of oppressive sludge.

Watch the live session here:

The album version of the song is also available for free download from Bandcamp here:

Superhot Records will release the EP later in 2013. BongCauldron continue writing music and have the following shows lined up for this year so far:

  • 26th July - Fivers for Trannys at Xscape, Yorkshire, UK
  • 28th September - Dragonfest at the Gasworks, Bradford, UK

Vodun release video for new single, “OYA”, out now on Superhot Records

London heavy-psych-soul trio Vodun have released a mind-bending video for their new download-only single, OYA, released today through Superhot Records.

OYA can be downloaded for £1 through Bandcamp:

The single follows the band’s self-released Eat Up the Sun EP from earlier this year. While the technical, heavy riffing can still be heard, there’s a stronger focus on powerful, soaring vocals than the guitar driven EP.

Featuring two members of one of London’s finest underground bands, Invasion, who disbanded in 2011, Vodun have taken the basic blueprint of that band, added a huge West African voodoo influence and ramped up the intensity across the board. Chan (vocals) and Zel (drums) found a kindred spirit in Oli (guitar) and emerged as a more technically accomplished, musically aggressive and energetic band.

Vodun are touring the UK with fellow Londoners Ghold in June. Catch them live on the following dates for a truly spiritual live show.

  • WED 26th – MANCHESTER – Wahlbar, Fallowfield
  • THUR 27th – LEEDS – Santiagos
  • FRI 28th – NOTTINGHAM – Stuck on a Name Studios
  • SAT 29th – LONDON – The Windmill, Brixton
