In the mood for some loud as shit stoner doom? Crack open the beers and pour the shots (who cares that its Tuesday morning?) because Twingiant has teamed up with us to release a new music video for "Tiger Lily." The Dillon Vaughn-created clip is available below.
"Tiger Lily" can be found on Twingiant's 2nd self-released album, "Devil Down," which is available for streaming at Bandcamp here. "Devil Down" was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Ryan Butler at Arcane Digital Recording in the summer of 2014.

Twingiant was formed in 2010 to fulfill the band members’ desire to play loud-as-shit, heavy music. Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, they prefer their guitars low and slow, eschewing fancy musicianship for heavy grooves and psychedelic effects pedals. This is southern stoner doom at its finest, and you can stream their entire and brand new 2nd full-length album "Devil Down" below.
"Devil Down" will be released today on vinyl via Medusa Crush Records. You can order the LP or download the digital album here.

The Phoenix-based sludge masters from Twingiant are set to release their new album "Devil Down" this Winter.
"Devil Down" is the follow up to "Mass Driver" (available for streaming here) and was engineered and mastered by Ryan Butler (Landmine Marathon) at Arcane Digital Recording. The band had the following to say about the new album:
"We’ll be releasing our 2nd, full-length album entitled, Devil Down, by the end of the year. We’re really happy with how it’s coming along and it’s been nothing short of awesome working with Ryan Butler (Landmine Marathon) of Arcane Digital Recording. Since Tony (guitars) joined the band last summer, our sound evolved as you would expect.
"We have more of a 70s/Southern Rock feel now and it’s really evident on Devil Down more so than when we were flirting with that sound on the Sin Nombre EP. The vocals are probably the most noticeable change from the prior two releases. You can actually understand 75% of what Jarrod is saying and there are more of them now.
"Devil Down still has all the elements that you would expect from Twingiant, but you can definitely tell that we’ve matured and found our stride. We can’t wait to release it."
Further details about the album, including a complete track listing, will be announced shortly.
