Karma To Burn Issues Studio Update

Karma to Burn has issued the following statement about entering the studio to record new material:

"In an unassuming neighborhood somewhere just outside of downtown LA an ominous rumble has begun. For the next 9 days that rumble is going to turn into one of the great rock albums of the 21st century… Karma To Burn are recording again.

"For the last 3 hours the cascading riffs of 48 have poured from a pair of the nicest speakers these ears ever set, well, ears upon. We’ve been listening to the same 5 minutes and 42 seconds of music the whole time and it’s never got tiresome… if anything it improves with every listen.

"I’m sure that’s at least something to do with the engineering. Lou seems to be some kind of button-pushing, nob-turning, slider-sliding genius. Everything sounds unbelievable.

"More likely though it’s the fact that like most every Karma To Burn tune you’ve heard before, there’s more riffs and great ideas in this one song that most bands will come up with in a career. Sure, admin is biased, but even so… anyone who ever slipped on a K2B record and tapped their foot is in for a treat."

Karma To Burn Announces U.S. Tour

Karma to Burn has issued the following statement about an upcoming U.S. tour:

"Over protests from Christian Right leaders, who oppose their music for containing magic (and, by extension, Satanic religious beliefs), Karma To Burn are pleased to announce US tour dates in support of their forthcoming new album, 'Appalachian Incantation', set for North American release on May 11th. 'Appalachian Incantation' will be Karma To Burn's first studio album in eight years and the legendary stoner rockers' first album for Napalm Records, following the recent release of their 'Live 2009 - Reunion Tour' DVD.

"We have hopes that the allure of bright lights and the promise of instant wealth will have Karma To Burn shows filled to the rafters with youngsters clamoring for instruction in summoning and conjuring, willing their bodies and souls to Lucifer in unholy blood covenants, or at least watching more softcore pornography on cable... Joining us onstage will be the unassuming wizards of Year Long Disaster and Satan himself, who will appear as a beast with seven heads and ten horns."

The currently confirmed dates are as follows:

05/14 - Brooklyn, NY @ Knitting Factory
05/15 - Philadelphia, PA
05/16 - Baltimore, MD @ Ottobar
05/17 - Springfield, VA @ Jaxx
05/19 - Pittsburgh, PA @ 31st Pub

Karma To Burn Posts Music Video Online

Karma To Burn has posted a video online for the song "20," which can be viewed below. The band also issued the following statement about the video:

"Naturally, when we first sat down to concoct a video for 20 we thought to hire some genius who would yet again juxtapose religious iconography and bodily waste. However, we found no such horrifying, blasphemous excuses for video directors in Hollywood. We were told in fact time and again 'American people will no longer stand for vulgar, nonsensical displays that masquerade as art.' Undaunted we used our entire video budget to hop a jet to the most depraved city on the planet, Berlin.

"There we met Nat Fowler, a man who once lived in Baltimore for 27 years straight. He demanded we allow him to create a dream video directed from an idea that came to him in a dream. We agreed as he also agreed to let us pay him in dream dollars and primitivist painted paper masks. We mutually bellowed inanities and fired pistols into random crowds to conceptually evoke the hideous irrationality of the collective unconscious.

"Using a few simple and surreal ingredients this may or may not be that video." More...
