Hull Streams "Swamp Goat" Track

Long-running Brooklyn sludge rock collective Hull, in cooperation with Vice/Noisey, hurls forth a stream of "Swamp Goat."

Originally tracked in 2007, "Swamp Goat" laid dormant while the band penned material for the "Sole Lord" full-length. After a grueling tour schedule and follow-up release, 2011's sprawling "Beyond The Lightless" Sky full-length, "Swamp Goat" was lost in the caves and forgotten... until now.

Check it out below, and you can also find a list of upcoming Hull tour dates after the jump. More...

Hull Splits With Guitarist

It is with heavy hearts that Brooklyn-based sludge rock sorcerers Hull announce the departure of longtime guitarist Drew Mack from their collective. Mack will play his final show at Acheron in Brooklyn on June 29th (additional dates listed below).

Comments the band on Mack’s departure: "We are saddened to announce that our Brother, Drew Mack, has chosen to resign from the ranks of HULL. We wish the Wizzard the best on his journey through the tumultuous path of life. Upon the still of the darkest nights, we shall listen for his glorious yodel from high upon the mount. With challenging waters unknown, the ship shall sail farther. As always, your allegiance is not without glorious praise."

Adds Mack: "Together my brothers and I willingly leapt into the curl of the sea, eager to build the hull of a ship worthy of sailing from the golden halls of Valhalla, down into the many fiery stomachs of Hel. Though from Viking seed we all sprang, the cold power of raw lightning had not yet laid in our hands and the echoing brass of thunder had not yet yawned from beneath our feet and thrust itself up through the guts of our bodies... In our oaken ship we stand now skewed upon the quest. Wielding our axes with pride and honor, we sail to breathe light into the darkness and to turn dark back in upon the light; never leaning this way for a lack of that... And yet at a time when all look forward to the wisdom of the path ahead- even with all eyes together, into the quickening gray, not every heart shall pass this veil of mist. Some must yet dive again into the churn of the earth...

"'Through fire and water. From the lowest dungeon to the highest peak, I fought him, the Balrog of Morgoth. Until at last, I threw down my enemy and smote his ruin upon the mountainside. Darkness took me. And I strayed out of thought and time. Stars wheeled overhead and every day was as long as a life-age of the earth. But it was not the end. I felt life in me again... I've sent myself back until my task is done. And I shall come back to you at the turn of the tide....' - Mithrandir."

Hull's upcoming live shows are as follows:

6/16/2012 The Sidebar – Baltimore, MD w/ Triac, Drugs of Faith, Musket Hawk Other Gods
6/29/2012 Acheron – Brooklyn, NY W/ Praetura, Gang Signs, Blackout (Drew Mack’s last show)
7/09/2012 Kung Fu Necktie – Philadelphia, PA w/ A Life Once Lost, Woe

Hull Announces New Tour Dates

Brooklyn sludge rock ministers Hull are pleased to announce another stretch of tour dates this Spring. The short but epic run will commence on March 7th in Long Branch, New Jersey. From there the band will forge a path towards Austin to pillage the way through another SXSW Music Conference.

Commented the band in a collective statement: “The fires of life boil our blood as we anticipate the rising of the moon. Sharpening our steel for the open road, the Earth’s tides overwhelm the coasts. With much doom, the salted sands part as tortured souls spread their heavy upon the cracked crust of our Mother. Brother and Sister traverse the scarred country side, elating the spirits of willing followers as the skies blacken with the sorrow that is expelled. Once again, packed neatly in their battered vessel, HULL burn this candle of life and light the roadside within the depths of night. Accompanied by true warriors upon the first leg are Black Tusk, Royal Thunder and East Of The Wall. Raise your fists in revelry. Stand side by side as we carve deep into the soil of this turbulent wasteland.”

Dates are as follows: More...

Hull To Appear On Cake Boss: The Next Great Baker

Brooklyn sludge rock ensemble Hull will ring in the New Year with an appearance on The Learning Channel's Cake Boss: The Next Great Baker this Monday, January 16th, 2012 at 9:00PM EST.

The Cake Boss: The Next Great Baker is a TLC series hosted by Buddy Valastro, the star of his own reality series, Cake Boss. The show features contestants participating in challenges that test their baking and decorating skills.

Commented guitarist/vocalist N. Palmirotto: "We received this email from a production manager from the TV show, The Next Great Baker, a Cake Boss spin off, asking us if we would like to perform on the show. It was during the time that the Big Four were in town, and Megadeth were originally asked to perform for Mauro's birthday -- Mauro Castano is the Cake Boss' right-hand man and brother-in-law -- as he was always a big metalhead back in the day, but Megadeth couldn't do it for whatever reason. HULL was mentioned at a board meeting, and low and behold, they contacted us. We showed up in Hoboken on a rainy afternoon to a huge production. They had us set up and perform on top of two box trucks while the contestants displayed their best attempts at metal-themed birthday cakes. It was truly a one of a kind experience, and we are very much looking forward to Episode 8, Headbanging Bakers, on January 16th."

For more info on the show, point your browser to the official website here. Hull recently unleashed "Beyond The Lightless Sky" (reviewed here), which continues to earn critical praise from fans and media alike. Released via The End Records, "Beyond The Lightless Sky" was co-produced by Brett Romnes, mixed by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, Melvins), and features guest appearances by vocalist Jarboe, keys/ambiance by Fade Kainer (Batillus/Jarboe/Inswarm) and cello by Joe Merolla with artwork by Tamara Waite-Santibanez.
