Wo Fat Releasing New Album "The Conjuring"

On June 17th, Wo Fat will release "The Conjuring," the band's fifth full-length and second via the volume perpetrators at Small Stone.

Pre-orders are available here, and you can hear the song "Beggar's Bargain" below. The following press release was also issued about the band:

"Guitarist/vocalist Kent Stump, bassist Tim Wilson, and drummer/backing vocalist Michael Walter are jazz-combo tight and their roll is easy and natural, much like Fu Manchu, but far bigger and in the case of The Conjuring, far darker.

"There's been a creature lurking in the woods since Wo Fat's 2006 debut, The Gathering Dark. Their second album, 2009's Psychedelonaut, pulled back on the threat some to lighten the mood, but whether it's the motor-driven rush of 'Read The Omens' or the you're-already-lost-in-it riff-exploration of seventeen-minute closer 'Dreamwalker,' The Conjuring is indeed a backwoods ritual. Bluesmen have sold their souls for less.

"Veterans of Roadburn, slated for Freak Valley 2014 and self-sufficient with Stump handling the recording at his own Crystal Clear Sound on their home turf, Wo Fat pushes their jams farther than they've ever gone before on these five tracks. Topped off with a mastering job from Nolan Brett at Stump's studio and an otherworldly cover courtesy of Alexander Von Wieding, the beast that Wo Fat's tectonic riffage calls to earth has never seemed more real or more alive than it does on The Conjuring."

The album's track listing is:

1. The Conjuring
2. Read The Omens
3. Pale Rider From The Ice
4. Beggar's Bargain
5. Dreamwalker
