High On Fire Begins Work On New Album

California's High On Fire is now beginning work on anew, as-yet-untitled studio album. A winter 2015 tentative release date via eOne is expected for the new LP, which is the follow-up to 2012's "De Vermis Mysteriis."

"Des, Jeff and I are really getting creative and writing a hell of a new record," states guitarist/vocalist Matt Pike. "It's a crazy project and I can't really explain what it's all about just yet, but we've been writing a lot of crazy intense material that will up the ante, and bring things to another level."

"Everyone is asking what the new High on Fire music sounds like," adds drummer Des Kensel. "Chew on some mescaline and listen to side B of Sabbath's "Master of Reality" backwards at 78 RPM and it might give you an idea."

In addition to constructing the new album, High On Fire has announced a handful of upcoming U.S. live dates as well as an Australian headlining tour and a European headlining trek. Catch the band live:
