GRAILS on Stereogum

Stereogum has posted Grails' new song, "Wake Up Drill II", off the band's upcoming Black Tar Prophecies Volume 5.

From Portland, Oregon, Grails feature drummer Emil Amos, also of Om, the band founded by the rhythm section of the legendary Sleep.

Black Tar Prophecies Volume 5 sees an October 30 release on Kemado Records as one side of a split LP, the other side belonging to Finland's Pharaoh Overlord, featuring three members of the prolific Finnish band Circle.

Stereogum's Michael Nelson describes Grails' music as "explorations of sounds spanning psychedelia, ambient, doom, Eastern music, prog, and beyond... a complex kingdom of sound." The song "Wake Up Drill II" is a sequel to "Belgian Wake Up Drill" from Grails' 2006 album Black Tar Prophecies Vols 1, 2, & 3.

Grails head to Australia this week.
