CONNOISSEUR: West Coast Stoner Violence Miscreants Unleash “Pot Hole” Video Clip; Hide Your Nugs As The Band Smokes Out A Town Near You

On the eve of their massive …And Stoner Justice For All Summer Tour, today CONNOISSEUR, in cooperation with the dealers at No Clean Singing, offer up the hilarious new video for “Pot Hole.” The stoney psalm comes by way of the band’s Stoner Justice full-length, set to drop next month via Tankcrimes Records.

Issues No Clean Singing, “If you’re not familiar with CONNOISSEUR and you’re expecting some paint-by-numbers stoner metal, you’ll have to re-orient your thinking, with or without some weedy assistance. ‘Pot Hole’ is a seething, searing, thick-riffed outburst of rage, with pissed-off vocal vitriol that will leave your ear drums in tatters. Yeah, CONNOISSEUR do not adjust to an empty pot hole by chanting tranquilizing mantras. The video, by the way, is funny as shit.”

Don’t believe the hype? Point your glassy peepers on over to THIS LOCATION and see for yourself.

And if you missed it, sample THC-infused cranium-crusher, “New Amsterdam,” still streaming via Cvlt Nation at THIS LOCATION as well as their lyric video for “Orc Summer,” now playing at Revolver at THIS LOCATON.

CONNOISSEUR will bring their weedian hymns to stages throughout the US on a mammoth run of live incursions slated to kick off tomorrow in Oakland. The trek will smoke out over four dozen metropolises through July 11th. Hide your nugs!

Likening themselves to Earth Crisis if they “smoked weed and listened to Spazz,” the Smokeland, California-based trio, CONNOISSEUR, deafens the weak with an upbeat/d-beat barrage of West Bay powerviolence packed with resin-coated sludgedowns and chronically brutal, comically cheeba-charged vocal onslaughts that consume the listener in a violently stoned, inescapable haze. Initially released in EP form last year and captured by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios, Oakland (Annihilation Time, Iron Lung, Vhöl, Brainoil), Stoner Justice redux is remastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering (Abscess, Toxic Holocaust, Voetsek etc.) and has been expanded to fourteen blunted ragers, including a live set professionally recorded at the Tankcrimes Takeover on February 13th, 2015 (mixed and mastered by the same team) and includes a mind-bending cover art collaboration by Skinner (Mastodon) and Hal Rotter (Atriarch, Cough, Eyehategod, Skeletonwitch etc.). Those who puff to the gutter-crusted resonance of Plutocracy, Spazz, Crossed Out, Dystopia, and Earth Crisis, listen up.

Stoner Justice will see release on CD, LP (on rad splatter vinyl) and digitally via Tankcrimes on June 9th, 2015. For preorder bundles scroll on over to THIS LOCATION.

Within these 31 minutes of violent music, you get fourteen tracks that hit you hard in the chest. So breathe in deep bitch, cough heavily and let CONNOISSEUR take over your body. It’s the gateway drug to more great metal. A step up from last year’s EP, delivering the same punches as last year but adding much more quality substance to give us a quality high that only true musicians can achieve. Blaze this over and over, let me know how you feel in the morning.” – HeadbangorGTFO
