California post-hardcore/sludge misfits HORSENECK — featuring within its ranks current and past members of Will Haven and Chelsea Wolfe — are pleased to unveil the vinyl edition of their critically-lauded Heavy Trip full-length, self-released via the band’s own Worried Bird Records early last year. Heavy Trip was captured by Lance Jackman (Will Haven) at The Dock, mixed by Scott Evans (Kowloon Walled City) at Antisleep Studios, and mastered by Carl Saff (Big Business, Helms Alee, Russian Circles) at Saff Mastering.
Limited to 250 copies, the vinyl edition includes alternate artwork and is currently available via the HORSENECK Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION.
Issues the band “Heavy Trip deserved to be released on vinyl and live on in fans’ record collections. We are so pumped to give this album a whole new way for people to listen to it. Turn it up loud and let the tone of the vinyl warm your eardrums.”

HORSENECK returns to The Dock with Lance Jackman today to begin recording their new album. The as-yet-untitled full-length will be released later this year with tours to follow. Further details to be announced soon.
From the depths of the unknown canyon comes a rock force that has undeniable power and style. Steeped in ancient tradition and ritualistic sacrifices this force continually bludgeons the masses who are compelled to witness them. Their heavy riffs continually snap the necks of anyone sent to challenge them. The wild thunder broom undertones growl from on high, and will never be denied. Powerful rhythms shake the very ground they walk on, and those who are lucky enough to witness this spine crushing quartet will undoubtedly never be the same. Anthony the riff Lord, Lennon the bass wizard, Lance the heaviest of shred, and Jess the power thwack and thud will always leave your neck barely able to hold your head up. HORSENECK, shredders and defenders of the rock!
“Album opener ‘Bird Worried’ features an organ, bluesy guitar parts and a combination of clean and harsh vocals. It highlights HORSENECK’s biggest strength on Heavy Trip — their music isn’t what might be expected and it can be silly, but they bring it together well. There are more aggressive cuts on the album too, like ‘Lester Vitalis’ and ‘No Gods,’ that rely on thicker, fuzzier riffs but HORSENECK never fail to deliver something memorable.” — Decibel
“…a solid blend of metal, hardcore, garage, and southern rock… a fun listen that packed with some cool riffs and plenty of reasons to wreck your neck.” — Super Corrupter
“…a catchy and heavy release that is extremely fun to listen to…hard rock with [a] heavy, bruising sludge.” — Svbtterranean
“…a fantastic record throughout… The songs are unique, and never feel like the band is stuck in a formula. The compositions are tight and although varied, never disjointed. The production on this album is exactly what’s needed. It is heavy, not overly processed, and the mix allows all of the instruments and sounds to intermingle naturally – even with such dense arrangements.” — Riffs Or GTFO
“Heavy Trip isn’t just a solid album but it feels like a statement of intent that rock ‘n’ roll is still very much alive…. The album is heavy, catchy and above all else, it’s fun and a genuine pleasure to listen to…” – Altwire
“Heavy Trip is an album that more than lives up to its name as it’s a heavy, psychedelic trip and one that will appeal to fans of The Melvins, Queens Of The Stone Age, Indian Handcrafts, and Red Fang the most… Heavy Trip is perhaps one of the strangest and most addictive records you’ll hear this year.” — Outlaws Of The Sun
