HULL: Live Video Footage Posted; Band Continues To Ravage Audiences Across The U.S.

Brooklyn sludge rock collective HULL are currently on tour flooring audiences across the country with their sonic wall of triple-guitar led, conceptual enormity. If you’ve yet to witness HULL in the live setting, a full video stream of the band’s pummeling set at the Drunken Unicorn in Atlanta can be viewed at THIS LOCATION.

Commented the band in a collective statement from the road: “The tour has been wonderful so far! The Fucking Wrath is to California as Caltrop is to North Carolina… brothas from anotha’ motha! Some shows are better than others, but all in all, we’ve been having a great time with no detriment… yet! New lingo has been added to the tour encyclopedia: Road Soda and Night Zoo. Unfortunately, you will have to figure them out on your own. We have seen Craig (TFW) naked and most of HULL has already gotten tourtoos, and we are barely two weeks in! More to come soon.”

HULL is touring in support of their recently unleashed epic, Beyond The Lightless Sky, which has earned critical praise from fans and media alike. Pop Matters called the offering, “a determined and significant release, and one thoroughly deserving of a lot more visibility in the realms of heaving, epic metal,” Exclaim commended the band for creating something “immense and nimble; ponderous and powerful,” while Teeth Of The Divine — a review for which plucked for their Album Of The Day last week — noted, “The balance is still there between traditional ebbing post rock builds and hues and epic mountainous crescendos, but when HULL put their foot on the pedal its much more gravel than sludge.” Metal Maniacs agreed: “They do have the sludge/post-metal spine, and that’s important, but their willingness to bloom beyond is what should keep HULL special and relevant well into the future,” while Slug Magazine added: “There is a fantastic amount of riffs you’re going to want to repeatedly hear on this record. Couple that with some guitar solos that come out of nowhere and fit like gloves with the album’s songwriting and its layered vocal approach, and you’ve got a hell of a ride.”

Released via The End Records last month, Beyond The Lightless Sky, was co-produced by Brett Romnes, mixed by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, Melvins, et al).and features guest appearances by vocalist Jarboe, keys/ambiance by Fade Kainer(Batillus/Jarboe/Inswarm ) and cello by Joe Merolla with artwork by Tamara Waite-Santibanez.
