Lisbon-based retro rock bringers MISS LAVA are pleased to unveil a new video for “Sleepy Warm.” The track comes off the band’s most recent full-length, Doom Machine, released last year via Small Stone Records and Kozmik Artifactz.

MISS LAVA‘s “Sleepy Warm” video was captured during the Evil Twins Tour with Dollar Llama. The week-long trek saw both bands play some of Portugal’s most iconic clubs. “Sleepy Warm” was directed, filmed, and edited by Manuel Portugal at RCA Club in Lisbon and Salão Brazil in Coimbra with extra camera work at RCA Club by Pedro Lopes.

Elaborates guitarist K. Raffah, “It was awesome to get back on the road after Covid, especially on this tour with our brothers Dollar Llama. I guess this video is a great way to celebrate the Portuguese rock n’ roll spirit!”

Adds director Manuel Portugal, “My main goal was to capture the energy of the band live, so that everyone that sees the video can channel the same vibrations as those who watch the show.”

Doom Machine was recorded live at Generator Music Studios in Sintra, Portugal by Miguel “Veg” Marques, and stands as MISS LAVA’s densest output to date soaked in kaleidoscopic riffing and hypnotic interludes. A multi-textured, mind-bending audio excursion, Doom Machine carries with it the warmth and soul of a band full of fresh vigor and perhaps the demons of these tumultuous times.

Doom Machine is out now on CD and digitally. Find ordering options at THIS LOCATION where the record can be streamed in full.

Doom Machine is the successor to MISS LAVA’s Dominant Rush EP (2017), Sonic Debris (2016), Red Supergiant (2013), and Blues For The Dangerous Miles (2009) – named by Loud Magazine as one of the Top 5 Portuguese Albums Of The Year – as well as a limited edition self-titled blood red vinyl EP (2008).

“It’s as heavy as it is melodic as it is psychedelic, and if you’re unfamiliar with MISS LAVA but into anything from Blue Cheer to Uncle Acid to King Gizzard, you should check this out.” – BrooklynVegan

“…the first essential stoner metal release of 2021.” – Outlaws Of The Sun

“Doom Machine was borne out of a duality of existence, blessed with the burden of life and wracked by the loss of it. It represents the beating heart as much as the ash it will inevitably turn to. MISS LAVA feels profoundly primal with their execution of stoner rock, running hot and unchained like a volcanic eruption.” – Everything Is Noise

“Talk about accuracy in a description. Small Stone Records heralds ‘the finest in fuzz since 1995,’ and this new album from Lisbon, Portugal, doom groovers MISS LAVA more than delivers with killer tracks such as ‘Fourth Dimension’… With plenty of retro feel married to some pretty surprising turns – the short instrumental pauses are all oozing psychedelic echo.” – Vancouver Sun
