Seattle loud rock trio SANDRIDER today presents their latest video for “Alia.” Now playing at Treble, the track comes by way of their latest full-length, Enveletration, out now on Satanik Royalty Records.

Writes Treble, “Seattle stoner metal group SANDRIDER – featuring former members of Akimbo and Tight Bros from Way Back When – released their fourth album Enveletration, a heroic slab of big riffs and brawny low-end. Today, the group have shared a new video from the album for its leadoff track, ‘Alia.’ The new clip is edited and directed by Sean Donavan, and shot by Michael Cooper, and it’s a raw, lo-fi performance clip that showcases the band simply tearing it up in a room the old-fashioned way. Which is all you need with a song like this, which goes big on crushing guitars and wrecking-ball heaviness. It’s a monster of a song, and a super fun video at that.”

Adds the band, “We shot this video in the show space of Bar House which unfortunately no longer hosts shows. It’s a huge bummer to lose that space. If anything, the video can be an addendum to the Bar House live show tombstone. Pour one out!”

Recorded at Litho Studios in Seattle by Matt Bayles (Soundgarden, Mastodon, Botch), Enveletration proves that SANDRIDER’s adrenaline-charged fun and unconquerable spirit is yet again a sonic refuge where you’re temporarily invincible. Across its ten tracks, the record captures the utter relief SANDRIDER – guitarist/vocalist Jon Weisnewski (Akimbo, Nuclear Dudes), bassist Jesse Roberts (The Ruby Doe, Kid Congo Powers, Old Iron), and drummer Nat Damm (Akimbo, Head Like A Kite, Automaton, Tight Bros From Way Back When) –  felt when returning to the practice space for the first time after a year of early-pandemic isolation and anxiety. The experience of waking their stacks of amplifiers from their dormancy, feeling the drums rattle their chests and the bass vibrate through the floor, and reveling in the indescribably euphoric return to writing music together in person is palpable. The end result is a nod to Seattle heavy-rock forefathers Soundgarden with their “break my rusty cage and run” attitude, mixed with the unrelenting, stage dive-off-the-bar energy of Refused and noisy noodling of Hot Snakes.

Enveletration is out now on Satanik Royalty Records on vinyl and digital formats. Find physical orders at THIS LOCATION and digital orders at THIS LOCATION.

“Enveletration is a wonder to be explored, engaged with, and appreciated; a miracle of the everyday that doesn’t come along every day.” – The Obelisk

“Enveletration is just the top shelf of loud rock just as ready for the stereo as it is for the stage. Not a single song dips below greatness, and even when things are a bit softer and slower, there’s a constant propulsion forward, a progression that’s undeniably infectious and invigorating… Enveletration is a signal of triumph, of victory indeed, and a reminder that sometimes simplicity carries the most value.” – Everything Is Noise

“…if you want some grungy, noisy, and catchy, loud rock filled with memorable riffs, then look no further. Enveletration is a triumphant display of rock mastery that will not only get you to bang your head and pump your fists, but also put a smile on your face. It will make you feel like you can take on the world, which isn’t an easy feat, given the state of the world right now. In fact, it’s one of the best loud rock records this year.” – New Noise Magazine

“Enveletration is an album that’s brimming with action packed, grooves and meaty riffs that allows SANDRIDER to create highly original sounds of their own. The album benefits from first rate production values that gives the band a more compelling sound compared to their previous albums with Enveletration becoming an essential album to listen to, fully explore and add to your own record collection. Simply unmissable…” – Outlaws Of The Sun

“Seattle will always be known as the home of a number of really amazing rock bands, and with Enveletration, SANDRIDER is keeping Seattle’s flame alive. If your tastes fall anywhere between Mastodon and Fugazi, you’re going to find a lot to love on Enveletration.” – Metal Epidemic

“…a celebration from start to finish with equal parts old school Baroness, Unsane, early At The Drive-In, and ASG somewhere in the mix as well as a whole lotta heft, heaviness, and heart.” – Rock And Roll Fables

“To say Enveletration is a dizzying display of heavy, noisy rock would be an understatement. Enveletration is again produced by the band’s longtime producer, the inimitable Matt Bayles, and as with their previous records, it sounds absolutely fantastic as all of the instrumentation is crisp, loud and clear in the mix.” – The Sleeping Shaman
