Exile On Mainstream presents the new Worlds Collide LP by groove-heavy German blues/doom rock trio TRICKY LOBSTERS, setting the record for June release, and issuing an official video for the track “Bitter Man’s Fame.”
If the term “insider tip” wasn’t so drawn-out, it could be repeatedly used to describe TRICKY LOBSTERS. From noise to punk rock in the early years, from rock’n’roll to the gnarly sludge blues rock on their prior LP, The Blue Hospital Conspiracy, their body of work includes pretty much everything with a noisy edge. After nearly four years in the wilderness, but their legacy not unsung, the Baltic Sea-based band continues their travels in a kind of western-driven, grand finale and face off in an epic clash of stories, riffs and drama on Worlds Collide.
Engineered and produced by drummer Jörg Peters at Blue Hospital in Rostock in 2017, the three northerners follow diverse paths through rock history and bind them together on Worlds Collide, their sixth official release to date. Now in their twenty-first year of existence, with Worlds Collide, TRICKY LOBSTERS present trademark groove and riffs, born from melodies and lyrics deeply rooted in old and recurring stories of love, dreams and deception. The record paints a vivid picture of their current world, and the one behind them.
TRICKY LOBSTERS present a video for the track “Bitter Man’s Fame.” the first single from Worlds Collide, the video filmed by Christian Thiele and edited by Michael Gröper and Rainer Hochmuth.
