Brooding southern doom-punk quartet, WAILIN STORMS, has released the first single from their impending One Foot In The Flesh Grave debut LP, which is on course for arrival via Magic Bullet Records in November.
Cvlt Nation premieres the first single from One Foot In The Flesh Grave, offering an exclusive early listen to “Don’t Forget The Sun,” their accompanying write-up including, “So what happens when a band cooks up a bunch of songs that defy genres and is able to channel their influences through the lens of honesty? This is just the case with WAILIN STORMS, whose soon to be released album One Foot In The Flesh Grave sounds like a morbid plate of hot grits covered in zombie blood. This band knows how to write songs that channel the Gothic past of the south while still keeping the ghost of Robert Johnson happy. Have a dark fucking open mind – let the WAILIN STORMS blow right in, and you will not be disappointed!”
Let the grim flow of WAILIN STORMS’ “Don’t Forget The Sun” drown you via Cvlt Nation RIGHT HERE.

Led by ominous, blues-driven vocals reminiscent of Samhain and early Danzig, Durham, North Carolina-based WAILIN STORMS merges doom punk and harrowing rock into something fans of TSOL, Social Distortion, Murder City Devils, Laughing Hyenas, Hot Water Music, Pussy Galore and Clockcleaner alike will find themselves immersed in. Following 2011’s Bone Colored Moon and 2014’s Shiver EPs, the band now prepares to unveil their sprawling full-length recording. Recorded and mixed at Warrior Sound, by Al Jacob and mastered by Carl Saff, One Foot In The Flesh Grave serves as a warning shot to all things safe, prescribed, and banal; these seven songs of deep, dark, swampy and catchy-as-all-hell new material serve as hymns for the ongoing funeral procession of everyday life. Crossing its path bestows the karmic powers of a black cat in reverse. Completed with artwork by Bruno Guerreiro of Decibel Magazine, One Foot In The Flesh Grave will help make WAILIN STORMS a household name to all as the album makes its grim rising this harvest season.
