The entire second gut-wrenching collaborative opus from American doom/rock icon, SCOTT “WINO” WEINRICH, and German singer/songwriter, CONNY OCHS, Freedom Conspiracy is out in mere days via Exile On Mainstream. As this collection of diversified, utterly soul-crumbling hymns are finally ready to be publicly released this week, Vice Magazine’s online music entity, Noisey, has interrogated both artists on how the new collaboration came to be a reality and much more. Following a trail of singles released through the likes of Classic Rock Magazine, The Obelisk, Revolver and others, Noisey is now exclusively streaming the entire glorious, thirteen-song Freedom Conspiracy LP through various international channels alongside the transcripts of the interviews with WINO & CONNY OCHS, days ahead of its worldwide release.

Freedom Conspiracy sees release on March 31st, and Earsplit Distro is proud to be the exclusive stateside distributor of the LP. Imported from Germany, the vinyl version is pressed on 180-gram black vinyl in a reverse board sleeve with thermographic print and an extensive booklet, the CD packaged in a mini-gatefold with booklet and matt laminate varnish. Preorders can be placed in the US right HERE and internationally direct through Germany’s awesome Exile On Mainstream Records HERE.
WINO & CONNY OCHS‘ Freedom Conspiracy boasts thirteen anthems of top-tier contemporary Americana, tales of regret, love, loss and redemption come alive through the dynamic dual guitarist and singer/songwriter approach of these two iconic artists. Recorded at Kabumm Studio in Berlin, Germany with producer Thommy Krawallo, as was their Heavy Kingdom LP, the newest collection of ambitious, harrowing and beautiful music created by WINO & CONNY OCHS not only brings forth the same quality of organically conceived folk/rock fans of the previous album should expect, it simply excels in every imaginable aspect. Fusing acoustic and electric guitars and with both artists’ standout vocal styles searing through these thirteen well-crafted brand new hymns, the album delivers forty-five minutes of some of the most refined, dynamic and unforgettable folk/rock music in years.
While CONNY OCHS takes to European clubs with a string of solo gigs this week, WINO leaves for tour on US soil in one week, providing direct solo support for Zakk Wylde and Black Label Society on a special twelve-city US trek from April 3rd through the 19th. Plans for collaborative tours in both North America and Europe for the coming months in support of Freedom Conspiracy are also being forged.
