Dead Meadow Release Performance Video For "In The Thicket"

Los Angeles psych-rock outfit Dead Meadow has released a video of a live performance of new song “In The Thicket.” The video was filmed recently at Sonos Studio and offers a high-fidelity listen to song from their long-awaited new album, Warble Womb. The 75 minute double-album is to be released worldwide via their own Xemu Records imprint and will be available in digital format on October 7th and in both LP and CD on November 25th.

Resurfacing from a long inner trip, this is the band’s first new material since their ambitious LP + DVD project, The Three Kings (Xemu Records 2010). It also marks the first album to feature returning original member and contributing songwriter Mark Laughlin (drums) since 2001’s classic, Howls From The Hills.

The reunited original trio of Laughlin, Jason Simon (guitar/vocals) and Steven Kille (bass) self-produced Warble Womb on their own time with no outside pressure. The result combines the fantasy and mystic rock pop they are known for with elements of other influences peeking through including dub and varied strains of classic rock. Warble Womb is both heavy psych with a groove and the perfect modern “head” album for the resurgence of vinyl culture.

In recent years Dead Meadow has toured the U.S. and Europe with The Black Angels, Sweet Apple, Spindrift, The Strangers Family Band, Super Furry Animals, BJM, Dino Jr. and more. The band will be hitting Europe this September on tour and will do a North American run in support of Warble Womb this winter.
