Italy’s most solid fuzzy outfits BLACK RAINBOWS just unveiled the release date and artwork for their fourth full-length, to be released via renowned music label Heavy Psych Sounds. Entitled « Hawkdope », the record will hit the stores worldwide on March 14th.

According to the band, « Hawkdope is a perfect mix between Monster Magnet, Hawkwind and Fu Manchu. It’s a psychedelic, lysergic storm of heavy space rock« . Its splendid coloured artwork was made by Italian artist Solomacello.
« Hawkdope » will be released in Golden vinyl, LTD Violet vinyl, Ultra LTD Yellow Splatter Multicolour Vinyl, CD and Digital formats via the band’s label Heavy Psych Sounds. Distribution will be handled by Cargo Germany, Goodfellas, Clear Spot, All That’s Heavy and the best record stores and mailorders.
 
Founded by Gabriele Fiori in Rome and joined by Dario Iocca and Alberto Croce, Italian psych fuzz trio BLACK RAINBOWS sounds like a bastard child of the 70’s hard rock swagger and the 90’s stoner groove, with all the boldness that you can expect. When Black Sabbath and MC5 meet in a car crash with Nebula and Fu Manchu in the middle of the desert. Since their beginnings, the band hasn’t stayed idle, touring across Europe and the US many times and playing the likes of Duna Jam, Desertfest or Stoned From The Underground.
After three tasty full-lengths and a couple of EP’s – including one split record with LA’s space rockers Farflung, BLACK RAINBOWS are set to release their fourth album to date « Hawkdope » via renowned Italy-based mothership Heavy Psych Sounds. The heavy rock whirlwind hailing from italy still has a lot of infectious hooks in store for you, and they’re ready to blow your speakers off!
