L.A. psych rockers THE FREEKS to issue new album « Crazy World » on April 27th via Heavy Psych Sounds!
Los Angeles psychedelic rock’n’rollers THE FREEKS are back with their fourth album « Crazy World » this spring on Heavy Psych Sounds Records.
Los Angeles’ THE FREEKS know that as the Earth revolves, the Sun and the Universe infinitely expand, it must be shared with as many different kinds of life as there are stars. A bold statement coming from a bunch of Freeks. This is not a new concept, however, an ever recurring one, dating back to Ezekiel’s biblical account to even further back with evidence from ancient Egypt and Mayan times. After 4,000 years, the theory continues strong as we enter 2018.
THE FREEKS enter 2018 with the completion of their fourth full length and second HPS Records release, “Crazy World”. A studio album comprising of eight songs that take you on a psychedelic journey from hidden moonlit distilleries, all the way up to the Mothership and back down to Mother Earth. It could have happened in 2700 BC and it’s definitely happening again now as the foursome continues to ferment their ethanol infused fuzz rock, beading their songwriting to reflect a heavier content and extract added amounts of psychoactive chemicals from the minds of their listeners.
Available March 27th on Heavy Psych Sounds Records
