About the song, Bob Balch comments: « Clocking in at a little under 20 minutes, The Long Morrow was the very first jam we did as this line-up, » explains guitarist Bob Balch. « It took us about 30 seconds to fall into a groove and we didn’t surface for 30 minutes. After editing it down and changing guitar parts around, it was sent to Reeves Gabrels and Per Wiberg to add respectively guitars and synth. Then it was sent to Tony Reed for vocals and more overdubs. We are super proud of this jam, and look ahead into the future as this is only the beginning.«
All songs on the ‘The Long Morrow’ album come from a three-day jam session tracked in Joshua Tree in the fall of 2019, from which their latest EP ‘Lavender Blues’ also originated. Stream and download the album’s previous singles « LeDü », « Murder Klipp » and « Lavender Bleu » on Bandcamp.
New album ‘The Long Morrow’
Out January 14th on Heavy Psych Sounds – PREORDER
BIG SCENIC NOWHERE is the ambitious project formed by Bob Balch (Fu Manchu) and Gary Arce (Yawning Man) on guitar, quickly joined by Tony Reed (Mos Generator) on bass, vocals and keyboards, and Bill Stinson (Yawning Man) on drums. The foursome is a creative force of nature, a combination of talents whose respective desert, psych, classic and progressive rock backgrounds became one to form a transcending, uplifting and finely crafted brand of rock. Itis simply the heart of what collaboration should manifest. Jamming. Sharing music. Developing chemistry to build something new based on their individual experiences. Something that grows stronger for the cohesion between those who make it happen.
The band issued their debut album ‘Vision Beyond Horizon’ in early 2020 through European powerhouse Heavy Psych Sounds, also featuring appearances from the likes of Mario Lalli, Alain Johannes, Nick Oliveri, and various other guests. Following closely, the ‘Lavender Blues’ EPstabilized the four-piece lineup around Tony Reed (also featuring special appearances from former Opeth Per Wiberg and Voivod’s Daniel Mongrain), consequently shifting from the fuzzy and psych-laden desert rock of the beginnings to a more progressive and prismatic rock enhanced by Reed’s warm production style. BIG SCENIC NOWHERE is now set to issue their sophomore full-length ‘The Long Morrow’ in the fall of 2021 through Heavy Psych Sounds.
BIG SCENIC NOWHERE is:
Tony Reed (Mos Generator) — vocals, bass, synth
Bob Balch (Fu Manchu) — guitar
Gary Arce (Yawning Man) — guitar
Bill Stinson (Yawning Man) — drums
