Holy Fawn share music video for "Dark Stone" as latest album Death Spells sees release
March 31, 2019
Holy Fawn, the Phoenix based band who describe themselves as “four creatures making loud heavy pretty noises, release a video for “Dark Stone” as the band’s buzzed about under-the-radar album, Death Spells, gets a proper release via Triple Crown Records (home to Caspian and Covet).
Death Spells initially received a DIY, regional release in 2018, with the band’s friend putting out the 10-song album via his label, Whelmed Records. Word about the young band began to grow out of the Southwest with fans and friends sharing the songs and “Drag Me Into The Woods” music video via social media, eventually tipping off a handful of in-the-know writers and musicians.
Stereogum proclaimed it as one of the “Top 50 Records of 2018,” New Noise dubbed it a “sonic adventure,” and Heavy Blog Is Heavy/Arctic Drones’ writer David Zeidler saying, “ a little-known indie band from Arizona being touted as the next big thing by respected musicians isn’t something I’m likely to gloss over lightly… I was sufficiently impressed, but it wasn’t until the band released the first single from Death Spells, ‘Arrows’… that I fully realized how exciting and potentially important this band could be.” Thrice’s Riley Breckenridge said he “literally had goosebumps for a majority of my first listen” and Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe offered, “listening from top-to-bottom will take you on a trance-inducing journey.”
Holy Fawn recently kicked off a western U.S. tour, the remaing dates are:
April 3 San Jose, CA Ritz April 4 Oakland, CA Elbo Room April 5 Eugene, OR HiFi Music Hall April 6 Portland, OR High Water April 7 Seattle, WA Vera Project April 9 Salt Lake City, UT Diabolical Records April 10 Las Vegas, NV Shawteau
