ABOUT THE ARTIST
A bombastic, and crushing new track
Simpsons Doom juggernauts Dr. Colossus release first new music in 2 years and announce suitably colossal Australian tour. Melbourne’s greatest Springfieldian doom band are back after a TV induced slumber.
A bombastic, and crushing new track ’Sixty Six & Six’ is the first studio recording the band has released since the tragic passing of one of it’s founding members and drummer Nathan Johnston in late 2007.
The track tackles the lamely rebellious ways of Rod and Todd Flanders as they refuse to go to church (on a Saturday) and utter hell-no’s to any damn vegetables.
Dr. Colossus shows off their signature lumbering sound this time with a nod to 80’s inspired choruses and choral backings. Mastered in the US by Alan Douches (High on Fire, Mastodon, Clutch) the vinyl masters are gigantic, rich and as colourful as the Glenn Smith Illustration on it’s cover.
2 Exclusive editions are available for pre-order through Tuff Cuff Records and are limited to 66 copies each: The ‘Sacrificial Blood Splatter’ Variant (SOLD OUT) and the ‘Mystery’ Variant (SOLD OUT). A handful of Deluxe Tour Edition 'Grey for Moleman Variant (Complete with Die-Hard Mirrored Cover and Pin) & Test Pressings are also available for vinyl enthusiasts. Side 66 features ‘Sixty Six & Six’ and side 6 features a live cut of ‘Excellent’ from the band’s tribute show to Nathan Johnston. The song and release is dedicated to his memory. The band will launch the Limited Edition 7” vinyl and hit the road with a long list of great, heavy Australian bands in September for their largest tour to date.
