Sludge quartet He Whose Ox Is Gored have released a music video for their new track “Paralyzer”, the band’s first video ever. The song is the title track of a new 7″ that will see its official release on June 16th via Chain Letter Collective and their own label Void Assault Records. The band tracked it with produced Jack Endino (Soundgarden, Nirvana, L7, High On Fire, Zeke etc.) at Avast! Recording Studio (Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Earth, Supersuckers etc.) as part of a Converse Rubber Tracks session. In addition to the new song, the 7″ includes remixes of “Buried Twice” and “Void Assault” – off their critically-lauded Rumors EP – remixed by their cohorts in Newaxeyes. The group offered:
“The ‘Paralyzer’ seven-inch started as a great opportunity presented to us by Converse Rubber Tracks and Jack Endino. We also wanted to find a way to work with our friends in Newaxeyes and a seven-inch came to mind. When Ben and Heather Heywood of Los Angeles’ Chain Letter Collective came on board, it created an opportunity for us to bring it all together.”
Though the official release is about a month away, the group will have copies of it today at their special show with Conan, North, and Serial Hawk at Highline in Seattle, Oregon. This week will also see the beginning of their U.S. tour with Samothrace. You can find the schedule for the trek at this location.
