Wo Fat new Album on the way and reissues news
Texas psychedelic doom veterans WO FAT announce new album on Ripple Music; first three records to be available for the first time in the US!Chief purveyors of Texas-sized psychedelic doom WO FAT once again team up with Ripple Music for the upcoming release of their awaited seventh studio album — and followup to 2017's acclaimed 'Midnight Cometh' — next year. Ripple Music is also set to reissue the trio's first three albums in the coming months, making these long out-of-print classics available to North American fans for the very first time. Over the course of a sonic odyssey which spans six studio albums, one live recording and two splits, Texas' very own psychedelic doom mongers WO FAT have stayed true to the deep, dark blues that wail from within and have continually infused their riffs with primal grooves. Having secured their legendary status within the stoner rock community by appearing on much coveted bills at Roadburn, Desertfest, Freak Valley Festival, Hellfest and Psycho Las Vegas, their latest release and collaboration with Ripple Music, 'Live Juju: Freak Valley' seemed to be the perfect follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2017 album 'Midnight Cometh'. While WO FAT have just confirmed the release of their seventh full-length in the fall of 2021, Ripple Music will repress the band's long out-of-print Nasoni Records albums from days past, starting with 'Psychedelonaut' (2009) in the spring of 2021, followed by 'The Gathering Dark' (2006) and 'Noche Del Chupacabra' (2011) in 2022. All upcoming reissues will be available on black vinyl and limited edition colored vinyl with new liner notes, for the first time ever to North American fans.
