TRUE WIDOW, the Dallas-based trio known for creating hauntingly beautiful heavy music, has signed to New York-based Kemado Records. The band's new album is scheduled for a March 2011 release.
TRUE WIDOW, comprised of singer/guitar player DH Phillips, singer/bass player Nicole Estill and drummer Slim Texas, has described its music as "stonegaze" while numerous outlets have offered their take on the band's slowcore-meets-rock hybrid. Spinner described TRUE WIDOW's music as "morphine-induced melodies dripping with haunting, heartfelt lyrics...," Punk News said true widow does "to Autolux what BLACK SABBATH did to metal" and hometown weeklyThe Dallas Observer described the band's self-titled 2008 debut as simply "incredible." Retail supporters Aquarius Records enthusiastically shared these words with their customers, "Every song here is practically perfect, and each one segues seamlessly into the next, the sort of record where you don't just remember the melody or the lyrics, but which songs comes next, and how long the pause between songs is, the sound just so hypnotic and mesmerizing, a sort of lyseric doom pop, a druggy post rock, but the thing is, none of that really explains how addictive these songs seem to be. Literally, from the moment we first heard this record, we have not been able to stop listening to it."
The band's next live outing is scheduled for November 19 at Club Dada in Dallas.
