BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH, led by Seattle music legend Tad Doyle (TAD, HOG MOLLY), has joined with fellow Pacific Northwest heavies MICO DE NOCHE and Violent Hippy Records to bring you a very limited (500 copies) debut vinyl release. It is available for preorder now at www.taddoyle.com; select independent record stores will have copies for sale on October 13.

BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH fill Side A with over 12 minutes of epic riffage in the form of "Fires Burn Dim in the Shadows of the Mountain". At turns bludgeoning, charging, and psychedelic, Doyle and bandmates Peggy Tully (INCITING RIOTS) on bass and Aaron DC Edge (HIMSA, I AM THE THORN) on drums take the listener on a cinematically aural journey to Doomsville. Imagine a tribe of cro-magnon nomads inventing not the wheel, but giant loud-ass tube amps and finding alien blueprints for some pre-Bonham set of mammoth Ludwigs. Recorded by Tad at Studio Witch Ape, you could say it's heavy, and you'd be right.

MICO DE NOCHE drops two audio bombs on the B side — "Ganges" and "Misanthrope". Ripping and throbbing through themes of death and hate (metal?!?!?!), the Northwest's best kept secret unleash chooglin', galloping sludge like it was your goddamn birthday.

Formed in 2001, the duo of Donovan Stewart and Mike Clam have expanded Mico De Noche in recent years to include Chad Baker (bass) and Reno Dave (drums). Reno Dave is actually from…..wait for it… Reno. Tony Dallas Reed (STONE AXE, MOS GENERATOR) captured the band's angst and joy at Temple Sound in Port Orchard, Washington.

A record-release show is set for October 10 at Seattle's Comet Tavern. BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH and MICO DE NOCHE will be joined by MADRASO and BLACK ELK.
