TURN ME ON DEAD MAN: new album “Heavymetal Mothership” coming out this fall

We’re already working on the next album! It’s been a fun time playing bass on these songs and we’re looking forward to working with Heavy Psych Sounds. This is what I’ve been up to recently.

San Francisco based heavy psych freaks TURN ME ON DEAD MAN have confirmed the release of their new full-length ?Heavymetal Mothership? on October 13th via Heavy Psych Sounds. 

?Heavymetal Mothership? is the 5th release by the San Franciscan heavydelic space rock behemoth known as TURN ME ON DEAD MAN. Secrets of sound, hidden bases on the moon, trans-humanism: it?s all in here. Apocalypse rock for the end of the world or the soundtrack to a mothership invasion? You decide. ?Heavymetal Mothership? is both incredibly heavy and totally far out psyche!

The bands twin guitar harmonization, melodic rhythmic switchbacks and trippy apocalypto-mystical lyricism keep California?s psychedelic rock tradition alive. In their own words: ?mind melt music for the sick and twisted, heavydelic super rock for the ultimate freak outs?.

TURN ME ON DEAD MAN ?Heavymetal Mothership?
Out October 13th on Heavy Psych Sounds
Presale starts September 15th

TRACK LISTING:

Hi there…it’s Wendy here this time. Things have been a bit quiet on the public front of the Andalusia Rose camp, but lots is happening behind the scenes. The past few months have been monopolized by a big move for me from Oakland to Morongo Valley, just outside of Joshua Tree. I’m loving the desert life, full of coyotes, rabbits, roadrunners, spiders and some recent owl sightings! The simple things. The quiet and the dark have been quite inspiring for me, to say the least.

There is a rich artistic and musical community here, and I’m looking forward to deepening my roots in that. I recently attended the Desert Generator Festival at Pappy & Harriets, a 5-band show featuring Earthless, Brant Bjork, Orchid, The Shrine, and Black Rainbows, along with the Rolling Heavy custom van show. We mingled with the stars, including Brant Bjork and Riding Easy Records honcho Daniel…
