The Well’s New Song Is A Psychedelic Goth Dream

Stream the dark, danceable first single from their new record, Death And Consolation.

An album titled Death and Consolation certainly tips the listener off to a darker, more introspective subject matter than is usually taken on by many stoner-doom or heavy-psych bands. But it perfectly encapsulates the new record from Austin, Texas’ heavy-riffing trio The Well: Their third album, which is coming out on April 26th via Riding Easy Records, is their their most intimate, darkly personal record yet.

Vocalist/guitarist Ian Graham comments, “2018 was a strange, dark year. A lot of change going on in my life, there was a lot of depression and coming out of it over the last year. I wanted to call this Death and Consolation because in life, that’s a constant.”

Death And Consolation 4000

Death and Consolation is also The Well’s least-produced and most concise album thus far, taking them out of the doom corner and giving it a raw, post-punk feel that’s as apt for kicking back and smoking a joint as it is for goth night. The first single from the record, The Raven (which we’re premiering below), sounds like a Satanic, downtuned Steppenwolf, and frankly we can’t get enough.

Kick off your shoes, hit play, close your eyes, and get lost in it.

You can preorder Death And Consolation right here.
