Witchcryer sign to Ripple Music and Announce new album and "CRY WITCH" FALL 2017 MIDWEST U.S. TOUR
Ripple Music is proud to welcome WITCHCRYER to their growing roster of the best heavy psych, stoner and doom bands on the planet. Witchcryer are a 4-piece old-school doom metal band as indebted to the heavy rock muscle of Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, and Blue Oyster Cult as their doom descendants Witchfinder General, Trouble, and St. Vitus. Their mix of influences puts emphasis on strong riffs, memorable hooks and dynamic strong structures.
Based in Austin, Texas, Witchcryer was created by guitarist Jason Muxlow during his time with Chicago doom band, Earthen Grave (Ripple Music). The band became his priority when he moved to Austin in early 2015 and began co-writing songs with drummer Javi Moctezuma. “The Preying Kind” demo was recorded and released after vocalist/lyricist, Suzy Bravo joined the band later that year. Reviews of the demo noted “this Austin band is definitely going places,” (Doomed and Stoned) and, “if I owned a label I wouldn’t be able to sign this band fast enough” (Thy Demons Be Scribblin).
With the final addition of San Antonio bassist Marilyn Monroe (Pillcrusher, ex-Las Cruces), Witchcryer played its first show in April 2016. Live, the band has been described as an “onslaught” and “revelatory” with Bravo singled out as “a powerful and amazing stage presence” (Negalithic) and “my new favorite female vocalist” (Desert Drowning).
Now, Witchcryer joins with the force that is Ripple Music to release their debut album, "Cry Witch", due to drop world-wide on January 19th. About their recent signing to Ripple, guitarist Jason Muxlow says, "Witchcryer is beyond stoked to be joining the Ripple family! We can't wait to get "Cry Witch" out in the world and tear some people new eardrums."
In support of the upcoming album, Witchcryer will hit the road with tour dates across the midwest.
