London heavydelic trio BRIGHT CURSE is ready to hit the studio this summer to record their debut album, set to release by the end of 2014.
After a critically acclaimed debut EP Bright Curse released in November 2012 and re-edited by German label Bilocation Records/Kozmik Artifactz in 2013, the psychedelic doom trio formed by Romain Daut (guitar & vocals), Zach Mizzi (drums) and Jack Boughton (bass) is finally fully ready to record their debut album. This July, BRIGHT CURSE will head to Skyhammer Studio in Cheshire for one week, to lay down their cosmic ideas and heavy riffage. The album will be recorded and produced by CONAN's Chris Fielding and Jon Davis.
Here are a few words from BRIGHT CURSE's frontman Romain about the upcoming events: "It's been a long time since we've been looking for the right producer to work on our second record. We really wanted to reinforce the thickness of our sound, make it deeper and heavier, and get a real homogeneity between the psychedelic and heavy parts. I think that working with a member of Conan as well as a man who worked with Electric Wizard and Serpent Venom will definitely help in that way. We are really looking forward to it!".
More infos about the album will be given in due time, but for now, check out their debut EP Bright Curse on brightcurse.bandcamp.com and let the magic flow through your speakers...
“A must have for all rock fans, not just the doom/stoner rock crowd. This is an album that can be enjoyed by and self respecting rock fans. Excellent and highly recommended” The Sludgelord
"Part stoner, part psychedelic, part fuzz, part doom and all rock, these five songs manage to straddle moods and genres without sounding forced or contrived and the result is a thoroughly enjoyable listen.” The Sleeping Shaman
« Fans of subtle psychedelic stoner should really get hold of this dreamy and haunting debut record, as it clearly stands above what most of North European outfits have been used to deliver lately. » Desert-Rock
SHORT BIO: In May 2012, Bright Curse rose in London from the ashes of Soul Manifest. After the dissolution of his first band, Romain decided to create a heavier and deeper sound. An unexpected house-party jam and a few rehearsals later, Sammy (bass) and Zach (drums) officially joined in and all agreed to say that the alchemy was in the air. Five months later, the expatriate French trio brought their first EP to life with the help of J.B Pilon, their friend and producer at Rock Of London Studios. With Brad Boatright's final touch on mastering and Abbey Watkins' fantastic artwork, the EP was finally complete. It didn’t take long until Bright Curse gained international recognition thanks to their unique sound imprint, gathering more and more fans worldwide and getting positive reviews in the most followed webzines (The Sludgelord, The Obelisk, The Sleeping Shaman). Between 2013 and 2014, BRIGHT CURSE played the stage of Desertfest London, Up In Smoke Fest to name a few, and also went on a full-on UK tour along with heavy mongers Wight and Trippy Wicked & The Cosmic Children Of the Knight. The band is now established with full-time bass player Jack Boughton, and ready to crush the European stages even more!
