The Obsessed post demo of new song: "Be the Night"

Posted by AP on 27/05/16

Potomac, MD’s re-united stoner rock veterans The Obsessed (who count, among others, the legendary Scott ‘Wino’ Weinrich among their ranks) have uploaded a demo of a new song dubbed ”Be the Night”, which you can hear below. The final studio recording of it will be featured on the trio’s upcoming album ”Sacred”, which they are set to begin recording this summer for their new label Relapse Records. Commenting on the new record and partnership, Wino offered:

The time is now for rebirth of The Obsessed. Fueled with the anger, wisdom and energy of all things past, this monumental achievement is the culmination of many years of dogged determination and the belief in the music. This music that we and many others find healing and inspirational. At last it sees the light, uncompromising and laden with passion and intensity that we’ll immortalize on our new album.

We’re happy to officially announce our signing with Relapse Records. They also believe in the music and are very understanding of our integrity, vision and aspirations. On tour right now in the USA, we are celebrating this experience with glorious sound. Join us on this golden road. Thanks to all who believe!
