Philadelphia’s heavy psych quartet ECSTATIC VISION has shared a full stream of their 2nd LP Raw Rock Fury before release this Friday via Relapse. Hear the album courtesy of Noisey who called the band “Philadelphia’s trippiest rock n’ roll madmen” and their live show “a full-fledged psychedelic jam freakout”. Listen now at this location.
Additionally, ECSTATIC VISION will perform two exclusive concerts with Eyehategod on April 15 and 16. The band then heads to Europe at the end of the month on April 21 till May 20. All confirmed tour dates below.
April 7th, 2017 will see the worldwide release of Raw Rock Fury via Relapse Records on CD/LP/Digital. Physical pre-order and bundles are available via Relapse.com HERE and digital downloads can be pre-ordered by Bandcamp AT THIS LOCATION.
Raw Rock Fury exhibits the band locking in on primordial, troglodyte Detroit rock grooves, krautian motorik sounds that recall the obscure one-time collaboration between NEU and the MC5, grimy harmonica flourishes that evoke Beefheart at his most savage, and the Hawkwindian, primal world heavy psych their debut expertly showcased. All of this is captured on four songs and 35+ minutes of the dirtiest sounding recordings since Kick Out The Jams. Do you miss the days when rock recordings were dangerous? If so, you must crave Raw Rock Fury.

Info / Bio:
ECSTATIC VISION introduced their brand of heavy primal psych influenced by groups like Hawkwind, Aphrodites Child, Olatunji, Can and early Amon Duul ll in late 2013. Formed in Philadelphia to primarily “play what they wanted to hear,” the band quickly rose to those in the know as a force to be reckoned with. ECSTATIC VISION signed to Relapse Records on the power of a demo and their psychedelic freak out, primal live concerts. Their debut LP, Sonic Praise saw a release by Relapse in June 2015 and during this time the band toured the US with prestigious acts such as Enslaved, YOB and Uncle Acid & The Dead Beats in addition to numerous shows with the likes of Earthless, Red Fang, Acid King and many others. This was followed by a European run that saw them perform at the legendary Roadburn Festival in addition to dates with Bang, Pentagram, and more.
Now in 2017, ECSTATIC VISION return with their 2nd LP Raw Rock Fury, an even more tripped out showcasing of the band’s raucous mix of troglodyte Detroit rock grooves, soothing Krautian motoric sounds, filthy Beefheartian blues and Hawkwindian primal world heavy psych! The addition of multi-instrumentalist Kevin Nickles (Saxophone/Flute/Guitar) has helped the band reach beyond the void and further create a sense of auditory hallucination with Raw Rock Fury. Prepare for one of the dirtiest sounding recordings since MC5’s Kick Out the Jams. Do you miss the days when rock recordings were dangerous? If so, you must crave Raw Rock Fury.
