Birmingham’s hard rock pillars Alunah announce the release of their new album “Strange Machine“, due out April 15th and available to preorder now on Heavy Psych Sounds Records. Listen to the title track exclusively on The Heavy Chronicles!
Alunah’s frontwoman Sian Greenaway about the song: “Our title track is full of groove, blues, psychedelia, ferocity and we are so excited for our fans to have a taste of this cosmic cocktail. This single encapsulates the experimentation and growth the band has seen over the past 2 years. We may have been lockdown due to the pandemic but we’ve allowed our musicality to be well and truly free. The wait is finally over, so come and take a ride with us on the Strange Machine.“
“Strange Machine” is not just the title of the new Alunah album but a summary of surviving the last two years. Written and rehearsed during the pandemic whilst overcoming numerous personal struggles, “Strange Machine” shows Alunah in their most diverse yet focused light.
Hailing from Sabbath City, Alunah continues to tread their own path in 2022. Their latest album “Violet Hour” marked a new beginning with a drastic change of lineup, and opened up a world of doom-infused hard rock with little regard for outside trends.
Returning to Foel Studio in October ’21 for the follow-up to their Heavy Psych Sounds debut with producer Chris Fielding, the nine tracks span the epic majesty of “The Earth Spins” featuring guest guitars from Shane Wesley (Crowbar) to the groove of “Dead Woman Walking”. From the West Coast psychedelia of “Psychedelic Expressway” to the swagger of the title track, this is the sound of Alunah cutting loose and free. Welcome to the “Strange Machine”.
