LP DROPS SEPTEMBER 15 THROUGH NEW DAMAGE RECORDS
In support of their forthcoming record, Biblical has just announced a slew of Canadian dates in November. The mini-tour will kick off with a hometown show in Toronto at The Baby G and will include shows in Hamilton, London, Guelph, Montreal and Kingston. Tickets for the tour are on sale now. Before heading on tour in November, Biblical will make an appearance at this year’s POP Montreal festival with a show on September 14th
at Turbohaus. For all confirmed details, please see below.
The City that Always Sleeps follows Biblical’s critically-praised 2014 debut Monsoon Season. The product of almost 2 years in the studio, the new album is a deep dive into sludgy psych rock that explores spaces, textures and tones beyond the outer limits.
Heavy, propulsive and totally hypnotic, The City that Always Sleeps is Biblical at its weapons-grade best, leveraging rhythm and dynamics to explosive effect. Smashing supersaturated guitar riffs, piled-high psych production and the ghostly croon of Sewell unite to create monstrous music that fires off svelte, snaking grooves and turbulent, gorgeous chaos. Molten music for modern times!

Since forming in 2010, Biblical have built a name for themselves with their electrifying instrumental execution and 70’s amp stack worship. In 2011, Biblical released a self-titled EP that delighted rock fans with a blast of tense garage metal, steeped in minor-key twang. Pop Matters called the release “a grand debut,” while stoner aficionados The Obelisk praised the band’s sound, noting “BIBLICAL‘s swagger is definitely their own.”
In 2014, the band unleashed their debut full-length Monsoon Season. Lauded by Pitchfork as a “climactic, Red Sea-parting surge of narcotic guitar,” the album earned critical acclaim from both metal and indie outlets alike. Metal Sucks pegged the album as “an early contender for year-end-list honors,” while KEXP Seattle praised the band as “apocalyptic rock and roll, worthy of the lasting canon.”
Known for their fierce, not-to-be-missed live show, Biblical have shared stages with the likes of Kyuss Lives, Red Fang, Fucked Up, The Sword, Torche, Wooden Shjips, Death From Above 1979, and many others.
