160823_King Woman Location6058

Over the course of the last seven years, Bay Area’s King Woman have crafted a sound thoroughly their own – a sound that harnesses the elastic textures and temporality of drone and metallic shoegaze alongside the transcendental, melancholic power of doom. Their forthcoming and debut full-length album, Created in the Image of Suffering, follows-up on 2014’s Doubt EP and is currently streaming in advance of its official release on February 24th via Relapse Records.

Created in the Image of Suffering was recorded with engineer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Wreck & Reference, Oathbreaker) at the Atomic Garden in Palo Alto, CA. Each song “evokes rich, gloomy imagery with crumbling washes of blurred, billowing distortion densely layered atop hazy, psychedelic atmospheres that call to mind a surrealistic Black Sabbath fronted by Mazzy Star. Complete with deeply personal, introspective lyrics that serve as a catharsis for years of religious and mental torment, King Woman truly suffer to create their art.”

King Woman will tour throughout 2017 in support of Created in the Image of Suffering – dates listed below in North America and Europe.
