Exclusive: Black Lodge Premiere New Self-Titled EP
Hollywood, California, industrial-rock band Black Lodge have released their self-titled debut EP today–it’s available now on iTunes–as well as officially announced their fall 2013 US tour itinerary with select Pop Evil support dates.
The six-song Black Lodge debut EP is the first half of the band’s full-length upcoming 13-song concept album, The Diary of Tomahawk, due out in 2014, which tells the story of an American witch named Tomahawk and her descent through a world of the occult, alchemy and ritualistic magick.
Black Lodge’s debut six-song EP was written and recorded at The Realm Creative in Los Angeles by Black Lodge with co-producers and co-songwriters Johnny Royal, Gavin Reign, Jeordie White/Twiggy Ramirez, Lee Miles, Zach Webb, Sean Beavan and Johnny K.
In celebration of the EP release, Black Lodge has launched a giveaway for a chance to win a Gibson Les Paul Epiphone signed by the band and Twiggy Ramirez, as well as an Orange Crush CR 120H–for entry details, click here. Black Lodge have also made the first three chapters of their upcoming graphic novel illustrated by Marvel Comics artist Wayne Robinson available for free download on their website.
“Growing up, I would fully immerse myself into the bands that I loved: Iron Maiden, The Misfits, Marilyn Manson, Morbid Angel, NIN,” says Black Lodge founder and lead guitarist, Johnny Royal. “When I started writing this record, I wanted to create the same experience for the listener that made me fall in love with music when I was a kid: memorable songs, great videos and cool artwork. We brought all of those elements into this record and have incorporated a great deal of alchemy and the occult in our songwriting process and story arch.”
