Formed in 2015, All Souls are a Los Angeles-based band comprising four veterans of the West Coast's enduring stoner-rock scene – Totoimoshi's Meg Castellanos and Tony Aguilar, coupled with the Desert Sessions' Tony Tolmay and Black Elk's Erik Trammel, to be more specific. After spending the past two years playing shows with heavy hitters like Red Fang, the Sword, Kvelertak and Torche, the quartet is finally gearing up to drop its self-titled debut full-length next month via Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin's Sunyata Records.
With the album's arrival less than a month out, All Souls have teamed up with Revolver to premiere "Sadist/Servant," an epic, psych-tinged scorcher featuring Tool drummer Danny Carey. If you've ever dreamed of a Queens of the Stone Age/Rush crossover, you're in luck.
All Souls hits shelves, both real and virtual, February 9th. You can pre-order it here.
