The Ditch And The Delta Posts New Song “Sleeping Dogs”

With the release of Salt Lake City-based trio The Ditch And The Delta’s debut LP “Hives In Decline” set for release through Battleground Records next week, today new track “Sleeping Dogs” is offered for public consumption.

Engineered by Andy Patterson of Subrosa, “Hives In Decline” shows The Ditch And The Delta exploring further aspects of sound design within a unique take on doom/sludge metal. Employing different tunings, and modal centers, every song the band writes manages to avoid many of the usual doom trappings of excessive feedback, static harmony, and exploratory riffs.

“Hives In Decline” also features a swarm of solos by Gentry Densley (Eagle Twin, Iceburn) on the song “Fuck On Asphalt.” The lyrical content deals with everyday life and the constant suppression and alienation that comes with it. Three men from Mormon-dominated Utah are bound to have a lot of resentment and disdain for the mono culture they exist in daily.

The Ditch And The Delta is actively booking new tour dates in support of the album, including a hometown record release show on May 12th. That is followed by a run of West Coast shows in Sacramento, Eugene, Seattle, Portland, and Boise from May 16th through 20th, supporting Pinkish Black in Portland. A hometown show with Graves At Sea closes May.

Wrvth Posts “Forlorn” In-Studio Video

Atmospheric tech death unit Wrvth today issues part two of a live, in-studio video series with “Forlorn,” which comes by way of the band’s self-titled full-length, issued last year by Unique Leader Records.

The black and white performance clip was captured at Fang Studios with Nick Loiacono of FLYTRAPtv. “We feel the songs on our record are best represented in a live context,” said the band in a collective statement. “‘Forlorn’ is especially one of those songs that a raw production lends to the song accordingly, lyrically, and musically.”

Wrvth is currently in the midst of a headlining tour that commenced on August 5th in Bend, Oregon. The journey includes an appearance at Jamfest in Beamsville, Ontario and will run through September 3rd in Sacramento, California.
