Released in the spring of 2023 as part of Blues Funeral Recordings’ PostWax series, ACID KING‘s new album “Beyond Vision” sees the band venturing into epic sci-fi-inspired territory, the result of a collaboration between Acid King founder, guitarist and vocalist**Lori S., guitarist Jason Landrian (Black Cobra), bassist and keyboardist Bryce Shelton (Hawkwind) and drummer Jason Willer (Charger, Jello Biafra). Breaking a new record in the international heavy scene by reaching #96 on the Billboard Top Albums chart, the anticipated followup to 2015’s “Middle of Nowhere, Center of Everywhere” has garnered unanimous press from critics and fans alike, bringing ACID KING to the doom and heavy metal scene’s forefront with their thundering, swinging and trip-inducing heavy psychedelia.

Following their extensive summer European tour and shows in South America, the mighty trio is now set to come full circle with a string of West Coast shows as well as an appearance at Chicago’s Heavy Chicago Festival this fall.¬†

Adopting the nickname of notorious teenage slayer Ricky Kasso,¬†Acid King¬† came screaming out of San Francisco in 1993 with a sound that fused Heavy ‚Äô70s proto-Metal with the kind of bleary, slow-rolling dirge power being harnessed by their contemporaries in Sleep and Electric Wizard. The band‚Äôs 1993 debut 10‚ÄĚ was followed two years later by their full-length debut¬†“Zoroaster”¬†(Sympathy For The Record Industry), which set the stage for a trio of crucial releases on Frank Kozik‚Äôs famed Man‚Äôs Ruin label.¬† Acid King‚Äôs acclaimed 1999 album¬†“Busse Woods”¬†solidified their reputation amongst a generation of riff worshipers, weed heads and Heavy Rock enthusiasts. Two decades of hard touring and sporadic recording ensued.

After parting ways with the musicians who played with her on 2015‚Äôs¬†“Middle Of Nowhere, Center of Everywhere,”¬†Lori formed a touring lineup for the Busse Woods 20th¬†Anniversary tour in 2019.¬†At its conclusion, Lori wasted no time pondering her next move.¬†She had been plotting a possible collaboration with Black Cobra guitarist/vocalist Jason Landrian, and the sweeping lockdowns that attended the great plague of 2020-2022 provided the opportunity.¬†

The result is¬†“Beyond Vision,”¬†and it‚Äôs unlike anything¬†Acid King¬†has done before. The 7-song, 43-plus-minute collection launches a new era for the band who built the template for thundering, swinging, trip-inducing Heavy.¬†One might even call it a concept album, contemplating interplanetary migration and the winding path of existence. It was recorded to two-inch tape courtesy of Dead & Company at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, California, engineered and mixed by Billy Anderson¬†and mastered by Zach Weeks.¬†Illustrations were created by¬†Marteen Donders, with artwork and layout by Peder Bergstrand.¬†Watch latest¬†videos for¬†‚ÄúDestination Psych/Beyond Vision‚ÄĚ and “Mind’s Eye
