American Stoner Rock band Greenbeard unveil new music video for “Creatures Of The Night” taken from their upcoming full-length album “Variant” set to release on April 9, 2022 via Sailor Records (US) and Kozmik Artifactz (EU). Watch the video through the YouTube player below:
Greenbeard has made their mark on the Stoner/Desert Rock scene, boasting Heavy, heady sounds, and high-energy performances. The band blends early British Heavy Metal and Psychedelia influences with big Desert riffs and sedated Stoner grooves. “Variant” meanders promisingly into “desert soul” territory, with Bluesy interludes and heartstrung, crooning vocals. The serendipitously named album was subject to a long incubation period, due largely to Covid-related challenges, as well as lineup changes and industry-wide delays in vinyl production. Nevertheless, “Variant” emerges as a valiant tribute to new directions, creative experimentation, and engagement with the wider musical community.
“Creatures… is sort of the stoner rock palette cleanser on the album: a more straightforward rock and roll song with our signature edge,” notes drummer Buddy Hachar of the band’s latest single. “It’s a fun, ear-catching crowd-pleaser that the whole band really likes playing live.”
Singer and guitarist Chance Parker took a somewhat playful approach to the lyrics for this track: “I think we all feel like Frankenstein… to some degree,” he laughs.
“Variant” was recorded at Red Nova Ranch in Bastrop, Texas and features the standout cover art of long-time collaborator Antoine Defarges. The gatefold is adapted from an actual diorama made by friend of the band, Mount Dracula.
“Variant” will be released on CD, LP, and digitally with pre-orders to be announced in the coming days.
