[News] Hammada signs to Stonefly Records for a Vinyl release of their album “Atmos” on May 2022

StoneFly Records is stoked to announce the signing of Freiberg, Germany Psychedelic Desert Rockers Hammada and look forward to releasing their first album “Atmos” on 2 x 180g vinyl. This album will be the 5th album released by StoneFly Records.

I recall back in 2020 that “Atmos” made a strong impression on me; you know that’s the kind of album you need to own on wax… But the album was only available digitally… So, when Hammada reached me, I didn’t think about it for too long, I knew this album deserved a vinyl release and I accepted quickly to help them do it.

Atmos” is the debut album by German Psychedelic Desert Rock band Hammada. The basic tracks have been recorded live in October 2018 at Barren Rock Studios in Freiberg, Saxony. Guitar Overdubs, Solos, Organ, Synth and Vocals have been recorded between November 2018 and September 2019 at Barren Rock Studio and with The Eden Project in Freiberg. Mixed by Lukas Jonscher at The Eden Project Studios in Dresden. Mastered by Yeti Cave Sounds in Leipzig.

Hammada’s “Atmos” released digitally on June 26, 2020.
Vinyl officially releases on May 6, 2022.
Vinyl sales will go live on April 29, 2022.

Band Biography:

The project Hammada was brought to life in 2012 by guitarist Christian Döring. Together with drummer Sönke Tautorus, who joined at the end of the same year, work began on own songs. In 2013 singer and organist Kristian Schulze and bassist Lenz Fiedler completed the quartet. In this line-up Hammada is active until today.

After releasing two EPs “Sfaira” and “Monument” (both 2017), the band released their debut album “Atmos” digitally in 2020. The sound of “Atmos” is characterized by the alternation between Fuzzy and Psychedelic guitars, a deep bass and driving drums. In addition, there is a powerful, but for the genre rather unconventional voice, as well as the use of organ and synthesizer. The following year Hammada signed with the Canadian label StoneFly Records to release “Atmos” on vinyl.
