Patrick Brink comments: “Get ready for another taste of Volume. Habit, the second single off Requesting Permission To Land comes out August 16th on all platforms! Its Raw, heavy, in your face bad acid blues! Remastered by Jack Endino (Nirvana, Mudhoney, Soundgarden).”
Formed in 1993, Volume are back following a hiatus to finish what they started and celebrate a career milestone. The 20th Anniversary edition vinyl pressing of “Requesting Permission To Land” will be released on October 27, 2023.
“I’m super stoked that Requesting Permission To Land will finally be out on vinyl like it was always supposed to be. Get ready to get cosmically freaked out!” – Patrick Brink
From the riff-fueled percussive-frenzy sound of the EP’s opener “Habit” to the rhythmic and Progressive conclusion “Headswim,” “Requesting Permission To Land” is a thrilling collection of Heavy Acid Rock tracks. The EP features a number of talented musicians with drums recorded by Scott Reeder (Fu Manchu), and bass played by James Scoggins (Final Conflict). If you like straight up Fuzzed out Psychedelic Rock, sit back and let Volume spin your head!
Patrick Brink began Volume back in 1993 with the desire to have a project with which he could take the lead and steer the musical reins down Psychedelic Rocking routes. Having performed with a number of acts including doing vocals for Fu Manchu in their early days, Volume offered Patrick a new creative outlet. Over their career the band has shared stages with Queens Of The Stone Age, Fu Manchu, Mastadon and Goatsnake, and performed at festivals including Emmisions of the Monolith and Stoner Hands of Doom (SHoD). Volume draw musical influences from bands such as The Stooges, MC5 and Black Flag to name a few, while also crafting their own distinctive Heavy Psychedelic identity.
