Veteran L.A. based stoner rock band Bigelf will release its latest release this Spring. Into The Maelstrom will be available in stores and online Tuesday, April 1st via InsideOut Music. The band’s new album will be the first for Bigelf on InsideOut. It will also be the first record for drummer Mike Portnoy (Transatlantic, Winery Dogs, ex-Dream Theater) with the band.
Into The Maelstrom will be available in a double-disc digipak and on a double-disc gatefold vinyl release. The double-disc digipak will feature both the album and a handful of re-mixes and demos from the band. The gatefold vinyl will feature the entire album as presented on CD. The album’s track listing is as follows:
- Incredible Time Machine
- Already Gone
- Alien Frequency
- The Professor & The Madman
- Mr. Harry McQuhae
- Control Freak
- Edge of Oblivion
- Theater of Dreams
- ITM: I. Destination Unknown / II. Harbinger Of Death / III. Memories
Founding member Damon Fox explained in an interview what audiences can expect from the bands upcoming InsideOut debut. “I think ITM is the best Bigelf record yet,” he said. “And I believe it is a real game changer for the band. It’s gonna put us over the top! Psychedelic cinematic landscapes and melodic prog-doom set the stage for the new album, I cannot wait for fans (old and new) to experience all of its apocalyptic color.”
Bigelf will be part of this year’s Progressive Nation At Sea cruise. The cruise sets sail February 18th and returns to port February 22nd. It will also feature performances by Transatlantic–another band with whom Portnoy plays—Devin Townsend Project, Riverside & Adrian Belew Power Trio.
