|Los Angeles-based ritualistic psych-doom trio HIGH PRIESTESS unveil all details about their upcoming sophomore album ‘Casting The Circle’ on Ripple Music. Stream its mesmerizing title track now via New Noise Magazine.
“After playing these songs live for many months, we are pleased to have captured them in their definitive recorded versions for the whole world. We honor gods and goddesses, ancestors and spirits from the past, present and future and sing songs of misfortune. The title song Casting the Circle was written as an opener for shows to bring good energy into the room, we hope you love it as much as we do.” says guitarist and vocalist Katie Gilchrest.
Their 2018 eponymous debut on Ripple Music quickly turned heads in the heavy music underground, leading to tours in the US and Europe. Their sophomore full-length “Casting the Circle,” releasing in April 2020, seasons the psych-doom cauldron with keyboards, tribal percussion, signature harmonies and grandiose prog rock arrangements, all while pushing the boundaries of just how “heavy” heavy music can be. ‘Casting The Circle’ will be available on April 10th through Ripple Music. The artwork was designed by Jill Colbert at Manfish Inc.

HIGH PRIESTESS is a psychedelic doom trio from Los Angeles convoking crushing riffs drenched with lush harmonies and hypnotic eastern themes. Formed in 2016 by Mariana Fiel on bass and vocals, she recruited Katie Gilchrest on guitar and vocals and Megan Mullins on drums through an online ad. Since then, they have created a sound that echoes both past and future incarnations of doom and psychedelia. Tours, both domestic and abroad, will find HIGH PRIESTESS embarking on their mission to spread the wicked gospel of thick, mossy fuzz and rhapsodic melody. Basically, wherever this band can go, they will go. Prepare to worship at their altar.
