Texas stoner rock newcomers HIGH DESERT QUEEN present their catchy and stomp-inducing third single “Did She” with an exclusive in-studio video performance! Their debut album ‘Secrets of the Black Moon’ will be available on October 15h through Ripple Music.
Inspired by personal growth, nature and the search for peace of mind, HIGH DESERT QUEEN‘s debut album ‘Secrets of the Black Moon’ finds the perfect balance between earth-rumbling grooves, irresistible sun-drenched riffage, and the emotional power of frontman and guitarist Ryan Garney’s vocals. From the galloping anthem “The Mountain vs The Quake” to the dark soaring escape of “Skyscraper”, this 8-track journey awakens the sense and makes the listener reach the tipping point between aural gravity and levitation.
⚡️ Groove along HIGH DESERT QUEEN’s new single “Did She” ⚡️
Following their rowdy and fist-pumping debut single “The Mountain vs The Quake” (watch video) and their latest blues-infused and spacey doom statement “Heads Will Roll”, third single “Did She” is an uplifting and stomp-inducing stoner rock anthem filled with skyrocketing guitar solos and singalong-ready choruses.
The relentless foursome was signed by Ozzy Osbourne bassist Blasko to Ripple Music as part as his collaboration with the label. Initially set for a June release under the title ‘Bury The Queen’, ‘Secrets of the Black Moon’ will be officially released on October 15th, 2021. The album was recorded by Jeff Henson (Duel), and mixed and mastered by Swedish producer Karl Daniel Lidén (Lowrider, Crippled Black Phoenix, Greenleaf) at Studio Gröndahl in Stockholm.
HIGH DESERT QUEEN “Secrets of the Black Moon”
Out October 15th on Ripple Music
(colored/black vinyl, CD and digital)
Formed in 2019 to an eclectic backdrop of influences, the foursome’s
sole aim was to make the kind of music they could file away on their own record shelves, among the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Elder, Lowrider, Alice in Chains, Tom Waits and The Allman Brothers. Providing high octane shows that never deliver the same experience twice, HIGH DESERT QUEEN
were well on their way to establishing themselves as one of the hardest working rock bands on the Austin music scene.
Relocating from Houston in 2020 to accommodate the talents of bassist Matt Metzger and drummer Phil Hook, singer Ryan Garney and guitarist Rusty Miller of HIGH DESERT QUEEN quickly found themselves in the enviable position of having twelve songs ready to commit to tape. With such an impressive display of sincerity and sonic maturity, they caught the eye and ear of Ozzy Osbourne bassist Blasko, who signed the band to Ripple Music as part of his collaboration with the Californian label. ‘Secrets of the Black Moon’ will see an October 15th, 2021 release on limited and black vinyl, CD and digital.
