Observe Premiere: Max Boogie Overdrive – “Stoned Once more”

As a normal rule, we are inclined to keep away from bands that embrace “max,” “boogie” or “overdrive” of their names. It one way or the other evokes ’70s disco which doesn’t actually match with the entire excessive metallic vibe we’re going for. That stated, there aren’t any scarcity of nice bands with actually dangerous monikers (howdy, Weekend Nachos, Job For a Cowboy and Dew Scented), so who’re we to evaluate with out really listening to Max Boogie Overdrive’s new single, “Stoned Once more.” As you may think from the title, these L.A. heshers—Max Boogie (lead/rhythm guitar), Daren “Drop Dee” Ford (vocals/bass), Tom “Knuckles” Hernandez (drums), Richard Clark (rhythm/lead guitar)—have their clocks completely set at 4:20, and their new single fervently extols the virtues of such pursuits. Once more, no shock! The tune is true consistent with fellow SoCal tokemeisters Fu Manchu and Nebula, with loads of hazy Sabbath rifferama and a typically sludgy, laconic method.

“Stoned Once more” is the primary single from MBO’s upcoming full-length debut of the identical identify. It’s set for launch on CD and digitally through Future Primitive Recordings on March 29. Place your preorder right here.

Right here’s what the band needed to say in regards to the new monitor:

“‘Stoned Once more’ is impressed by the 1970’s Robert Crumb blacklight poster (technically entitled “Stoned Agin”), and the album artwork follows that inspiration as properly. It truly is about being younger, smoking pot and getting excessive with your mates, and that magic feeling you’ve whenever you’re younger and have only a few cares on the planet. We put numerous ‘reefer insanity’ soundbites on the finish, when the music goes right into a psychedelic freak out, simply to poke enjoyable at how hashish was considered previously as a ‘dangerous drug’ that children ought to steer clear of, in the meantime the ‘adults’ all had alcohol issues.”
