Orchid To Release New One April 26

The Mouths of Madness

Dude. This is probably the phattest news you’ll hear all day. Unless, of course, it happens and I can finally report on the epic suck-job Kate Upton bestowed upon my Johnson.

Yes, people — San Francisco-based doom rock dudes Orchid have a new album called The Mouths of Madness coming out April 26.

That gloriously salacious cover art is the work of singer and tattoo artist extraordinaire, Theo Mindell.

Comments Mindell: “I wanted the cover of the album to be really classic and strong, like one of the records from my childhood where when you’d see the colors and shapes on it from across the room, you’d immediately recognize it.”

You nailed it dude.

“But then I did a really elaborate painting for the inside that is totally ornate…I wanted people to open this kind of sparse, plain thing and be drawn into another world that kind of visually told the story of some of the emotions of the record. Kind of like peeling a weird fruit open…the inner painting was really inspired by some of the Latino psychedelic murals that were done around San Francisco in the late ’60s-early ’70s…like the cover of Abraxas by Santana, which is a record I grew up on and always loved. So, it’s the ‘Orchid version’ of those murals.”

Here now is a track from the new one, called “Wizard of War.”

Dig it.
