Bong finally change the water, announce new album We are, we were and we will have been

There’s literally no second guessing Newcastle-on-Tyne’s eminent stoner unit. For starters, they’re friggin’ called Bong. Like, ‘nuff said. They also put out Stoner Rock last year, which is a tongue-in-cheek but nonetheless telling album title; basically, Bong summoned the dirge hard with 70+ minutes of single-chord battery until the water became too damn nasty to continue ripping. This shit had people damn near gasping for breath!

That surely sounds like THE logical conclusion to drone-doom, right? Clearly not, ‘cos come May 25, Bong shall return with a brand new LP by the name of We are, we were and we will have been, once again on Ritual Productions. This time around, it’s an altogether shorter session, with two 20-minute sides as opposed to the near-35-minute slabs we got on Stoner Rock. Still, expect more of the same sound-wise: walls of guitar drone and sauntering percussion, all performed at a kush-coma-inducing pace. Oh, and it’s got some killer artwork, but that’s kinda customary for doom-mongers. Don’t expect to see many reviews when this thing drops: it’s the sort of music that deliberately avoids critical dissection, instead inviting one to throw it on the turntable and proceed to drop the fuck out of life. Bong in hand, of course.
