"A bone-crunching slab of murky distortion ..."

Originally I used the word stonegaze to describe a crowd response after one of our first shows. It was like they had all just spent 30 minutes staring at Medusa. Shortly after that I used it again to describe our sound and it stuck.Dallas, TX band True Widow are a collaboration between a woodworker, a screenprinter, and a makeup artist. They're Cormac McCarthy fans. Together, they make heavy, hypnotic, jam-based music that takes as much from slowcore and shoegaze as it does from stoner rock. Their new album Circumambulation is now streaming via Pitchfork.
Their first two albums, the S/T True Widow (2008) and considerably more verbose followup As High as the Highest Heavens and from the Center to the Circumference of the Earth (2011) are both available on Spotify. The album itself is slated for release on July 23.
