It’s been a long time—sixteen years, in fact—since Midwest stoner institution Bongzilla released new music but the dry spell ends today. The Wisconsinites are slated to release Weedsconsin on April 20 (when else?) and they’ve teamed up with Decibel to premiere first single “Sundae Driver.”
Featuring a three-piece lineup of all original members—bassist/vocalist Muleboy, guitarist Spanky and drummer Magma—”Sundae Driver” delivers the kind of hazy, heavy-as-hell doom that the band earned their reputation peddling. The riffs on “Sundae Driver” are low and slow, sounding like they originate in a smoke-filled room; paired with an flattening rhythm section, the instruments create the ideal backdrop for Muleboy’s throat-shredding, smoke-destroyed vocals.
One thing that hasn’t changed: Bongzilla’s main source of inspiration.
“Have you heard?” Muleboy asks. “Everyone is talking about that herb. ‘Sundae Driver’! The weed you need!”
