Clouds Announce "We Are Above You" out June 17th on Hydra Head * US Dates w/ Boris and Torche!

Announce New Album We Are Above You out June 17th on Hydra Head * US Dates w/ Torche & Boris!

A dangerous sounding and nostalgic record. - Scene Point Blank

An adventure in hard rock. - Alarm Press

These dudes can seriously shred. -

And they said it couldn’t be done. Then again, “they” say a lot of things, don’t they? And in this case, when they implied, insinuated or outright insisted that Boston rock freewheelers Clouds couldn’t possibly get any more awesome, they—in the sadly timeless words of our soon-to-be ex-president—severely misunderestimated our immensely talented and totally gregarious homeboys. And so it follows that Clouds have followed up last year’s Legendary Demo with an even bigger, better, and more brilliant slab of Hott Rock Action.

Featuring Adam McGrath, who brings his impeccable musical pedigree (see: fellow Hydra Head all-stars Cave In), alongside Q, Jimmy, and Johnny, the quartet we call Clouds deliver all the anthemic choruses, white-hot licks and psychedelic grandeur that anyone could ever possibly hope to cram into a single album made by mere mortals. Not that we’re bragging or anything.
