Walrus Detail New LP and Release New Video

Walrus Share New Video for "The Joy of Painting With Walrus"

Halifax’s Walrus will release its debut LP, Family Hangover, on June 9th via Dan Mangan’s Madic Records. Described as a band that “could be thrown on a bill between Love and Sabbath,” their first full-length release features a soulful, fuzzed-out mix of swirling vocals, wailing guitar riffs, and Spacemen 3-style drone, all with a laid-back, ’60s-infused vibe.

The band offered a first taste of the album with the jangly lead single “Regular Face,” and today they share a Bob Ross-inspired video for the track (the video is appropriately titled ‘The Joy of Painting with Walrus.’). Walrus has a handful of Canadian & US dates coming up this Spring, including performances at CMW & Field Trip Festival and a string of dates with Preoccupations.
