Heavy blues/grunge trio Smoke Stack Rhino play Transit Bar with Muddy Wolfe and Local Horror!

Newly-established independent label Rainhound Records is proud to announce the release of the new track from grunge-blues trio Smoke Stack Rhino.

'Doom Boogie' is an ominous, heaving blues that sees the band debut as a three-piece and get heavy in both subject and sound. The band are taking the single around Australia with a 10-date tour throughout August and September.

Conceived during a recent session at Head Gap Studios for two other songs, 'Doom Boogie' came about by chance after singer-guitarist Ash King was noodling on his Resonator guitar and accidentally stumbled upon the song’s portentous riff, provoking producer Finn Keane to exclaim "…that sounds like a doom boogie!"

The conceptual seed sown, the song came together quickly with drummer Jeremy Berg providing psychedelic inflections around the toms and bass-player Shane Andison giving the low B string a work-out.

The brooding imagery and swirling harmonica harken to the moodiness of Howlin' Wolf, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Black Sabbath, while the intensity of the delivery shows Smoke Stack Rhino have dialled in to the frequency of contemporary Australian acts like King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets.

According to King, who, as part of the restructure of the band became the group's full-time vocalist, "Doom Boogie is a reflection of our inability to move forward to a sustainable future, but we’ve put the theme against a boogie rhythm so you can dance absurdly to celebrate our own imminent destruction!"

"War, death, famine, disease: we have reached the point of no return for Mother Earth," the band warns.

Doom Boogie is out on Friday 16th August via Rainhound Records.

As part of the tour, CO2 emissions will be offset through planting of native trees within the band's local area.
