Keeping up a long-held tradition of bringing forth some of the heaviest music from the darkest depths of the Pacific North West of the USA, Seattle’s legendary Tad Doyle – formerly of TAD, and Hog Molly – is set to deliver his strongest songwriting and playing to date with his latest band, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth. The band features Doyle on guitar/vocals, veteran bassist Peggy Doyle and drummer Dave French (The Anunnaki).
Their self-titled debut full-length comes out on February 16th, 2015 via Neurot Recordings. Recorded at Robert Lang Studios and Tad Doyle’s own Witch Ape Studio in Seattle, Washington and was mixed by Billy Anderson (Yob, Sleep, High On Fire, Melvins et al), Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth consists of, with two bonus tracks on the CD edition and fuses the collective and extensive rock histories and experience of its three members in the worlds of punk, hard rock and metal. The threesome’s sound is highly anticipated, described as “splicing serrated riffs through chilling post-punk drumming and hulking compositions that blow soulfully hot and desolately cold”.
Elaborates Doyle of the band’s creation: “After almost fifteen years without putting out a record, much time was spent woodshedding, riffing and writing new material. Brothers of the Sonic Cloth was originally a recording-only project and creative outlet for me playing all instruments on early unreleased demos but I quickly realised that I wanted the music to be played live so I would have to enlist other like-minded players. Peggy was an obvious choice with her enthusiasm and energy that made her an asset right from the start of integrating the band with other musicians. Dave French was a guy we both related to on a musical and deep spiritual level. We had played shows together with our respective bands, Peggy and I in Brothers of the Sonic Cloth and Dave who played bass in his band The Anunnaki. Dave completed the circle when he offered to play drums and his joining was this last piece that solidified the band. We are very honored and excited to have this release on Neurot Recordings whom with their legacy goes a fierce integrity that we are proud to be a part of.”
