HIGH ON FIRE have begun work on their new, as-yet-untitled studio album. The group has convened for strategic writing sessions in both New Orleans, LA and Oakland, CA, with early reports indicating the band's new material to be both "epic" and "sonically huge". A 2015 tentative release date via eOne Music is expected for the new LP, the follow-up to 2012's De Vermis Mysteriis. "Everyone is asking what the new HIGH ON FIRE music sounds like," says Des Kensel. "Chew on some mescaline and listen to side B of SABBATH's Master Of Reality backwards at 78 RPM and it might give you an idea."
