Video premiere: Woodhawk – ‘The High Priest’ + ‘Beyond the Sun’ album title reveal

Friday 03rd, February 2017 / 09:27
By Christine Leonard

CALGARY — Alighting for the first time on BeatRoute’s windowsill, the freshest cut from Woodhawk’s forthcoming album – the exultantly named Beyond the Sun – delivers an adrenaline rush and a foreboding prognostication in one fell swoop. A toothsome package, the lead single “The High Priest” executes Woodhawk’s hard rock rituals with a precision that belies the band’s unjaded enthusiasm.

“’The High Priest’ was one of the first songs we wrote for the record and it was also the first one we laid down when we got to the studio,” says lead singer/guitarist Turner Midzain. “It’s a straight-ahead riff ripper and just an all-around high energy tune.”

Woodhawk release Beyond the Sun on April 7th. They play Edmonton that night at the Sewing Machine Factory with The Mothercraft and Iron Eyes. The Calgary release party is on April 8 at the Palomino Smokehouse & Bar with Chron Goblin and The Mothercraft.

Accompanied by a beer-cooled video, that collages together shots of Woodhawk’s live performances into one epic landslide of concert footage, the teaser track provides a glimpse of what the spellbinding trio’s forthcoming LP has in store. Scheduled for release on April 7th, the eight-song package was captured at Rain City Records in Vancouver by Midzain, alongside stone cutting bassist/vocalist Mike Badmington and intrepid drummer Kevin Nelson. You’ll even hear organ and synth segments by engineer, producer, and mixer extraordinaire Jesse Gander.

“The song’s lyrics take from the idea of putting someone in power, who really shouldn’t be there, and they take advantage of their situation. It was written on the tail end of our EP in early 2015. So, it captures the essence of what Woodhawk was, and now is.”

Woodhawk’s Beyond the Sun will be released on April 7th. Stand by for a full article in the April issue of the magazine.
