Calgary’ AB’s masters of straight ahead riff-rock wizardry Woodhawk will be hitting the road this month across four provinces (BC/AB/SK/MB) in support of their full length album ‘Beyond The Sun’ released this past April. The album was produced by the band with Jesse Gander (Bison, Japandroids) to follow their 2014 debut EP. Made of equal parts 1970’s Birmingham and a myriad of 21st century heavy who’s who, Woodhawk are purveyors of riff-centric rock and roll.
Capable and original, the band is able to craft anthemic fist-pumping songs while forgoing tired stoner rock clichés. With time travel tested themes of science fiction, swords and sorcery, the band’s lyrics are born from snowy winters, hot practice spaces and pages of dog-eared paperbacks. While the musicianship reinforces recollections of Black Sabbath, modern influences that have helped you smash air drums or highway speed limits are undeniably present.
‘Beyond The Sun’ album stream available on Bandcamp.
The album is available on digital, vinyl and CD.
