Raging Speedhorn announce Lost Ritual

Raging Speedhorn will release their latest album Lost Ritual in July.

The follow-up to Before The Sea Was Built will be widely released on July 15, while fans who donated towards the crowdfunding campaign will receive it a week in advance on July 8.

Guitarist Jim Palmer says: “This album seems like a true reflection of everyone’s input, a slice of all of us. It has those typical Speedhorn, pumping rock’n’roll moments, and some much darker ones too.

“Sound-wise, it’s got all the feedback, distortion, bad attitude and in-your-face antics you’d expect with a sound that should be more familiar to Speedhorn fans, but with a twist.”

The band teamed up with Monster Magnet earlier this month to release a split seven-inch single, featuring their track Half Way To Hell. Its launch coincides with their appearance at this year’s Metal Hammer-sponsored Desertfest in London.

Further album details will be released in due course.

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
