Since their formation, Solar Temple Suicides have slowly been perfecting their own brand of drugged out, spacey haze. They preach long and tall effects-laiden, psychedelic lessons culled from unabashed cosmic rock tendencies and hallucinatory walls of sound.
While the obvious influences are all present and correct, Spacemen 3, The Velvet Underground and Hawkwind, the band are good enough and confident enough to plough their own furrow of psych goodness – try the seven minutes plus of the swirling, far out A Rough Road Leads To The Stars and hear for yourself.
Named after the infamous cult who tried to reach the stars by setting themselves on fire, Solar Temple Suicides’ debut full-length album, Sentinels of the Heliosphere, will be released December 14th on Sleepy Records, with an east coast tour to follow in early 2011.
