“They’ve got a heap of that early-70s heavy blues groove going on, following heroes Sabbath, Floyd and Purple but cut-through with their own post-millennial personality.”
CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE
“Bright Curse hit all the right buttons, and they might be the face of a new generation.”
“An uplifting blast of gutsy, 70s-inspired stoner rock played with passion and high energy that puts the power back into the classic power-trio formula.”
Formed in London in 2012 out of the expatriated ashes of French psychedelic rock band Soul Manifest, heavy psych trio Bright Curse is a band that requires no introduction for anyone that has kept a close ear to the underground in recent years.
Following the release of their self-titled EP in 2013, their debut album Before the Shore (2016) not only showcased the band’s remarkable song writing talents, it proved itself be a hard rock sleeper hit you simply couldn’t ignore. Well known for riffing epic spectrums of dark/light through extended jams and out-and-out doom, the band established themselves on the road, hitting festival stages at Hellfest, DesertFest Berlin and Keep it Low, and touring across Europe with fellow Londoner doom merchants, Elephant Tree.
With the dissolution of their former label, HeviSike Records, last year, the band has since teamed up with chief purveyors of riff-driven heaviness, US label Ripple Music, to ready the release of new album, Time of the Healer, this May.
“Working with Ripple is just gonna be rad. Having a label that really cares for its bands, that motivation will make the difference,” explains frontman/guitarist Romain Daut.
Of the upcoming album, he adds, “It’s a come-back to a doomier version of Bright Curse, more like the first EP. The songs are a bit longer and more developed, each relates a story, and all of them work together to create some kind of tale. I didn’t want to just have another heavy album, so we added some exotic instruments and I think it serves the story really well.”
Time of the Healer by Bright Curse is officially released on 10th May 2019 on Ripple Music and can be pre-ordered at www.ripple-music.com.
