Oslo-based psych-stoner band Saint Karloff is back to trip you up with their new single "Psychedelic Man." The single is from the band's forthcoming record Paleolithic War Crimes, due out June 2. The new record is Saint Karloff's first since the passing of bassist Ole Sletner in 2021.
"'Psychedelic Man' was among the first songs we began working on following the release of our previous record," said the band. "We're excited to unveil the first track from our new album – a hard hitting stoner rock tune we hope will get your head banging."
Pre-orders for Paleolithic War Crimes will begin on March 10 via Majestic Mountain Records for all formats minus cassettes, which will be handled by Evil Noise Recordings. On the new record, Saint Karloff offered the following:
"We are happy to announce that we have once again signed with the finest label, MMR for the release of our third album.
"Surely, Paleolithic War Crimes was created during strange and challenging times. The whole writing process started back in 2019 with Ole still onboard. Naturally Ole's passing was and still is devestating, but after some time the two of us found the motivation and desire to continue and finish what we had started.
"In many ways the album reflects a band in transition exploring new paths, but at the same time it definitely has the proper heavy Karloff-vibe. We are also very pleased with having Ole's brother Eivind Sletner on board both writing lyrics and designing the album arts. Jointhugger's multiinstrumentalist Nico Munkvold will step in and handle the late Ole's bass duties on live shows.
"We are very happy with the results, and can't wait for people to hear it."
