LEATHER LUNG release first video single and details of new album

Boston, Massachusetts quintet LEATHER LUNG unveil the first video single ‚Spit in the Casket‘, the opening track of their forthcoming new album „Graveside Grin“. The sludge metal band’s first proper full-length is chalked up for release on March 15, 2024: Leather Lung – Spit in the Casket [Official Music Video] – YouTube

LEATHER LUNG comment on the single: „The opening track ‚Spit in the Casket‘ is a middle finger in song form“, singer Mike announces. „It was written in the catharsis of leaving a toxic relationship. This song is dedicated to anyone that has ever disrespected you and lets them know that it won’t happen again. We play this track like we are kicking down your door with it. For that reason, we have chosen ‚Spit in the Casket‘ as the first single and opening track off our new record ‚Graveside Grin‘. This also happens to be our first full length release and first effort as a 5-piece band. It’s our beastly new form and we’re showing teeth. So better stay on our good side and blast the newest single as loud as it goes!“

Let’s get this party started! The incorrigible headbangers in LEATHER LUNG have heard the pleas of their enthusiastic following to bring forth a new album of substance-fueled boogie metal, and have obliged at last with the raucous new full-length „Graveyard Grin“. The proper debut album from the New England five-piece has everything promised by their previous EP releases: a thick, chugging concoction of stoner metal, doom, and unrelenting sludge, blended into a refreshingly heavy brew with a catchy kick.

LEATHER LUNG are a wild bunch that know the meaning of fun. This is hardly surprising as the band sprang into existence out of friendship and the punk and hardcore scene of Boston in 2012. Starting as a four-piece, they quickly gained an excellent reputation in their local scene, as well as plenty of critical attention through a string of EPs, starting with „Reap What You Sow“ (2014) and followed in regular intervals by „Lost in Temptation“ (2016), „Lonesome, On’ry and Evil“ (2019), and „Dive Bar Devil“ (2022).

‚Dive Bar Devil‘ is also the name of LEATHER LUNG’s own brand of lager beer, which has already sold out and been re-brewed multiple times. One may speculate that this is the liquid coming out off the can that the band’s Green Lady mascot of each of their record covers opens forcefully in the artwork of „Graveside Grin“.

Now a five-piece with the addition of a second guitarist, LEATHER LUNG are ready to take on the world. Following crushing live appearances at DesertFest New York and Psycho Las Vegas, the band return with „Graveside Grin“, a massive sign that these freaks from Boston are ready for the road and amped to get the global party going.
