High on Fire announce FREE North American Tour

As if a new High on Fire album in the works wasn't news enough, the power sludge trio has also announced an upcoming tour with FREE tour dates courtesy of Converse Rubber Tracks! (Yes Converse the shoe company!) Converse Rubber Tracks is a community-based professional recording studio located in various cities where emerging musicians of all genres can apply for free studio time. If selected, artists can record in a professional setting at no cost while maintaining the rights to their own music!  The shows will coincide with Converse Rubber Tracks “pop-up” recording studios in each city.  This will be the first ever Converse Rubber Tracks Live Tour and will feature either Blackest or Arctic opening!

High on Fire have been busy recording a new album and have begun writing sessions in New Orleans, Los Angeles and Oakland this past spring.  Drummer Des Kensel has suggested that it'll sound something like "Sabbath's Master of Reality [played] backwards at 78 RPM."  Here's what head guru guitarist/vocalist/weedian Matt Pike had to say about the upcoming album:

"Des, Jeff [Matz, bass] and I are really getting creative and writing a hell of a new record...It's a crazy project and I can't really explain what it's all about just yet, but we've been writing a lot of crazy intense material that will up the ante, and bring things to another level."
