Houston riff rockers WARLUNG unveil the third single taken from their upcoming full-length ‘Optical Delusions’, out on October 9th on Heavy Psych Sounds.
The Texas four piece brilliantly meld NWOBHM influences, modern heavy and picturesque horror themes without ever sounding dramatic or pompous. Might they be the 2.0 offsprings of Ozzy Osbourne, Rush and Pink Floyd? Their sense of storytelling and invigorating riff rock driven by George Baba and Philip Bennett’s massive hooks and catchy vocals will definitely win over fans of Ghost, Uncle Acid, The Order Of Israfel. You’re a click away from ultimate metal satisfaction…
Join the cult with hook-driven new song “Order of the Temple“.
WARLUNG previously shared a video for the song “The Scorpion in the Sand”, found below:
Their new studio offering and third album ‘Optical Delusions’ will see the light on October 9th through Italian powerhouse Heavy Psych Sounds. The label is also set to reissue WARLUNG’s first two albums ‘Immortal Portal’ (preorder) and ‘Sleepwalker’ (preorder) on October 18th, 2020 on vinyl and CD.

WARLUNG took the heavy rock underground by storm in 2017 with the release of their debut album ‘Sleepwalker’. Playing festivals such as End Hip End It Fest and opening for acts like Wo Fat and Dead Meadow, they quickly gained a cult following and high praise by both fans and critics alike. Less than a year later, they entered the studio to record their second album, which was released in February 2019. ‘Immortal Portal’ hit #14 of the Doom Charts and was included to Weedian’s first artist compilation. WARLUNG continued to host various breweries and festivals alike SXSW, and quickly became a fan favorite within the local rock community and abroad. Their audience grew as they opened for bands such as High Reeper, Forming the Void or King Buffalo. Their upcoming, hotly anticipated album ‘Optical Delusions’ is slated for a release in October 2020, with a pre-sale to start on July 2nd with Heavy Psych Sounds.
