Sons Of Hippies Griffons At The Gates Of Heaven on LP
High in the mountains of Tennessee, Sons Of Hippies was conceived amid fellow music lovers at a festival on a 700-acre farm on a sunny June afternoon; their name originated when Brazilian native Jonas Canales and Florida-bred Katherine Kelly probed familial bonds to discover they were, indeed, children of hippies.
The duo's dreamily melodic but complexly synthesized music required the mentorship of Pro-Pain guitarist Tom Klimchuck who produced and played bass on the band's March '09 debut, Warriors of the Light, which received the Critics Choice award from Tampa's popular Creative Loafing publication for "Best Modern-Sounding Record" of 2009. The band's sophomore album A-Morph was then released in 2010 followed by the 5-song concept album Fade To White in the summer of 2011.
Bassist David Daly joined S.O.H. in 2011 and in Decemeber of 2012 the group signed with Cleopatra Records who will issue their national debut Griffons At The Gates Of Heaven. The album features 12 all new recordings which showcase the passionate vocals of Katherine Kelly, the penetrating grooves of drummer Jonas Canales and bassist David Daley plus pulsating, psychedelic atmospherics that will appeal to fans of space rock bands from Hawkwind to Flaming Lips!
Griffons At The Gates Of Heaven was mixed by Jack Endino (Nirvana, L7, Mudhoney) and mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Andy Walter (Radiohead, David Bowie, U2).
