Since their sudden appearance on the scene with the self-titled debut album in 2020, Norwegian desert rock upstarters SLOMOSA have hit the ground running with frenetically-acclaimed festival appearances and relentless tours with more than 130 shows in twenty countries alongside bands such as Orange Goblin, Elder, Sasquatch or Stöner. This May, they will headline the first ever edition of Desertfest Oslo, and will play many more headlining tour dates. Find all upcoming SLOMOSA live shows listed below!

Now, following their signing with Stickman Records and the previously-released, popular video single, "Cabin Fever", the four-piece is premiering their brand new song "Rice"! Taken off the band's upcoming, sophomore full-length, which they recently recorded at Polyfon Studio in their hometown of Bergen, SLOMOSA continue where they left off after "Cabin Fever": One killer riff after the other with a heaviness and explosive choruses that draw lines back to 90s rock waves! SLOMOSA guitarist and singer Ben Berdous comments about the track:

“Together with long-time producer Eirik Marinius, we turned Rice into a grungy spin-off of some classic desert rock influences of ours. It's an up-beat song with a different vocal approach than our previous up-beat songs, blended with riffs after riffs, becoming our tundra rock machinery. We find it to be a breath of fresh air and we’re glad to be playing on more strings as our songwriting continues to develop and mature. Rice is a song of divide and broken friendships, written as the ultimate sigh when push comes to shove.”

SLOMOSA's forthcoming studio album is slated for a 2024-release on Stickman Records. To shorten your wait, their new single "Rice", that just premiered with Invisible Oranges, is out now and available on all digital services at:

Some may call it Stonerpop, others Grunge. No matter how you will label the genre, "Rice" is another perfect sample that showcases the flair and quality of the Bergen-based band, who took European stoner rock scene by storm with their energetic and wild live shows.

SLOMOSA's music has even captured the attention of rock greats like Tool guitarist Adam Jones, who recently shared his enthusiasm for the band on his social media, or Kyuss legends Brant Bjork and Nick Oliveri, who have expressed their love for SLOMOSA's sound and riffs. With a steadily growing fanbase from all over the world, more than 8,500,000 Spotify streams alone, the future is definitely bright for the band between the seven mountains
