The Obsessed Announce First New Album in 20+ Years; Stream the First Single Here
If I’m counting correctly, The Obsessed are now on their third reunion. So is the old adage about the third time being the charm accurate? Only way to find out: listen to “Razor Wire,” the debut single from Sacred, The Obsessed’s first new studio recording since 1994’s The Church Within. The song is a fuzzy, crunchy, catchy psychedelic trip featuring a the use of a talk box and the lyric “I’d rather get high than pay the rent” (Hey, who wouldn’t?)… in other words, exactly what you’d expect from The Obsessed.
Guitarist Scott “Wino” Weinrich comments on the new album:
“I can honestly say, I think this is the best sounding recording of my career, and I am excited to release it on Relapse. This song ‘Razor Wire,’ I have been carrying around the title concept and main riff in my pocket for a couple years. The full song was born after applying real life experiences, with a little wishful thinking! Fuck control.”
