Swedish godfathers of stoner rock DOZER return after over a decade with their long-anticipated sixth studio album “Drifting in the Endless Void”, to be released this April 21st on Blues Funeral Recordings. Watch their brand new video for “Ex-Human, Now Beast” right now!
About Dozer’s awaited comeback, Dozer co-founder and lead guitarist Tommi Holappa comments: “It’s been 15 years since the last Dozer album and this is who we are now. We might be older, maybe not so much wiser, but I think we may have made one of our best albums. When we started writing new material, we didn’t have a clue what this band would sound like in the 2020s. It was a bit nerve-wracking at first, but after we finished “Missing 13”, the first song we wrote for the album, we knew we were onto something. The first single “Ex-Human, Now Beast” has all the energy, power and heaviness we’ve always loved to create, it’s proof we can still rock and we can’t wait for people to hear it!“
About the video: “As soon as I saw the track name, I knew I needed to do a video where one or more of the guys get beastified by a giant tentacled monster,” laughs Peder Bergstrand, director, Lowrider frontman and longtime friend of the band. “The result is a mix of horror, humor, and these relentless animated nightmare sections that I think match the track’s non-stop rocket fuel drum parts really well.“

Formed in the mid-’90s in the sleepy town of Borlänge, the Swedish foursome led the first wave of European-style stoner/desert rock in response to the tectonic heft and sun-baked fuzz of American bands Kyuss and Fu Manchu. Over a decade since their last outing, DOZER have now reawakened with a vengeance: their new album “Drifting in the Endless Void” is an undeniable affirmation of their status not just as forefathers of a movement, but as champions of volcanic energy and pure riff worship.
DOZER still bring the tumultuous churn that longtime fans expect, but their sound has become a gravitational mass that also pulls in massive sludge, fuzzed-out doom, space-tripping grooves, red-eyed psychedelics, and whatever else they find floating in the vast cosmic expanse. Their return to the musical landscape they helped shape is cause enough for celebration, but the explosive playing and fiery purpose is what makes “Drifting in the Endless Void” a truly unmissable experience!
“Drifting in the Endless Void” will be available worldwide on April 21st on various vinyl formats, limited digipack CD and digital. The ultra-limited deluxe vinyl edition will ship earlier to PostWax Vol. II subscribers. Preorder now on Blues Funeral Recordings website, Bandcamp and European store.
