Garden of Heathen is a true heavy hitter. 

A melodically driven stoner punk track built up by hefty drums, smooth riffs and catchy lyrics, featuring Lou Koller from New York hardcore legends Sick of it All on vocals. 

This is the first single from the band´s upcoming album, which was recorded by Tue Madsen (Meshuggah, The Haunted, Halford) at Antfarm Studios in Denmark.

Bokassa comment: 

«Garden of Heathen is a fast, riffy and melodic stonerpunker with one of our best choruses. A band favourite and a perfect way to kickstart a new album. There’s just something about the explosiveness of the track that makes it a real banging tune in our opinion. The fact that, the legend that is, Lou Koller from Sick Of It All appears on the track is nothing short of epic in our minds!» 

The band who has built an impressive career through heavy touring, high technicality and unique punkified take on stoner metal, are now due for an extensive EU tour with heavy rock legends Therapy? in Nov. and Dec.

Therapy? released their impressive 16th album “Hard Cold Fire” in May. 

Here´s Jørn from Bokassa note on the tour and Therapy? anno 2023;

«I already think «Poundland of Hope and Glory» is one of the best tunes of 2023 so the fact that we get to see it live 26 dates over UK and Europe with Therapy? alongside all their hits is awesome!»

About Bokassa:
