Four stringer finally found
Wo Fat are without a doubt regarded as one of the leading forces in riff-heavy stoner rock. With a sound that pulls from straight up blues and swamp boogie, as much as the classic riffing of Black Sabbath, Wo Fat’s Ripple Music debut, “Midnight Cometh” ranks as their most critically praised album ever, even earning the boys a full -page feature in Classic Rock Magazine. Having separated with their long-term bass player, Wo Fat engaged the services of Ryan Lee, from Crypt Trip, who ruled on bass duties for the band’s recent European tour. But still, a full-time anchor on bass had to be found.
Now the wait is over.
Wo Fat are thrilled to announce the introduction of another master of the low end to the mighty Wo Fat family.
Kent Stump says, “We would like wish a warm, rock and roll welcome to Zack Busby – the new bass player of Wo Fat. Zack is a road-hardened, veteran Rock and Roller of the Dallas heavy music scene who has stepped in to fill some heavy shoes, and has kicked some ass in so doing. We’re thrilled to have Zack laying down the low end for us and you can check him out at our upcoming shows.”
Look for Wo Fat to hit the road for Psycho Roadshow and other special dates, as well as frequent shows in their hometown of Dallas, Texas. Meanwhile, Wo Fat and Ripple Music are working on a couple special Wo Fat projects, including a split 7″ with label-mates, Mothership, and a re-issue of the limited Wo Fat “Live At Freak Valley,” LP that the band self-released, this time complete with a bonus 10″ of more head-swirling live jams.
And more Wo Fat is to come. Stay tuned. The rock goes on!
