Big Scenic Nowhere - Dying On The Mountain

A new psychedelic-stoner rock project featuring members of Yawning Man, Fu Manchu, and more has formed until the title of Big Scenic Nowhere. The collaborative project has a debut EP set for release on Sept. 13 titled Dying on the Mountain via Blues Funeral Recordings.

The band recently premiered "Towards The Sun," with Bob Balch (Fu Manchu) providing insight into its creation:

“Towards the Sun” is a result of Gary Arce and myself jamming riffs. We jammed for like 5 hours and then I went back in and grabbed sections and pieced them together. We started talking about guest musicians for this project and Tony Reed from Mos Generator came up. Thomas Jäger from Monolord was mentioned too. Stoked we got them both to contribute. Mario Lalli on bass and Bill Stinson on drums rounded out the rhythm section. I think you can hear all of the bands represented in this track if you listen closely. This is also one of the many times I’ve laid down a solo with the intention of constructing one later and recording over the first one. Almost every time that happens, I end up keeping the first one. This is no exception. First take keeper!

Get full line-up information after the jump.
