(PR) Weird Owl will release their sophomore album Build Your Beast A Fire on July 26 via Tee Pee Records. T

he follow up to the band's 2009 debut Ever the Silver Chord be Loosed was recorded at Verdant Studio in Vermont with Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Witch, Sonic Youth) and The Drawing Room in Kingston, NY with Bishop Allen's Justin Rice.

"'Build Your Beast a Fire' represents Weird Owl in its most structured and melodic incarnation yet," commented vocalist / bassist Trevor Tyrrell. "The album is part magical, part scientific; part futuristic, part ancient; part muscular, part psychological; part heavenly and part terrestrial. It dwells perfectly in a universe of its own creation".

Weird Owl will host a special Build Your Beast a Fire album release party on July 22, performing live at Brooklyn's Union Pool. The band has also announced a gig on May 20 at the new Brooklyn venue Saint Vitus, where it will share the stage with label mates The Atomic Bitchwax and Mirror Queen.

Weird Owl's sound comes from several ages at once. Most obviously, the band is rooted in 60's psychedelia, but there's also a strong surge of 70's rock pushing through much its music. Influences of blues and Americana can be found in the slide guitar playing and yet there are heavy songs throbbing with reverb-drenched guitar, but still possessing a Crazy Horse-like back-to-the-land feel.
