Indie88 Premiere: Walrus Share Single ‘Family Hangover’

Halifax rockers set to drop debut LP June 9

Halifax’s Walrus are set to release their debut LP Family Hangover on June 9, via Dan Mangan’s Madic Records/Arts & Crafts. Today, Indie88 is pleased to premiere the title track from the forthcoming release.

Walrus have been described as a band that “could be thrown on a bill between Love and Sabbath,” and “Family Hangover” lands somewhere in middle of those comparisons with its soulful build to a 60s psychedelic rock-inspired fuzzed-out finish.

Have a listen to the title track from Family Hangover below.

Walrus are set to open the Fort York Stage on Saturday afternoon at Field Trip. Check out the complete lineup and schedule here.
