Progressive psychedelic metallers BASK have entered the studio to record their third studio album with legendary producer Matt Bayles (PEARL JAM, MASTODON, MINUS THE BEAR, etc.) The record will be released by Season of Mist, making it the band’s debut to the label.
Speaking about the upcoming effort and working with Bayles, the band comments: “We are beyond excited to announce that we’ve begun work on our third record, and label debut, for Season of Mist Records at Echo Mountain Studios. We hope working in a studio that’s played host to an amazing eclectic roster, such as Band of Horses, Widespread Panic and War on Drugs, and the skill of veteran producer/engineer Matt Bayles, who’s credits include seminal works from Mastodon, Isis and Russian Circles, will capture the spirit and shape of our latest batch of songs. We can’t wait to share them with you.”

BASK hails from the mountains of North Carolina and was fully conceived in the fall of 2013 when guitarist Ray Worth, drummer Scott Middleton, bassist Jesse Van Note, and guitarist/vocalist Zeb Camp joined forces.
Since forming in 2013, BASK has released ‘American Hollow’ (2014) and ‘Ramble Beyond’ (2017), and toured North America and Europe with seminal artists HIGH ON FIRE and WEEDEATER, as well as contemporary figure heads, PALLBEARER, KAYO DOT, ROYAL THUNDER, and BLACK TUSK. The band has also shared the bill with a range of diverse artists, from Guided by Voices to Carcass and Refused on festivals such as Desert Fest Berlin and London, Speedfest in Eindhoven, Netherlands, and Heavy Mountain in Asheville, NC.
Their sound has been described as progressive and cinematic, containing glimpses of Appalachian tonality and heartfelt heaviness. Esse Quam Videri.
