Denver-based Doom rock band SHEPHERD are gearing up for the release of their debut studio EP, ‘First Hand’, which is out November 20th on Destruent Records. Fans can get their first taste of the upcoming record by checking out the band’s new single “Chariot“, which is out now and available on the major streaming platforms. Shepherd’s lineup consists of Holden Sims (vocals/bass), Austin Garrett (guitar/backing vox), and Nathan Bilodeau (drums), with the three-piece drawing inspiration from alt-metal pioneers like Deftones, Mastodon, and Torche, along with elements of outlaw country and folkloric chanting. The end result is something that’s sonically engrossing, unrepentantly loud, and bound to take hold of listeners and not let go.
SHEPHERD’s debut EP, ‘First Hand’ , is available for pre-order via the group’s Bandcamp.
