TheObelisk Premiere WOODHAWK 'Quest For Clarity' + "Vagabonds of The Western Gig Tour&q

From the foot of the majestic Rocky Mountains comes Calgary, Alberta’s WOODHAWK. Masters of straight ahead riff-rock wizardry, the power trio released an EP in 2014 and have continued forging ahead. Made of equal parts 1970's Birmingham and a myriad of 21st century heavy who’s who, WOODHAWK are purveyors of riff-centric rock and roll.

Capable and original, the band is able to craft anthemic fist-pumping songs while forgoing tired stoner rock clichés. With time travel tested themes of science fiction, swords and sorcery, the band’s lyrics are born from snowy winters, hot practice spaces and pages of dog-eared paperbacks. While the musicianship reinforces recollections of Black Sabbath, modern influences that have helped you smash air drums or highway speed limits are undeniably present. Set to unleash their debut full-length 'Beyond The Sun' produced by the band with Jesse Gander (Bison, Japandroids) on April 7th, the band are giving a fans a taste of their second single 'Quest For Clarity' exclusively premiered on at the following link: Vocalist / guitarist Turner Midzain comments on the track: “Quest for Clarity’ was one of the last songs we wrote for the record. It’s about taking a step back and really looking around at what’s going on. Sometimes you need to step back in order to move forward. We felt this song really tied the two sides of the album together. It’s a bit of a different side of us with more harmonies and contrast than some of our previous straight-ahead riffers. The band first single video 'The High Priest' can be viewed here:
