Los Angeles-based Painted Wives release their new song and music video for “Shangri La“.
“Shangri La” is the third track released off Painted Wives long-awaited forthcoming sophomore album New Medusa set for release this Fall via Century Media Records.
“Shangri La” follows the release of “Truth & Consequences” and, most recently, “Device“, from the forthcoming full-length. After a long and intense writing and recording span, New Medusa found the quartet rounded out by drummer Derek Eglit, guitarist Jeff Lyman, bassist Justin Morales, and lyricist Ryan Williams working with Cave In/Mutoid Man frontman and guru Stephen Brodsky and producer Machine (Lamb of God, Clutch).
The band spent a year conjuring New Medusa, which was mixed by Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Stone Sour). Along the way, songs were honed and twisted into a sound that invites comparisons to Alice In Chains, Mastodon and Black Sabbath, but emerges out of the riffy muck as something uniquely their own. “This feels like as much of a new start for us as a continuation of Obsessed with the End,” says Suitor. “In the past, we labored over every part, every lyric and probably over-thought things. Once we hit our stride, it started taking on a life of its own.”
