“The Vast White Plains” is the leading track on the upcoming Solar Halos album. The nice folks at Terrorizer are streaming it now!
“Tripped out stoner rock psychonauts Solar Halos have just unveiled a brand new song entitled ‘The Vast White Plains’, and you can hear it here first, exclusively with Terrorizer.
There’s no doubting Solar Halos’ pedigree, as the band consists of Horseback and Caltrop drummer John Crouch, Fin Fang Foom bassist Eddie Sanchez and guitarist/singer Nora Rogers, formerly of Horseback and Curtains of Night.
