Louisiana Prog-Stoners FORMING THE VOID to Release New Album on Kozmik Artifactz!
"... a towering, majestic ode to their old Captain Beyond records and Alice In Chains cassettes. It's a juicy, smoky, doom-rock sandwich laced with crackling neo-grunge and a bucket of slimy green southern-fried sludge." CLASSIC ROCK
"Crunching stoner riffs with trippy lyrics that speak of mythical winged beasts, secret epiphanies ..." PROG MAGAZINE

"Forming the Void stake their claim as the pre-eminent stoner/doom band from the state with their second effort, Relic, a sterling collection of hook-laden riffs and clean vocals ..." METAL INJECTION
"Melding their influences, which range from Mastodon and The Sword, to Soundgarden and YOB, Forming The Void's riffs summon a sense of adventure." CVLT NATIONFollowing the release of last year's critically acclaimed Relic, Louisiana's preeminent prog warlocks, Forming The Void, are thrilled to announce news of their new album Rift, which is due for release this August on Kozmik Artifactz. Originally formed in 2013 in Lafayette - a place with an impressive reputation for raising underground rock into realms of the unknown - Forming The Void became one of the city's most talked about bands of 2017.
With the release of their third album Relic (voted album of the year on Heavy Planet), their colossal and atmospheric sound summoned the towering hard rock riffs and progressive influence of bands like Mastodon, Baroness and Torche. A distinctive sound that not only marked them out as "ones to watch", but a sound that promptly earned them recognition around the world as ambitious and gifted players, capable of producing, "Crunching stoner riffs with trippy lyrics that speak of mythical winged beasts, secret epiphanies ..."

The first single lifted from their new album is "On We Sail", an epic and devastating trip into the heart of a Sabbathian darkness.
