Tee Pee Records signs Worshipper

Official press release: Boston-based metal band Worshipper has signed to NYC's Tee Pee Records, the independent record label known for releasing landmark albums from acts such as High on Fire, Graveyard, Earthless and Sleep. With a sound described as "darkly epic," Worshipper has earned consistent accolades since its formation, being named the "Metal Artist of the Year" at the 2015 Boston Music Awards and, most recently, being chosen over 23 other participating bands as champions of the 2016 "Rock and Roll Rumble," a competition hailed as "The World Series of Boston Rock" that has taken place annually since 1979. Worshipper will release its full-length debut, Shadow Hymns, on August 28. The record was recorded at Q Division, Mad Oak, and Converse Rubber Tracks Studios with producers Benny Grotto (Aerosmith, Orange Goblin) and David Minehan (The Replacements) and showcases Worshipper's melodically thunderous sound that The Obelisk says "balances classic metal riffs and doom tendencies with soaring-style clean vocals and fast-moving grooves, as much Candlemass as High on Fire." Through its unique mix of contemporary and classic influences, Worshipper prove that the horn-throwing soul of melodic heavy music's past still burns brightly. "We couldn't be more pleased to be welcomed to the Tee Pee family," comments guitarist Alejandro Necochea. "We think it's a perfect fit and we are immensely proud to have our music released by the same label that put out some of our favorite records of the past couple decades."
