On November 25th, Las Vegas trio Spiritworld will usher in DEATHWESTERN via Century Media — a sophomore outing that expands upon its predecessor, Pagan Rhythms (2021), in visually and sonically astounding ways. Vegas' own James Bousema was enlisted for a twisted cover illustration Todd Hailstone directs a mini western horror movie for today's release of the title track. It rips and roars with punk bravado, kicking you off into high gear at breakneck speed with instrumental excellence.

Frontman Stu Folsom comments:

"Super stooooooked to announce our new single and video DEATHWESTERN will be out! I started writing our new album right when I finished Pagan Rhythms. At that point, I had been playing guitar everyday for about a year and it was - no joke - the highlight of my days. Just banger riff after banger riff jumping out of the Viper Blood Tele. It took six months to get four songs together that I thought could stand up to Pagan. Then I knew I had another full length. This was the 4th song I wrote and it became the title track and our partner in crime and A&R extraordinaire, Mike Gitter's favourite. When we finished tracking, I vividly remember getting chills. The intro whammys are 100% intentional White Zombie worship. ‘La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Vol. 1’ was SUCH an important record for me. From samples, to groove, to incorporating horror into metal... definitely one of the most influential albums of my youth. I'm following that blueprint still. Always have. Can't wait for this video to drop... finally!"
