BoomBox Announces New Album “Western Voodoo” Available October 19th, 2018

BoomBox has announced their new full-length record, Western Voodoo is set to release October 19th with single, “Selling Fun” releasing August 24th. “Western Voodoo may be the most musically diverse album the band has ever released,” front man Zion Godchaux explains; “There are only a few rules. It should be heavy groove. It should make you want to move.” BoomBox is widely known for their energetic live shows, and this record is a true testament to just that. In support of their upcoming release, BoomBox will embark on a 40-city US tour starting in early 2019, dates will be announced early this fall.

Since first emerging in 2004, founder, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Zion Rock Godchaux has been quietly seasoning this simmering recipe to perfection. However, it reaches a boiling point on his forthcoming 2018 fifth album, Western Voodoo. Frontman Zion Godchaux comments, “I’ve learned more about engineering and the technical aspects of recording. [This last year has] been a time of soul searching. I can follow any Ideas that I want to. So there’s a lot more organic instrumentation. I’m just trying to develop more sonic real.” Appropriately, he dubs the sound of Western Voodoo, “Dirty Disco Blues.” Within that realm, Godchaux fuses a funky strut with electronic energy and danceable swagger powerful enough to cast a spell of its own.

“You hear about different forms of magic around the world,” he goes on. “The West, in general, has its own voodoo influenced by the blues. That’s what shaped me as a musician growing up in this country. It’s hard to put in the words, but you know it when you hear it.” At the same time, the Muscle Shoals, AL native stays true to what attracted countless fans in the first place.

“I remain open to anything you would hear coming out of a boombox,” he explains. “There are a lot of different vibes and angles, but it still adheres to a universal rhythm. This new record is the most musical and varied, yet it’s tightly wound in respect to that syncopation. Overall, I’ve further developed the sound people are used to.”

In the end, the new music kicks off the brightest and boldest chapter yet for Godchaux. “Our best side is somewhat medicinal,” he leaves off. “All of the rhythms, melodies, and frequencies add up to these healing properties. I hope people feel rejuvenated and re-focused on some level when they hear us. That’s Western Voodoo.”
