The Virginia based noise rock duo will release their second album with the New York label
Hailing from Richmond, VA, bassist Abdul Hakim-Bilal and drummer Samuel Goff have been performing as the two piece band Among The Rocks And Roots for several years. Having released multiple live recordings through their Bandcamp page, Raga is their second full length record and is the medial instalment of an ongoing triptych of albums.
“Raga is the second album of a proposed trilogy that started with Samudra Garba Pathe and will end with Pariah,” say the band. “This trilogy details the cumulative journey that we have taken dealing with the issues that led up to a period of addiction for the both of us. While the first album details how we got there, Raga is the anger, hatred and frustration of being there. The lyrics deal with issues ranging from abuse, sleep paralysis, race, police brutality and isolation.”
Raga is released 3 March 2018 and is available to pre-order.
