Tombs have released their new album Savage Gold on June 10th to massive critical acclaim with Guitar World, Alt Press, Pitchfork, Terrorizer and many more calling it one of the best albums of 2014 so far.  Savage Gold is available to order via Relapse HERE and iTunes HERE.  The album is available in the following formats: Standard Black Vinyl 2xLP, CD and digital download. Today TOMBS presents a video for their haunting cover version of David Bowie\’s \”Heroes\”.  The video was directed by Jaclyn Sheer & Samantha Astolfi.  The song was originally recorded by David Bowie with Brian Eno in 1977.  TOMBS covered the song in 2012 with the German vocals provided by Ralph Schmidt (Hëllström, Planks).  Check out the exclusive premiere of the video courtesy of Steregoum HERE.  The video can also be viewed on YouTube HERE. \”We recorded an mixed the song on our own with the help of Tim Schmoyer in Boston.  We chose this version of the song because it was featured in the soundtrack of Christiane F, a 1981 German film by Ulrich Edel. It\’s a dark drama about a young girl\’s descent into drug abuse and prostitution.  I\’ve been listening to the soundtrack during the band\’s many trips to Germany and have always wanted to cover the song, says vocalist Mike Hill of the video. Mike Hill has launched a specialty coffee company, Savage Gold Coffee, inspired by his love for high quality, organic coffee.  The first roast, Savage Gold Prime, is an Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee bean grown between 6,000 and 6,500 feet above sea level. It is an aromatic and dynamic coffee roasted to perfection with a large flavor profile. It is sourced from a co-op of Ethiopian farmers and is 100% Fair Trade, certified organic and wet (mechanically) processed.  More info on the coffee is available via the official Savage Gold website HERE.   Decibel Magazine\’s \”Deciblog\” spoke with Mike Hill earlier this week about the new coffee company, read the interview HERE.
