Stoner-rock outfit Fuzz shared “Mirror”, the final single to appeared on their forthcoming third studio album—appropriately titled III—due out this Friday. The eerie video which arrives just in time for Halloween was directed by Joshua Erkman, and features homages to the body horror work of David Cronenberg. The horror-inspired video finds Fuzz back in the fold that made them a highlight of the stoner metal genre in the 2010s, as well as launched Segall into indie prominence.

Combining the heavy-hitting sounds that fans have been clamouring after for five years with the grotesque imagery of body horror puts an exclamation point on Fuzz’s statement: We Are Back.This latest track follows previously-released III singles “Spit” and “Returning”. This new album is the first from the Ty Segall-led project in five years, and was set to be accompanied by the group’s first North American tour. Unfortunately, COVID-19 laid waste to those plans, but Fuzz still plans to head out on the road this winter.

Director Joshua Erkman said of his involvement in the projectIn an abstract way I wanted to incorporate some of the thoughts that have been swimming around in my head about isolation; it’s pretty hard to avoid thinking about that these days. Making the video was an exciting challenge given our current circumstances – how do you shoot a rock ‘n’ roll band performing in a safe, but visually interesting way? In this case the answer was myself and the cinematographer, Star Rosencrans, dragging the band out to the middle of the desert with just a camera, some optical filters, and the bare minimum amount of lights needed.

Fuzz, the psych-rock project of Ty Segall, guitarist Charles Moothart, and bassist Chad Ubovich, have announced their first album in five years. Entitled suprisingly III, the eight-track affair is due out 23rd October through In The Red records.

“III” both active and reactive. Charles Moothart, Ty Segall and Chad Ubovich are Fuzz. Fuzz is three. and III has returned. songs for all, and music for one. III was recorded and mixed at united recording under the sonic lordship of Steve Albini. Keeping the focus on the live sounds of the band, the use of overdubs and studio tricks were kept to a minimum. Albini’s mastery in capturing sound gave the trio the ability to focus entirely on the playing while knowing the natural sounds would land. it takes the essential ingredients of “guitar-based music” and “rock and roll power trio” and puts them right out on the chopping block. it was a much more honest approach for the band. Three humans getting primitive, staying primitive. the goal was never to reinvent the wheel. sometimes it’s just about seeing how long one can hold on before getting thrown off. three points reflected in three mirrors; a pyramid of sonic destruction and psychic creation. Nothing people feed the roots while the freaks fly free in the treetops—blind to vines, eyes closed, stuck in spit, triumphing the returning of beginnings and ends returning while beginning to see the time collapse. Love is the only way to annihilate hate, and sketchy freaks live to bleed. all shades of colour, truth and lies,III is the pillar of unity and singularity. all is nothing, and only nothing can generate everything. log out, drop thought, turn up.

Speaking on Returning in a statement, Fuzz described the song as “an auditory meditation on the power of one and the different perspectives of one”, relating the song to the band’s long-awaited return.

“Whether it is the singular person looking inward, or a group of people coming together as a single unit. As the opening track of the record, it serves as a sort of mission statement or mantra for the album. Not only is it an echo of the return of Fuzz, but also a broader return to form – raw and empowered through vulnerability. In order to maintain a focus on the Fuzz’s live sound, Albini encouraged a minimum in overdubs and studio trickery.

This isn’t the first time that Segall and Albini have crossed paths, as the engineer also recorded Segall’s 2017 self-titled record. From the upcoming album “III”. Out 10/23/20 on In The Red Records.

CFM is the project of one Charles Moothart, the California garage-rocker who plays in Ty Segall’s Freedom Band, Fuzz, and GØGGS. Last week, he released his third album as CFM, “Soundtrack For An Empty Room”, much of which he write while out on tour with Segall. And today, he’s sharing a new video for the dreamily psychedelic LP cut “Greenlight,” a black-and-white clip that follows a deformed humanoid wandering a desert landscape. As Moothart explained to The song “Greenlight” comes from a very vulnerable and surreal place in my mind. I wanted the visual experience to have a dreamlike quality similar to some Kenneth Anger movies. Josh had the idea for the humanoid wandering through a surreal feeling wasteland, and I thought the idea was great. Josh and Star did an amazing job making it feel like a dream sequence of confusion and conflict which is essentially what this song is to me.

Want loud? Los Angeles-based power trio Fuzz does that, pounding out relentless, ear-splitting riffs with abandon. But they do more, too. For starters, Fuzz is a guitar band par excellence. Name another band where every member—even the drummer—is a guitar-playing badass. Team Fuzz dominates the new wave of SoCal garage-punk-psychedelic-stoner-rock. They are prolific, restless, enigmatic, ubiquitous—their combined output is prodigious—and they’re forever releasing, touring, or supporting something.

At their core, Fuzz is simple enough. Ty Segall (singer, songwriter, guitarist, and solo artist) sings and plays drums. Chad Ubovich (guitar and vocals with the Meatbodies, guitar and bass with Mikal Cronin) holds down the low end. And Charles Moothart (guitar with Ty Segall, GØGGS, and more) plays guitar and is the band’s primary riff generator. With so many different projects, maintaining focus could be difficult. Moothart says it isn’t. “Fuzz is a very specific sound so it’s an easy thing to separate in that way,

Ty Segall’s band Fuzz play Burgerama, pay homage to Woody Allen. Fuzz is a band consisting of guitarist Charles Moothart (Moonhearts / Ty Segall Band) & drummer Ty Segall. Fuzz was formed as an outlet for Moothart’s affection for serious, heavy riffage a’la Black Sabbath, Blue Cheer & Jerusalem. Live they are augmented by bassist Chad Ubovich (Meatbodies / Mikal Cronin band)

San Francisco, Los Angeles, heaven, hell, lunar fields, subterranean hallucinations, traffic jams, sleepless days, hazy nights, recollection or blind reflection. It is all there and so should be you. 2015 and 2016 will bring a new surge of slime, fuzz and otherwise bittersweet concoctions of earthly lettering. It will be heavy, chaotically controlled, softly serpentine and blindingly barbaric

From the upcoming, self-titled album.Which came out in October 14th, 2014. intheredrecords.com .L.A. rocker Chad Ubovich has done time on guitar and bass in Mikal Cronin’s band and on bass with the Ty Segall-affiliated garage rock project FUZZ. He’s now fronting his own band, the marvelously named Meatbodies, and they’re putting out a self-titled LP on In The Red Records this fall. Lead single “Tremmors” matches straight-up Zeppelin crunch with colorful psych-rock flourishes that remind me of ’90s Flaming Lips and Tripping Daisy. Fans of humongous power chords, shit-kicking drums, and wildly wailed melodies

Ty Segall an American musician and songwriter and a member of many different bands known for his love of garage bands, Noise Rock, Indie Rock, Punk Rock, Psychedlica, and Glam he plays drums guitar and a prolific songwriter to date he has 12 albums plus his band Fuzz listen to his set at Coachella
