HIGH ON FIRE To Reissue Debut

High On Fire (2012) Adding to their ever-growing catalog of sonic enormity, Southern Lord Recordings today is extremely pleased to announce the reissue of The Art Of Self Defense, the classic first recording from Oakland power trio High On Fire. Set for release on July 31, the landmark long player has been completely remastered and enhanced by Brad Boatright (Sleep, Noothgrush, OFF!) and includes the addition of the band's first ever demo, two bonus 7" tracks as well as a 48-page booklet.

The Art of Self Defense track listing:

01. Baghdad
02. 10,000 Years
03. Blood From Zion
04. Last
05. Fireface
06. Master of Fists

Bonus 7" Tracks (2001)

The Art Of Self Defense was initially released in 2000 by Man's Ruin Records. Featuring the collective energies of guitarist/vocalist Matt Pike, drummer Des Kensel, and bassist George Rice with producer Billy Anderson, the record billows at the seams with Pike's instantly recognizable guitar tone, first unleashed during his days with stoner metal behemoths Sleep. An audio hail storm of piledriving riffs, booming rhythms and Pike's gruff vocal tirades, The Art Of Self Defense remains a staple in High On Fire's renowned catalog of audio greatness.
