In the summer of 2012, math rock/alt-metal act Wot Gorilla? really impressed us with their very technical third release ‘Kebnekaise’.

Many live shows followed the release of the album and the band really built up a following.  With this in mind, we expected to hear more from them – maybe hints that a new album was imminent by the end of 2014, given that a new track ‘Joints’ was posted on their Bandcamp page in July.

Sadly, it seems we’re going to have to wait a bit longer – possibly much longer – for an album as the band have gone on hiatus following a live show on 7th November 2014.  Frontman Matt Haigh is going travelling for six months, but the band have recorded a couple of new songs to release in his absence.    [Visit the Wot Gorilla?
