Brooklyn’s WEIRD OWL Unmasks New Video “SKIN THE DAWN”

WEIRD OWL, the Brooklyn band that creates music by “searching out the convergence of imagination, poetry and sound,” has just released its sophomore album Build Your Beast A Fire (Tee Pee Records). The follow up to the band’s 2009 debut Ever the Silver Chord be Loosed was recorded with Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Witch, Sonic Youth) and Bishop Allen’s Justin Rice and has been called “the great lost classic-rock album” and “a trippy prog journey”. Today, Brooklyn Vegan premieres WEIRD OWL’s far-out, cult music video for the track “Skin the Dawn”.

WEIRD OWL will hold a special Build Your Beast A Fire album release show tonight at Brooklyn’s Union Pool.
