Today, Wand released the first single, ‘Stolen Footsteps’, off their third record, 1000 Days, which is expected to be released this Fall. It’s a mellow psychedelic song drawing similarities to the softer side of Thee Oh Sees and even White Fence. I wonder if this is any indication of the direction we should expect from the third album. Will the next Wand album take the listener on a journey through space and land somewhere near Hawkwind?
For fans of Ty Segall, Fuzz, Pentagram

More About Wand via intheredrecords.com…
September 2013, Wand was quietly dismembered and ritually eaten in the hills near Dodger Stadium. Wand reborn as “Wand”— an obese organ falsely organized as 4 overjoyous nerds. Four flesh balloons betting on a few aging amplifiers. I hear they listen to Here Come the Warm Jets on loop all day and plot mail fraud. I hear they stole Dale Crover’s car and sacrificed it to the weather near the Los Angeles County Line. Some few things, at least, are certain: Wand hears ghosts. Wand prefers serpents. The Sun is the mother of every fiction. All phenomena will be consumed in alphabetical order, but desire will recirculate ad infinitum. If all else fails, Wand will just devour more hands.
