HIGH ON FIRE: Southern Lord Recordings to Reissue The Art of Self Defense

Southern Lord Recordings is 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 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 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.
