Poland-Based Progressive Psych Doom/Stoner Quartet TORTUGA Premieres Music Video For Epic New Single, „Epitaph“!

This Friday, October 27, 2023, Polish progressive psych doom and stoner act, TORTUGA, will celebrate the release of their much-acclaimed third studio album, titled Iterations, via Napalm Records. In support of their new record release, the band has announced a first leg of tour dates with many more to follow soon. Find all upcoming TORTUGA shows listed below!

With their 2017 self-titled debut, TORTUGA took the heavy stoner and psychedelic doom metal scene by storm, followed by their sophomore offering, Deities, in 2020. Compared to its predecessors, their forthcoming album Iterations moves from monolithic stoner-doom to progressive and experimental facettes, enriching its listeners’ auditory experience while managing to mature the band’s epic doom and stoner trademarks. Songs such as  the previously-released single „Lilith“, kicking off with its raw drum beat and turning into a melodic groove anthem, showcase the authentic sound and unconventional songwriting of TORTUGA.

In a world of over-polished studio productions, it’s even more exhilarating to discover Iterations. It’s a haunting trip through time and space, full of light and shadow, that culminates with the epic album closing track and official single, „Epitaph“.

TORTUGA comments:
„“Epitaph“ is our reinterpretation of the timeless Seikilos epitaph, known as the world’s oldest surviving complete musical composition with notation. This composition strikes a delicate balance between melancholy and optimism, carrying a message that underscores the importance of cherishing life as a precious treasure, given its fleeting nature. We’ve tried to retain the essence of the original piece, but we also wanted to infuse it with our own musical interpretation.

The music video for „Epitaph“ draws from our band’s adventures during tours, gigs, and parties, offering a glimpse into our life as a band. It encapsulates the essence of the song, conveying our mission to extract as much joy as possible from life, all while recognizing its inevitable conclusion.“
