The four year and seven month wait is finally over!!! This time period felt like the complete vanishing of the world's finest band but TRIPPER is now available everywhere and it is even more glorious than anyone could imagine. Hella makes an absolutely gargantuan return with their first album since There's No 666 in Outer Space, marking a distinct new chapter in their legendary catalog.

When Hella's debut record, Hold Your Horse Is, was unveiled on March 19, 2002, the greatest band in history was introduced to the world. The two people known as Spencer Seim and Zach Hill created a sound that had never been heard before. That one record alone showed an indescribable concoction of musical ability and outright genius, with each consequent album revealing new directions and techniques. An impressive string of releases in various formats occured over five years. On January 30, 2007, their final masterpiece was released, There's No 666 in Outer Space. Tragically, their output seemed to end when they finally realized their initial vision of being a five piece band.

Luckily for the world, Spencer and Zach have decided to once again join forces as a duo to enlighten minds and obliterate aural categorization. Tripper will come out on CD and LP via Sargent House one week from now, August 30, 2011. This album comes almost five years after their last one. In recognition of this monumental occasion, I will post songs from their mammoth career.
