Veteran Californian three-piece Acid King have announced the release of their first material in ten years in the form of new album Middle Of Nowhere, Center Of Everywhere. Above is 'Silent Pictures' off the record for your listening pleasure.

This is the trio's fourth album, put together from toiling away in their Bay Area practice space and a process largely based around improvisational jamming. The album was recorded at both Sharkbite and Tiny Telephone studios in San Francisco, and was produced by the band themselves and Billy Anderson. "We never played this music for popularity," says Lori S. of the band's approach. "There are no rules. We do everything how we want to. Acid King has always been driven by that." Middle Of Nowhere, Center Of Everywhere will be released independently in vinyl, CD and digital formats via Svart Records on April 20.
