West Coast post-hardcore/sludge metal faction HORSENECK is pleased to unveil their newest video for “Margaritadelphia” off their recently released full-length, Fever Dream. Shot safely with each member filming their parts separately in quarantine, the clip features a guest appearance by Deftones drummer Abe Cunningham and is currently playing at BrooklynVegan.
Comments guitarist Anthony Paganelli of the clip, “‘Margaritadelphia’ is about being stressed. It was written through the eyes of someone that is always looking for easy way out instead of facing their problems head on. The video is meant to be lighthearted and hopefully brings some laughter during these heavy times. We wanted to make this video to not only keep busy ourselves, but more importantly keep people’s spirits up and stay united. It’s a weird time but we’re in it together.”
Adds BrooklynVegan, “A song about stress with a lighthearted video sounds like exactly what we need right now.”

Fittingly titled, HORSENECK‘s eleven-track Fever Dream shifts seamlessly from spatial distortion, to specific detail, trying to navigate a nightmare of an existence with the grace of a butcher knife. Fever Dream is driven by the darkness and uncertainty of the world. You can hear it in its melodies, lyrics, and unorthodox use of horns and keys all throbbing under the weight of its own sonic psychosis.
Engineered by the band’s own Lance Jackman at The Dock in Sacramento and mixed and mastered by Eric Stenman (Will Haven, Far, Weezer) at The Appliantz Shop in Encino, the record includes guest vocals from Grammy nominated rock ‘n’ roll pioneer Gary U.S. Bonds and indie rock/folk hero Jules Bee (Baenziger) from Sea Of Bees.
Fever Dream is out now on vinyl and digital formats. For orders, visit the HORSENECK Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION where the record can be streamed in full.
Featuring former Will Haven guitarists Anthony Paganelli and Lance Jackman, current Chelsea Wolfe drummer Jess Gowrie, and bassist Lennon Hudson, HORSENECK released their critically lauded debut length album, Heavy Trip, in February of 2017. At once heavy, pummeling, psychedelic, and introspective, the record drew comparisons to the likes of The Melvins, Queens Of The Stone Age, and Red Fang. On their latest output, Fever Dream, HORSENECK has taken their songcraft to a far deeper, darker level. Incorporating a more democratic approach to the songwriting process, all four members contributed to the music and lyrics. The band spent over a year writing and refining songs until the finished product was something somber, heavy, and experimental.
“…a melodic, dark sonic trip of intense sludge.” – Revolver
“…a truly entertaining and aptly feverish experience as HORSENECK already showcases massive skills blending passionate melodies and crazy catchy grooves that you won’t forget easily.” – The Offering
“Different influences blend together like they were always meant to belong together. The hooks are indescribably catchy. The interplay of different vocal styles is particularly pleasing throughout a delight of an album. This thing is just plain amazing. It needs to be heard, not discussed.” – The Sludgelord
“…a full-blown, sound monster of super group proportions, and by far one of Sacramento’s newest hidden treasures.” – New Noise Magazine
“More experimental, harder riffing, more melody and a darker heart, Fever Dream bristles with an intense anxiety at the state of the modern world and collides new instrumental flavorings and influences into the mix, making a record that sounds fresh and unique in a field that can often be oversaturated….” – The Sleeping Shaman
