“This is the kind of rock ’n’ roll that demands booze, bad decisions, and debauchery, and has you singing laments the next day.” — CvltNation
“Stacks up the riffs… If you’re dying for something like Monster Magnet or old Queens of The Stone Age, then you’re going to dig Karma Vulture.” — Metal Injection
“Particularly as a first long-player, Something Better is all the more appreciable for the band’s aesthetic reach, and the sense of craft behind it — as well as being self-produced — speaks to the potential of the group to carry their accomplishments here forward… Catchy, straight up heavy rock and roll.” — The Obelisk

Karma Vulture is a desert rock power trio from Joshua Tree, now based in Nashville, consisting of singer/bassist Conor Spellane, guitarist Will Hammond, and drummer Ben Foerg. The band has a familiar yet idiosyncratic sound, blending elements of stoner rock and 90s grunge with hints of classic rock, psych and modern alternative rock for good measure. The band executes their earworm hooks and hammer-dropping riffs with equal aplomb. Or, in other words: It’s super catchy, super heavy and super dope.
Founded in late-2018, the band hit its stride with the addition of Foerg on drums, and released its first EP with their current lineup in early 2022. Death By Comfort was recorded by Norm Block (Mark Lanegan, Brian Jonestown Massacre) in Spring 2020 just as the world was shutting down due to the Covid-19 pandemic. They finished it remotely thru the pandemic, with mixing engineer Joshua Martinez, and then used the remaining months of the lockdown to record their first full-length LP, Something Better, which drops in April 2023.
Something Better will be available on CD, cassette and digital on April 28, 2023 via Bent Knee Records. Pre-orders are available HERE.
