Official press release:

In early 2020, Bongzilla started their own label called Gungeon Records and released a re-issue of their classic album Apogee. However, in March of 2020 it would be announced that Cooter Brown would retire from the band due to health and family reasons, with Bongzilla choosing to continue as a thunderous three-piece.

A few months into the pandemic, Bongzilla began rehearsing and recording for several different record projects – A limited Wake Brewing 7 inch, a full length album titled Weedsconsin, an LP split with the band Tons, and a 7 Inch Split with Boris, the first of a 7 inch Split Series released on Gungeon Records.

All projects were recorded at Future Apple Tree Studios in Rock Island, Illinois in October of 2020 by the legendary John Hopkins before his sudden and unexpected passing in the late fall of 2020.

Bongzilla signed to the Italian label – Heavy Psych Sounds in 2021 and released his new album in several years Weedsconsin, as well as a limited 7 Inch from Wake Brewing, followed by the Bongzilla / Tons Split for the HPS series – Doom Sessions. All releases were released in 2021.

The band is now coming back with a brand new album that will see the light in Summer 2023 via Heavy Psych Sounds.

The band shared the following:

All Dabbed up Bongzilla are super excited to be putting out Dab City on HPS records!!

Since the legalization of marijuana, and introduction of concentrated in many states of America. Bongzilla has reached new Altitudes. Dab City is the result of many hours of nectar collecting and dabbing! Obtaining a level of highness to channel riffs and jam them into the Stone sphere!

Currently, the band is set to tour the U.S. and has a European tour lined up for May.
