This year Mesa Cosa raised the devil, started their own underground snake worshipping cult, pronounced their love of blood and brains, and even started a big fire. Most recently, Melbourne’s five (sometimes six, sometimes seven) headed hydra released a new album and have been on the road plugging it the last few weeks in both Australia and Japan.

The tour continues this week stopping in at Sooki Lounge in Belgrave tonight, the Cambridge Hotel in Newcastle on Friday and Frankie’s Pizza in Sydney on Sunday.

El Es Demons‘ is a 12-track 45 minute trip squeezed onto a record that you can order now [Here] and stream below.

They said we couldn’t fit it all in one vinyl, WE JUST LOWERED THE AUDIO QUALITY

Still fatigued from the unexpected success of their first two sold out releases, Mesa Cosa managed to find the inspiration in the hum drum of catching the 86 tram and thinking about what would happen if everyone in it were suddenly sucked into a giant satanic wormhole upon which there is no return. ‘Satanic songs from the 86‘ (Working title) will be the accompanying folk-punk acoustic release no one is waiting for.

Recorded by Nao Anzai and mixed by Stu Mckenzie, the record includes what are sure to become timeless classics such as ‘Ghostdog‘ a song about a dead dog that becomes a dead ghost, and ‘No Return‘ celebrating the life and times of Thelma and indeed, Louise.
