THE OBSESSED release new single “Realize A Dream” off upcoming “Gilded Sorrow” album on Ripple Music; full US tour announced.

US doom metal giants THE OBSESSED release their new single “Realize A Dream” taken from their anticipated fifth studio album “Gilded Sorrow”, to be released this February 16th through Ripple Music. The band will be touring the United States extensively this spring in support of the new release.

Says frontman Scott “Wino” Weinrich about the song: “This track is an example of how amazing the universe is: I wrote this track while still in high school. Later, I showed it to Dale Flood, who asked to record it on the Unorthodox’s “Asylum” album engineered by Frank Marchand. Fast forward to The Obsessed’s “Sacred” sessions with Frank. Out of the blue, he said that we should cover this Unorthodox song. I replied, “Realize A Dream?” He said, “Yeah, how did you know?”. “Because I wrote it!”. This song is about destiny, questions on existence, and a human’s quest for answers related to life. It’s a real old song, but still relevant in my opinion.”

Fronted by legendary guitarist and vocalist Scott “Wino” Weinrich, iconic doom and heavy metal powerhouse THE OBSESSED comes roaring back after seven years with their awaited new studio album and Ripple Music debut “Gilded Sorrow”. Expanded to a four-piece with Jason Taylor on rhythm guitar, their music is more aggressive, straightforward and downright mean than ever before: firing on all cylinders, the foursome delivers their most rocking album of all time with “Gilded Sorrow”. Described by Wino as “the heaviest thing he’s ever done“, this new sonic onslaught from the mighty East Coast foursome is about to leave an indelible mark on the 2024 heavy music landscape!

“Gilded Sorrow” was produced by Frank Marchand, Scott “Wino” Weinrich and Jason Taylor. Mixed and engineered by Frank Marchand and mastered by Alan Douches. It will be issued on vinyl, CD and digital on February 16th through Ripple Music.
