At least a decade ahead of their time, Josiah had a three-album run between 2000 and 2008 that few in heavy psychedelic rock could (or can) match.
Nine years removed from their last release, the band coalesced and began jamming again, crafting songs with a darker edge to suit the times. Rumors of “The Resurrection” began to spread, and amid the pandemic-stricken latter half of 2020, they set to work on their return album.
Forging ahead to reclaim their legacy as some of the earliest architects of lysergic heavy psych, Josiah return in 2022 with the exultant We Lay on Cold Stone. Re-energized and in peak form, the band sear forth with a barrage of irresistible hooks and tripped-out riff-romps, utterly new yet subtly infused with vintage flashes of Cream and Grand Funk. Striding boldly into a new era, Josiah confidently claim a place amid modern titans of psychedelic heavy rock like Earthless, Kadavar, The Atomic Bitchwax and Graveyard, asserting vast gravitas in a style they helped create.
