The new album from Moab, Scion AV Presents: Billow, is now available to download for free. We’ve already shared tracks “I Concede” and “Whittled Away,” but this is the full nine-track monster. Billow is the second full-length from the Southern California trio and it is an impressive return. As Brooklyn Vegan recently wrote about “I Concede,” “It’s a big step for a band who now sound comfortable plotting their own path.”
The album follows up the band’s 2011 debut, Ab Ovo, which Decibel Magazine said conveyed “the spiritual ecstasy of making and listening to heavy music.” Verbicide noted that Moab “manage to take the classic sounds of ’70s hard rock and update them for the present.”

Moab recently played Scion Audio Visual’s Rock Fest. In an interview with the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, singer/guitar player Andrew Giacumakis discussed the band’s relationship with Scion AV: “I think they’re ultra important to metal in this community. Scion is keeping the faith for sure by promoting these bands that mainstream media won’t pay attention to.”
Last year Moab played the first Scion Rock Show in L.A. and last month performed at the 2014 edition of Scion Rock Fest. They also contributed “No Soul” to the Scion Rock Show 7-inch series, which is still available.
Now that you’ve heard them, watch Moab get interviewed by pro skater Sal Barbier.
