The Herms’ new album, “Welcome All Tourists”, begins with ‘Parades’, a surfy ‘House of The Rising Sun’ set in the blood-soaked sands of sunny Los Angeles. Thus the journey begins as The Herms create a new world of weird scenes, characters & environmental altitudes/attitudes that dive into the altered dimensions of Son of Sam’s master demon, General Jack of the Cosmos, with ‘General Jack’ (a choir of dogs barking at one point). From the anthemic ‘Ready/Set 94’, to the bipolar quiet/loud monster breaths in ‘Bezlo’, the bossa nova ‘Sounds Below’ evoking The Kinks & Arctic Monkeys, to the western expansion of ‘Get On (part II)’ conjuring themes of Westworld if it were set on Hollywood Blvd. Finally, the modular comedown of ‘Autopos’ rounds things out just right as the sun sets.

To add to the creative maelstrom, we will be releasing an iOS ’HERMS’ App with five original video games inspired by songs from the album. Each game, with the oddity of characters and storylines, is a unique visual representation to accompany the sounds from “Welcome All Tourists.” Tracks include ‘Bezlo’ ‘Get On (part II)’, ‘Chair and the Submarine’ ‘Nightcave’ and ‘Autopos’. Beat all five and the app unlocks a secret song.  Get your game on…Ready/Set ’94!!!
