FESTIVAL veterans Ozric Tentacles are back with a new studio album – and you could win copies.

One of the most influential bands to emerge from the UK festival scene, the Ozrics layer ambient and ethereal landscapes with freeform dub trips, incredible rave grooves and psychedelic progressive rock. It’s an open exploration of music and the soul.

New album ‘Paper Monkeys’ proves that despite being over 25 years into their career the band are still a force to be reckoned with.

During this long career, the band has flourished through a number of line-up changes, spawned several side projects, created their own record label, put out close to 25 albums, scored a hit record and sold over a million albums world-wide.

And yet, the basic motivation behind the band’s existence has never wavered.

Their signature blend of hippy aesthetics and raver electronics with spiralling guitars, textured waves of keyboard and midi samplers, and supergroovy bass and drum rhythms continues to delight fans across the world.

The band play The Arches in Glasgow on Friday, May 11. We have three copies of the new CD – ‘Paper Monkeys’ – to give away. To be in with a chance see this week’s Herald.
