Not wasting any time, the band is currently writing for their currently untitled second album, scheduled for release in early 2015.


PILLBUSTER released their previous full-length album via Stonerkill Records last summer. The record was also produced by Dick Hodgin, and received rave reviews. Lithium Magazine described it as having “brutal breakdowns, trippy tempo-changes and bone-crunching vocals… an impressive debut.” MusicUG.com called it “Raw, tough, and straight from the throat of modern southern metal…”, and HeadbangorGTFO.com described the record as “raunchy” and “groove oriented.”
