The HEX DISPENSERS got shipwrecked off the coast of the Pacific Northwest, the circumstances of which remain a mystery to this day. Stranded on a former Devil’s Island sanctuary, Dave Bessenhoffer (guitar, vocals) formed the GRAVEYARD OF THE PACIFIC along with the water-logged skeletons of Alex Cuervo (synths,backing vocals) and Alyse Mervosh (drums,backing vocals), both joining Dave in Texas doom-pop purveyors HEX DISPENERS and are themselves an EERIE FAMILY. This record trods down similar haunted sonic pathways and inhales your last signs of life with ghostly grave-wave rock. Entitled SORCERER, the songs drag you for a death surf ride into the frigid waters of the Pacific.
