Noisey have premiered a new track from El Drugstore’s forthcoming debut full length Plague Ship, which is out on December 31st. This new track is the wonderfully titled “Hipster Tits” and its spiraling instrumentation is sure to make you vomit. But in a good way, of course. Head over to Noisey to check it out now!
El Drugstore formed around 2008 by past and present members of New Jersey progressive outfit East of the Wall and have remained a rather silent entity since their inception. The trio of riff-manglers have released a handful of stand alone tracks and a split EP with noisy duo A Fucking Elephant, but are still relatively unknown despite being attached to East of the Wall, whose notoriety is slowly growing. But El Drugstore are bound and determined to change that with their mind-boggling full length debut, Plague Ship. The common brain is not prepared for this massive forty-five minutes of eccentric complexity and intricate musicianship.
Metal Sucks have premiered a new cut from El Drugstore’s (East of the Wall, etc) forthcoming debut full length, Plague Ship, which will set sail on December 31st through Nefarious Industries. The new track is entitled “The Natives Are Getting Useless” and I would liken it to the most frightening acid trip known to man in audible form. The instrumentation is spastic, dizzying, complex, and an all around good time if you like your music dripping with psychosis. Head over to Metal Sucks to check it out now.
The artwork and track listing for Plague Ship can be seen after the break.
Footage has surfaced of instrumental spazz bastards, El Drugstore, performing a new song live on December 16th at the St. Vitus Bar in New York. The song is reportedly titled “By What Ill-Begotten Means Have You Procured This Meat?” and I can only assume it will appear on the trio’s upcoming full length, tentatively titled Plague Ship. This song is all over the place. It’s heavy, extremely jarring and features a badass lick near the end that is mind blowing. Anyways, check out the performance below.
Instrumental technical metal trio, El Drugstore (East of the Wall, etc), are currently working on their first full length debut record. The record is tentatively titled Plague Ship and is being eyed for a Spring 2013 release. American Aftermath are here to hook you up with your first taste of new El Drugstore! Below, for your streaming pleasure, is a demo version of their new song “Fascinating Underpants”. The track is full of spiraling licks and jarring rhythms that will melt your measly brain upon listening. Guitarist Kevin Conway describes this track as being one of the more “straight-forward” tracks on the record but trust me when I say it is anything but. Check out this awesome track below! As an added bonus, we have an exclusive interview with guitarist Kevin Conway (ex-East of the Wall) that can be viewed below as well. Check it out nerds!
