The noisy, electronic duo of Justin Pearson and Nathan Joyner (AKA Leg Lifters) have announced the release of a new limited edition 7″. The new 7″ release will include the abrasive yet catchy A-Side “Radical Humiliation”, which can be streamed after the break. The B-Side will be comprised of a special cover of The Velvet Underground’s “Sunday Mourning”, which was recorded on the day of Lou Reed’s passing and features guest vocals from Travis Ryan of Cattle Decapitation. The 7″ will be pressed to clear vinyl and will be limited to 500 copies, which can be pre-ordered here. The 7″ will be released on March 11th, so jump on it.
Retox have released a new music video for their track “Biological Process of Politics”, which comes from their new album YPLL which came out today. Watch as the spiraling, zany track is set to footage of an attempted presidential assassination. It’s fun for the whole family! Be sure to pick up YPLL ASAP. You won’t be disappointed.
The punks in Retox (The Locust) are beginning to reveal dates for their upcoming North American tour that will commence in May. The following eighteen shows will be in support of the band’s new album, YPLL, which will be released on May 7th. Check out those dates below as well as their new video for their track “Mature Science”.
Retox’s (The Locust, etc) new video for their track “Mature Science” has arrived online via Lambgoat. The track will appear on the band’s upcoming full length YPLL, which is slated to be released on May 7th through Epitaph/Three One G. The track is a rapid fire burst of spastic hardcore that is set to a gory video of Retox abducting a police officer, disemboweling him, pulling a hooded KKK member from his bloody stomach cavity and then proceeding to slit his throat. It’s quite the family friendly affair! You can view the new video below as well as their previously released single, “Congratulations, You Are Good Enough”.
The hyperactive hardcore bastards in Retox (The Locust, etc) will be releasing a new album on Epitaph Records this year. The album will be titled YPLL (years of potential life lost) and will be released on May 7th and will feature the following twelve tracks:
Don’t Fall In Love With Yourself
You Lost Me At “It Wasn’t My Fault”
Congratulations, You Are Good Enough (featuring guest guitar from Nick Zinner of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs)
I’ve Had It Up to Here I’m Going to Prison
The Art of Really Really Sucking
Biological Process of Politics
Nose to Tail
Consider the Scab Already Picked
The band have released a live performance video of the track “Congratulation, You Are Good Enough” which can be viewed below.
Take a moment to look at the band name, the album title and the ridiculous artwork. When you are finished analyzing what you see, please tell me how you cannot be intrigued? It was recently brought to my attention that Baltimore based noisy aberrations Sexgender exist and need to be heard. Sexgender’s platform is all about promoting sexual freedom, gender role awareness and completely visceral, psychotic noise. Their seven track, eighteen minute debut, Transgenital, is a short but sweet little bastard of heart failure triggering noise rock.

The Locust have released a new music video for their track “Spitting in the Faces of Fools as a Source of Nutrition”. This 56 second ditty will be featured on the band’s upcoming, 44 track rarity compilation, Molecular Genetics From the Gold Standard Labs (July 31st). The video is pretty disgusting so I am sure all of you will love it! Check out the video over at AltPress.com.
Retox is a fairly new band featuring The Locust’s Justin Pearson and Gabe Serbian and Festival of Dead Deer’s Michael Cain. They recently released the video for their song “Ten Pounds of Shit in a Five Pound Bag” and it’s quite the catchy tune. Check it out below. Retox is one half of The Locust. So if you like The Locust, you will like Retox.
