Culture Abuse To Join Coliseum On West Coast Tour
Tour Kick-Off On July 31st In San Francisco, CA
“Spray Paint The Dog” Out Now via 6131 Records
Bay Area quintet Culture Abuse are bringing their scuzzy post-punk noise on the road this summer as direct support for Coliseum on their upcoming West Coast dates. Culture Abuse released Spray Paint The Dog, a blistering new 7″ single this past February via 6131 Records (order), and are excited to spread their own blend of chaotic noise rock, deviant garage punk, and elements of hardcore throughout the coast. Their sound blends abrasive dissonance and infectious hooks, creating a warped and pummeling sound, bursting with catchy earworms and crushing riffs. Check out the dates below.
07/31 San Francisco, CA @ Thee Parkside *
08/01 Los Angeles, CA @ The Roxy *
08/02 San Diego, CA @ Soda Bar *
08/03 Las Vegas, NV @ Backstage Bar and Grill *

* w/ Coliseum
“A fast-paced mix of quick classic punk guitar lines and hardcore power chords, the track is like repeated jabs to the face with well-placed hooks to keep from telegraphing the punches” – Stereogum
“this bunch of DIY horn-dogs have also got their wailing and massively scummy riffs down pat … they’ve tightened the riffage (just a tad) and studied up on METZ-like noise anthemry” – Noisey
“If you want a fun hardcore party record, this is the one for your self-destructive, hateful friends. It’s smart, nasty, and mosh-worthy” – Punk News
Following the digital release of their debut EP, The Day Dreams of Nothing, 6131 Records quickly jumped at the chance to work with this incredible band. In Fall 2014, Culture Abuse recorded three new songs, two for this single (teasing an album to come later in 2015) and one included on a 12″ vinyl reissue of their debut. The songs on this Spray Paint The Dog 7″, “Nicotine” and “Perfect Light”, demonstrate their ever-evolving style, moving deeper into a pop-driven aesthetic. Culture Abuse are channeling the drugged-out, melodic sounds the Bay Area delivered in the late ’60s, yet are still remarkably refreshing.
