Seattle punks share new track ‘feed me’
Watch video for ‘rot in hell’ on YouTube
US tour dates with Metz & Bully begin this week
Seattle trio So Pitted have shared ‘feed me’, a hulking, post-apocalyptic monster of a new track from neo, their forthcoming Sub Pop debut album, due February 19th. Stream it now on SoundCloud and YouTube.
Including both highlights ‘rot in hell’ and ‘feed me’, neo packs in eleven lean and snarling rebukes. Torch songs, and not in the traditional, unrequited-love sense, but songs that will torch your fucking house down. Screams and howls overtake chants and muttering, equal parts dejection, rejection, and convection, the hot, muggy air circling continuously. It’s fuzzy, angular, throbbing, and pounding, and still, ingrained in the songs by their makers, breathes that catchy quality present in so much of the music they love. Songs like ‘holding the void,’ ‘rot in hell,’ and ‘woe’ crash over and over, turning under themselves like waves, but as the measures tick off, the dog-eared melodies and familiar themes begin to reveal (read more at Sub Pop).
Having just added a run of European shows to their 2016 tour schedule, So Pitted will land in the UK for a three-date stint through London, Leeds and Brighton in March. The band will resume US touring this Friday, January 8th, with a show at Brooklyn’s Palisades. Highlights along the way include dates with label mates METZ, Nashville punks Bully, and appearances at SXSW in March. Please find a current list of tour dates below and check out the band’s live performance of ‘rot in hell’, filmed at The Echo in Los Angeles for Red Bull Sound Select’s 30 Days in LA Festival, on Pitchfork TV.
Sub Pop will release neo on CD / LP / DL worldwide on February 19th, 2016. The album was co-produced and mixed by So Pitted and Dylan Wall, recorded at The Old Fire House, Media Lab, Spruce Haus, the band’s practice space, and Tastefully Loud in Seattle, engineered by Wall at Tastefully Loud and mastered by Eric Boulanger at The Bakery in Los Angeles. Pre-orders are available from Sub Pop Mega Mart, iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp and Google Play.
