ANNOUNCE FORTHCOMING LP
RELEASE SINGLE “SERBIA DRUMS”
‘WALLOP’ IS OUT AUGUST 30TH VIA WARP
WORLD TOUR ANNOUNCED
!!!, the iconic New York City dance-punk outfit, have returned with the exuberant new single “Serbia Drums” from their forthcoming new album, Wallop, due out on August 30th via Warp Records.
Wallop, the band’s eighth LP, is another stellar addition to the wildly impressive catalog they’ve built over the course of over two decades together and stands as a testament to their hardworking approach and ceaseless desire to push things further.
Recorded over the past year in lead singer Nic Offer’s Brooklyn apartment, the band picks up where 2017’s Shake The Shudder left off, further exploring the fringes of dance music with a focused edge, a care-free spirit, and their signature knack for big hooks, leading to new creative highs in a career filled with them.
“Our process was to get loose and get into uncharted territory,” says Offer.
Wallop sees friends from across the spectrum appearing on a number of tracks, including Liars frontman Angus Andrew, Maria Uzor of British dance aesthetes Sink Ya Teeth, and Glasser’s synth-pop wizard Cameron Mesirow, who all join Offer and !!! co-vocalist Meah Pace on this barn-burning party of a record.
“We’re not the kind of band that sits down and says, ‘Let’s make a record now,'” producer and multi-instrumentalist Rafael Cohen continues. “We just keep going, which is good because it leads to less of a narrative for each album.” With an array of producers lending a hand—including Cole M.G.N. (Beck, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Julia Holter), Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck), and longtime collaborator Patrick Ford—Wallop was eventually stitched together to reflect the colorful, body-moving tapestry that its end result represents.
The band has also just announced a world tour in support of the forthcoming album, where they’ll be taking their dynamic, groove-laden live show on the road to audiences across the globe. Full dates are below.
