!!! (CHK CHK CHK) RELEASES NEW SINGLE “COULDN’T HAVE KNOWN” W/ SUPER-FREAKY ANIMATED MUSIC VIDEO

IT IS TAKEN FROM FORTHCOMING LP WALLOP OUT FRIDAY ON WARP RECORDS

!!! return with the third offering from their new album Wallop, the energetic dance-pop number “Couldn’t Have Known”, complete with an incredible animated music video from Cheng-Hsu Chung. Wallop is set to be released this Friday, August 30th on Warp Records. 

The video takes you on a wild journey to the other side, featuring bouncing blobs wreaking havoc while on a trip to the museum, two lovers in stilettos boxing each other, and a futuristic, bondage filled club replete with shaking pierced scrotums and dancing alien beings all moving and grooving along to the house-inspired sounds of “Couldn’t Have Known”. A super freaky psychedelic trip, one that’s perfectly befitting of this tune from NYC’s dance-punk mainstays.  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.  —- Doesn’t it seem like everyone’s freaking out lately? !!! know the feeling well. The NYC dance-punk lifers have been chronicling the perpetual meltdown that is American society for nearly 20 years now, from the clattering full-band thrust of their instantly iconic 2003 single “Me and Giuliani Down by the Schoolyard (A True Story)” to the dark disco of 2017’s wonderfully eclectic Shake the Shudder.Their eighth full-length, Wallop, follows in the band’s grand tradition of plugging straight into our collective nervous system and sending funky, rubbery shock waves through the body politic. If you’ve found yourself rubbing your temples while contemplating the collapse of everything around us? Well, !!! are bringing the soundtrack to your next nervous breakdown….
