THE GURU GURU RELEASE NEW TRACK ‘CHRAMER’
TAKEN FROM THEIR SECOND STUDIO ALBUM ‘POINT FINGERS’
OUT JANUARY 31ST 2020 LUIK RECORDS/GRABUGE RECORDS
THE GURU GURU shares the convulsive live video for ‘Chramer’, taken from their sophomore album ‘Point Fingers’, which will be released on Luik Records (BE) and Grabuge Records (FR) on January 31st 2020. THE GURU GURU’S latest offering digs even deeper into turmoil than their last; An auditory aberration that spirals into madness.
“Chramer is about the feeling of the world coming to an end and you are part of the cause. It is too late to react and there’s nothing left but the greatness of destruction. The power of a woman’s touch, the littleness of a troubled soul. The power of nature over reason. Having to deal with it eventually.” – Tom Adriaenssens
‘POINT FINGERS’ was produced by Wouter Vlaeminck (Raketkanon, Kapitan Korsakov), mixed by David Bottrill (King Crimson, Tool, Coheed and Cambria) and mastered by Heba Kadry (Chelsea Wolfe, Deerhunter, Lightning Bolt).
THE GURU GURU has been happily dealing in borderline rock since 2012, combining feverishly angular guitars with off-kilter poly-rhythms all complimented by erratic and unhinged vocals. While TGG’s influences are drawn from the likes of METZ, Pere Ubu, Deerhoof, The Jesus Lizard, The Mars Volta & Andy Kaufman, the indie-math/psycho-noise rulebook is torn apart, resulting in chaotic songs that somehow seem to develop into wriggling earworms.
Praised for their live performances, THE GURU GURU is a must-see… With palpable, electric energy oozing from the stage, vocalist Tom Adriaenssens balances on the verge of theatrical psychosis. TGG has made their mark playing across Europe sharing stages with the likes of Brutus, Raketkanon and Kapitan Korsakov as well as appearing at festivals such as ArcTanGent (UK), Portals (UK), Ment (SLO), Monkey Week (ESP), Rock Herk (BE), Sziget (HU) and Pukkelpop (BE).
Be sure to catch them live…
