As Florida’s corrosive MEATWOUND kicks off their East Coast Largo 2017 tour tomorrow, the band issues a new single through Magic Bullet Records, which includes a reworked version of a track from their recent Largo LP, as well as a Ministry cover track.
MEATWOUND delivers seven new songs of ungodly, sonic devastation with Largo. While a lot of the scuzzy, surging groove of the debut album can be found, the band has pressed down on the accelerator a bit, resulting in faster and more violent-sounding results this time around. As with their debut, the Largo LP was recorded by Dan Byers at Rock Garden Studio, with mastering by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound, and the record’s visuals were handled Chris Norris, aka Steak Mtn.
The Largo LP was issued in May through Magic Bullet Records, who now presents a new two-song MEATWOUND digital single just in time for the new tour. The single leads with a re-recorded version of the Largo track “One Black King,” and is paired with a crushing cover of Ministry’s “Burning Inside.” Both tracks feature new drummer Shannon Corr and guest vocals from Matt Coplon (Reversal Of Man, Light Yourself on Fire).
Largo is available HERE and HERE. Also stream and order MEATWOUND’s new “One Black King” / “Burning Inside” single HERE.
MEATWOUND is also releasing a new two-song 7” as a split release between Dead Tank Records and vocalist Daniel Wallace’ Financial Ruin label. Bearing the tracks “Gristle / Vermin” and “Implant,” the first song is now streaming alongside digital and vinyl preorders RIGHT HERE. Stand by for additional info on the record in the coming days.
MEATWOUND launches their East Coast Largo 2017 tour tomorrow, kicking it off in Orlando. The tour plows its way up the coast through the end of the month and includes shows with Bölzer, Trepaneringsritualen, Child Abuse, Netherlands, Bangladeafy, The Ditch And The Delta, Dutchguts, and more. MEATWOUND is also booking shows for the fall including the band’s participation at the mighty The Fest in Gainesville in late October where they’ll share the stage with Against Me!, Hot Water Music, Superchunk, Hum, Pegboy, Snapcase, Rainer Maria, and dozens more.
