As Tampa, Florida-based caustic hardcore punk outfit MEATWOUND prepares their third LP, Culero, for August release, the first single has been issued through new video for the album’s raging “Refusal,” which has been premiered through No Echo. The video hits in conjunction with the announcement of new East Coast tour dates surrounding the album’s release.
The band was founded by scene veterans from Combatwoundedveteran, Holy Mountain, Headless Dogs, Primate Research, and many prior acts throughout the past two decades or more, who unify those styles and tones into MEATWOUND’s gnarled style of noise rock-drenched hardcore punk. Comprised of ten new tracks, Culero was recorded by Mark Nikolich at Atomic Audio in Tampa with additional recording by Dan Byers at Rock Garden in St. Petersburg and mastered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios. Matt Akers provides guest analog synth on the track “Elders,” and the lyrics to album closer “…In The Fields With The Beasts” were respectfully borrowed from Ray Bradbury. The bold Culero cover art was created by Vincent Locke, with booklet art by Unexpected Spectre, and the layout and design handled by vocalist Daniel Wallace.
No Echo is hosting the debut or Culero’s “Refusal,” through a new video created by Wallace; watch it RIGHT HERE.
MEATWOUND’s Culero will see release on vinyl August 2nd through Wallace’s own Financial Ruin, with distribution through Dead Tank Records, and the digital via Pax Aeternum. Find digital preorders HERE and watch for vinyl preorders and additional audio previews from the album to be issued in the coming days.
