CLITERATI: Portland Hardcore Punk Brutalizers Featuring Poison Idea, Voetsek, And Murderess Alumni To Release Self-Titled EP Via Tankcrimes; Five-Track Offering Streaming In Full


“Hopefully these songs will make you wanna get your clit in the pit.” – CLITERATI

Portland hardcore punk brutalizers CLITERATI — featuring within its riotous ranks Poison Idea, Voetsek, and Murderess alumni — will release their self-titled EP via Tankcrimes late their month. Recorded and mixed by Andrew Grosse and mastered by Jose DeLara at Caravan Studios on their home turf in Oregon, the five-track punisher will be made available on cassette on December 9th, 2017.

CLITERATI is a band who believe in equality through inclusion. We are queer, straight, people of color, and white,” relays screamer Ami Lawless. “Our influences include the bands Doom, L7, and Bolt Thrower with a healthy dose of Pacific Northwest D-punk. This band was brought together by Amelia Collins and we continue in loving memory of her vision to bring a breath of fresh air to Portland punk. These five rippers are the result of spending many hours in a dark dank Portland basement while smoking copious amounts of weed. Hopefully these songs will make you wanna get your clit in the pit. The positive responses at our live shows has been off the hook. We’re looking forward to taking CLITERATI on the road in 2017.”
