A corrosive track from Tampa’s MEATWOUND and the band’s new Largo LP, is featured in a new video on DigBMX. The track “Flesh Tag” serves as an appropriately hard-hitting soundtrack for an intense video feature on pro BMX rider Matt Coplon.

MEATWOUND has also booked new tour dates in support of Largo, including a Summer trek. The newly-confirmed tour routing sees the band on the road for the latter half of August, winding up and back south throughout most of the states on the East Coast. MEATWOUND also plays two local shows this weekend in Tampa – Friday, June 9th with Child Abuse, Golden Oriole, and Ethical Trash, and Saturday, June 10th with The Absence, Dead To Fall, and Queen of Ex — with additional shows in the works for the weeks ahead.
MEATWOUND – featuring members of Combatwoundedveteran, Holy Mountain, Headless Dogs, Primate Research, and more — 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.

“…while the record is filthy enough to give you cholera, it’s a fuckfest of bass-powered noiserock and feedback-as-riffage. Something like Coalesce covering Daughters, or maybe it’s the other way around, but not even that really gets at the guts of this stuff.” – Decibel Magazine
“Largo gets in, gets out, and leaves a trail of bodies in its wake. MEATWOUND took the sound they introduced on Addio and made it faster, uglier and more vicious than one could have hoped for. Those looking for a good throttling would be foolish not to dive into MEATWOUND‘s singular, visceral world.” – Svbterranean
“What they do is part avalanche, part concrete-splitter, part acrobatic team (wearing steel-toed boots), part hummingbird the size of a condor (shut up, I’m doing this my way). They’re manic and punishing, but they’re also precise and inventive – and it’s loads of fun to listen to them cut loose…” – No Clean Singing
“Hell, at a scant 27 minutes and some change, Largo is a runaway truck that concusses you before you get a chance to notice its license plate number… In terms of making what appears to be hellish racket sound palatable and catchy, MEATWOUND brings Botch’s catalog to mind. Not a bad place to be.” – Ghost Cult Magazine
