“It’s been four years and two albums… and the group’s classic Sub Pop meets AmRep noise rock (with a touch of classic heavy metal thrown into the mix) has built up into a lean and mean beast of an operation.” — No Echo

No Echo is currently streaming “New Milk” from Chicago noise rock trio SALVATION. The scorching track comes by way of the band’s impending full-length, Year Of The Fly, set for release next month via Forge Again Records.

SALVATION have always been experts at hammering out no frills, no nonsense, noise rock, and on Year Of The Fly, they’ve perfected their take on the genre, sounding cleaner, meaner, and bigger than ever before. Captured at the famed Electrical Audio Studio in Chicago with engineer Mike Lust and mastered by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering, Year Of The Fly is a beautifully raw recording rife with crushing noise punk that takes sudden turns into unexpected but welcome heady realms. Opening with the brutal grind of “Slit My Throat,” the album unfolds into new and unexplored realms. From the damaged, pensive, acoustic cut “Failure,” to the spooky, minimal organ drones of album closer “Delusions Of Grandeur,” Year Of The Fly is undeniably a smasher front-to-back, the sound of a band at the height of its power.

Issues the band of their latest single, “‘New Milk’ explores the idea of failed relationships, killing your ego and reinventing yourself, all wrapped up in a dirty little bow… Or maybe it doesn’t. Maybe what we just described there is a lie…or maybe it’s the truth. Let it unfold into your own understanding. We just hope you enjoy the disgusting, noisy music we make.”

Check out “New Milk,” only at No Echo, at THIS LOCATION.

Year Of The Fly will be released on November 22nd on CD, LP, and digital formats. For preorders visit the Forge Again Records site at THIS LOCATION or Bandcamp HERE where opening track, “Slit My Throat,” can be streamed.

Initially the solo project of vocalist and guitarist Jason Sipe in St. Louis, SALVATION became the trio it is today four years ago when Sipe moved to Chicago and linked up with a pair of punk and hardcore stalwarts: bassist Victor Riley and drummer Santiago Guerrero. Combining the relentless rhythms of Melvins with the fried melodic sense of Bleach-era Nirvana, SALVATION explodes like a deranged blast from the past, still sounding fresh and exciting, no matter how indebted to the glory days of noise rock they are.
