Arizona grunge/metal eccentrics THE OXFORD COMA have issued a previously-unreleased video for the title track to their Steve Albini-produced 2017-released second LP, Everything Out Of Tune.
THE OXFORD COMA‘s Everything Out Of Tune delivers a spectrum of effects-drenched tones, teleporting the listener into an altered state of listening. Created over a two-year cycle throughout which the entire band lineup was completely restructured, Everything Out Of Tune is undeniably an album which takes the band’s unique sonics to the next level. The band recorded with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago, utilizing the famous producer’s talent and vast arsenal of equipment and instruments, including the same guitars and amps as some of their most influential bands like Nirvana and many others have recorded with. Mixed by Albini and mastered by John Golden at Golden Mastering, the album features guitar from Intronaut’s Sacha Dunable on the lead track, “Trauma (Maybe I’m Forgetting Something.”
The new video was filmed at a show THE OXFORD COMA played supporting Big Business in August 2018 and edited by the band’s founding guitarist/vocalist Billy Tegethoff, who offers, “The song is the title track from the last album Everything Out Of Tune. It’s called ‘Everything IS Out of Tune (My Only Victories are Others’ Failures)’ because I’m annoying. It’s basically me whining about how the success goes to the most connected. Networking is a skill I’ve never been great at, so I’ve always been envious of those to whom it comes naturally. The video is coming out now because we have had a great response to a promo I ran on Facebook with part of this song in it. It got nearly a million views and provided us with a lot of good information on where we need to be touring (UK, incoming).”
