Publicist UK Releasing “Forgive Yourself” Via Relapse

Relapse Records is proud to present “Forgive Yourself,” the debut album from Publicist UK, a post-punk four piece comprised of members of Municipal Waste, Revocation, Goes Cube, Discordance Axis, Burnt By The Sun & more. The label comments:

“As one of the most intriguing cross-genre debuts in recent years, ‘Forgive Yourself’ is a nine song showcase sounding like Michael Gira (Swans) on a Saul Bellow bender whose dark and cerebral mood is lifted by the booming baritone of vocalist Zachary Lipez. Check out a stream of the album’s first single, ‘Levitate The Pentagon,’ below. ‘Forgive Yourself’ will be released on Friday, August 21 and digital pre-order for the album can be found via Bandcamp and physically here now.

“Originally conceived as a long-distance experiment, Publicist UK quickly and effortlessly became a fully functioning band. Featuring Dave Witte (Municipal Waste, ex-Burnt by the Sun, Discordance Axis, Melt-Banana), Zachary Lipez (ex-Freshkills), Brett Bamberger (Revocation, ex-East of the Wall), and David Obuchowski (Goes Cube, Distant Correspondent), many expected speedy, aggressive metal. Instead, the band defied expectations with ‘Forgive Yourself’ by creating nine rousing songs that are as moody and melodic as they are heavy and driving.

“After writing and rough-recording songs from the band members’ respective homes in Virginia, New York, New Jersey and Colorado during its early days, Publicist UK released two demos that went on to be featured by both Decibel and Noisey. Shortly thereafter, the band signed to Relapse Records and recorded its full-length in New Hampshire at The Wild Arctic Studio with producer Dean Baltulonis.”

“We went into the studio full of inspiration and energy, intent on getting straight to work—no experimenting, no messing around,” said guitarist David Obuchowski. “Dean had the same mindset, and the album was recorded at a breakneck pace and completed in a matter of days. We feel like Dean captured not only the atmosphere and mood but that urgency too.”

The album’s track listing is as follows:

01. Cowards
02. Slow Dancing To This Bitter Earth
03. Levitate The Pentagon
04. Blood Relative
05. I Wish You’d Never Gone To School
06. Canary
07. Telegraphing
08. You Are The Stars
09. Away

Piss Vortex Streaming Full New Self-Titled Album

Now playing in its gut-wrenching entirety (hosted by the fine folks at Invisible Oranges) is the filthy self-titled debut LP from Copenhagen’s Piss Vortex.

With twenty-three minutes of the band’s destructive, modernized, and dissonance-fueled grindcore soaking the vile album, Piss Vortex’s hectic tour de force in relentless creativity and off-the-wall musicianship here melds elements baring semblance at times to Antigama, Deadguy, Gorguts, Napalm Death, Discordance Axis, Rotten Sound and others.

The album was produced by Jakob Reichert Nielsen (Lack, Rising, Anti Ritual) and mastered by Brad Boatright (Integrity, High On Fire, Nails). Indisciplinarian will release Piss Vortex in one week, on November 3rd. You can also see the band live on these dates:
