A Fucking Elephant Recording New Songs This Weekend

New Jersey’s atypical progressive experimanglers A Fucking Elephant – who have been assaulting basements and forcing acoustic trauma since 2007 — will barricade themselves in the studio with engineer Colin Marston (Krallice, Dysrhythmia, Behold… The Arctopus) this weekend to lay down two new tracks. The material being recorded is for a 7” the duo – drummer Greg Meisenberg and guitarist Matt Keys — will be releasing in January, in conjunction with a stateside tour to support it.

The newly-confirmed 7” will be A Fucking Elephant’s first new material since the split full-length with cohorts El Drugstore, which dropped in early 2011 via Nefarious Industries, a label created by members of both bands and other local allies. The new 7” will also be released through the label, and will be joined by other new titles in the coming months.

More info on the studio session and upcoming live actions will be released in the weeks ahead. In the meantime get nuts with live footage of one of the new songs to be recorded for the 7”, bearing the polished title “I’m Addicted To Drugs And Sex And I Want You To Choke Me,” in the player below.
