Southern Lord eagerly confirms the label’s new partnership with legendary New York City-based noise rock outfit Unsane for the September 29th release of the band’s eighth studio full-length, “Sterilize.”
Since 1988, Unsane has pounded the planet with caustic grooves and foundation-crumbling riffs, having released LPs through a wide range of labels including Matador/Atlantic, Amphetamine Reptile, Relapse, Ipecac, Alternative Tentacles, and others, not to mention a wide range of singles, splits, and live albums.
Closing a five-year gap since the 2012 release of the “Wreck” LP through Alternative Tentacles, Unsane makes a vicious return with the pummeling “Sterilize,” a record that recalls the most defining elements of the band’s seminal releases. The album was produced by Unsane, recorded by Dave Curran at Gatos Trail Studios in Yucca Valley, California, mixed by Andrew Schneider at Acre in New York City, and mastered by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering in Chicago.
Advancing the release, Unsane has announced a run of US tour dates from July 15th through August 3rd, booked around the band’s performance at AmRep Bash 17 in Minneapolis, with Fashion Week providing support for the trek. Additional tour dates through the release of the new LP are to be expected.
