Twitching Tongues releases new digital album, ‘Disharmony Zero’, today

– October 30th, 2018 –

Today (October 30th), Twitching Tongues has released a new digital album, Disharmony Zero, which includes two previously unreleased demos: “Insatiable Sin Zero” and “Asylum Ave Zero”. Recorded, mixed and mastered at The Pit in Van Nuys, CA by Taylor Young in March 2015, this recording features the band’s Colin Young on vocals and drums, and Taylor Young on guitar, bass, and vocals. The studio versions of the two tracks appeared on 2015′s Disharmony.

Colin Young comments: “As some fuckin’ guy once said, always trust your first instinct…
Here are two songs that truly represent that, as we believe the final studio versions of both ‘Insatiable Sin’ and ‘Asylum Avenue’ have truly never measured up to these respective recordings, and we decided, truly just because we fuckin’ can, that we wanted to let people hear the final demo sessions for two of our favorite songs on ‘Disharmony‘. While the whole record might be misunderstood to a great many, these two versions of these two songs, in particular, better capture the spirit of what we had in mind those few years ago. Kiss my ass and then the rest of our ass. Enjoy.”

Disharmony Zero track-listing
1. Insatiable Sin Zero
2. Asylum Ave Zero

Twitching Tongues released their fourth full-length, Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred, earlier this year via Metal Blade Records. The album’s title was drawn from a quote by famed social philosopher Eric Hoffer – “Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life” – and it reflects the band’s mentality in approaching the record: paying homage to those who supported them while belligerently responding to their detractors. With “failure” as a core theme driving Colin Young’s lyrics, it also features his first foray into the political arena, motivated by the contemporary political climate to speak his mind. Directly inspired by film scores, the record has a strong epic feel, the band realizing their vision of having the music flow like a story being told. With interconnected parts, musical references and callbacks in each song, everything is tied together in a manner unlike any of their previous releases. At the same time, while maintaining the same levels of hardness and aggression that has characterized their later work, it features much more immediate and memorable melodies, which evoke the sound of In Love There Is No Law yet at the same time feel fresh and new.
