Having been described as everything from “a new wave of metal pop” (Noisey) to “super fuzzed stoner rock” (CMJ), NYC’s distinctive sludge/soul-inspired post-punk outfit NETHERLANDS are thrilled to announce their debut album, “Audubon”, will be released through PROSTHETIC RECORDS worldwide on June 17. Pre-order bundles including the album on either CD or white variant vinyl (limited to 300 copies) paired with an exclusively designed t-shirt can be purchased now at http://store.
Recorded with Tom Tierney (Tidal Arms), “Audubon” is a three-dimensional moody, noisy, sludgy juggernaut, solidified over nine tracks of murderous riffage and infectious hooks. The trio recently teamed up with
Sami Jano and Steve Meierding (http://www.samiandsteve.com) to direct the stirring, gory arcade-esque music video for their new single “L.M.M.”, which can be viewed via CraveOnline.com HERE or streaming below.
“L.M.M. is what we call one of our “hybrid bangers” “, commented NETHERLANDS frontman Timo Ellis, ” It’s distinct from many of our other often less melodic, more brutal numbers. Sami and Steve brilliantly conceived and executed this video and and I’m extremely stoked and grateful to have worked with them on this!”
“AUDUBON” TRACK LISTING
NETHERLANDS incendiary live shows have an intensity that simultaneously recalls the brutality of hardcore along with the palpably foreboding atmosphere reminiscent of the early proto-metal greats. The band recently appeared on the West Coast with Napalm Death and Melt Banana, while previously having shared stages with diverse acts including Mutoid Man and The Giraffes.
