Wenches stream Effin’ Gnarly
Bloomington, IN quartet Wenches (ex-members of screamo/noise band Racebannon) are streaming songs from their forthcoming debut album, Effin’ Gnarly.
Assembled from broken bits and leftover chunks of various known and unknown groups in the punk, metal, and post-hardcore world, Wenches hail from Bloomington, Indiana in the heart of the Midwest. Described by No Echo as “raw, no bullshit… undiluted rock realness” and in the vein of proto-punk bands like MC5 and The Stooges.
Tracked at Russian Recording (Built to Spill, Tortoise, of Montreal) and mastered by James Plotkin (Sunn O))), Pelican, Earth, ISIS), the band portrays the album as “high-energy screaming hard rock played the only way long-haired punk metalheads know how.” After a rotating door of bassists and drummers, the band has finally landed on what hopes to be a lasting lineup. Effin’ Gnarly follows a previously sold out three-song “demo” cassette and precedes the release of a limited edition 7″ single entitled State Fair Hair.
Effin’ Gnarly will be available on LP and download on February 26, 2021 via Master Kontrol Audio. Limited-edition cassettes will be released by Small Hand Factory. Pre-orders are available HERE.
