August 15, 2017
The record is off the best start possible in UK, and is today’s #1 Album in UK Official Album Chart Midweeks.
Recorded live to tape in just 5 days by venerated engineer Steve Albini (Nirvana, Shellac, Pixies) “24-7 Rock Star Sh*t” marks a return to the bands early roots with it’s raw, rough-around-the-edges approach and sonic aggression. This follows the recent and very limited edition white-label single Year Of Hate, which was only available globally via 247 independent record stores over a week in May (and which gave clues to the upcoming album in it’s run-out grooves). The single ‘In Your Palace’ was shared last month, giving further clues of the band’s activities, and now “24-7 Rock Star Sh*t “is here.
Released through the band’s own Sonic Blew label via Red Essential and Fat Possum imprint House Arrest (USA), “24-7 Rock Star Sh*t” is available digitally, on CD, limited edition and standard vinyl LP, and cassette through all reputable outlets.
