The riff-twisting duo A Fucking Elephant has completed its latest batch of percussive auditory penetration, and is preparing to drop the "Seven Inches" 7” on January 22nd.
The New Jersey-based twosome hammered out two gnarly new tracks with engineer Colin Marston (Krallice, Dysrhythmia, Behold… The Arctopus), which will end a two-year release gap, the last new material having been captured on A Fucking Elephant’s split full-length with cohorts El Drugstore nearly two years ago.
As with the split, "Seven Inches" will pop out on Nefarious Industries, the indie label formed by deviants from both bands. The wax pressing will be limited to 500 copies overall -- 250 on black vinyl and 250 on yellow -- in addition to the tracks being available digitally. The track listing is:
Side A: I'm Addicted To Drugs And Sex And I Want You To Choke Me
Side B: A Bunch Of Good Looking Roundeyes More...
New Jersey’s atypical progressive experimanglers A Fucking Elephant – who have been assaulting basements and forcing acoustic trauma since 2007 -- will barricade themselves in the studio with engineer Colin Marston (Krallice, Dysrhythmia, Behold… The Arctopus) this weekend to lay down two new tracks. The material being recorded is for a 7” the duo – drummer Greg Meisenberg and guitarist Matt Keys -- will be releasing in January, in conjunction with a stateside tour to support it.
The newly-confirmed 7” will be A Fucking Elephant’s first new material since the split full-length with cohorts El Drugstore, which dropped in early 2011 via Nefarious Industries, a label created by members of both bands and other local allies. The new 7” will also be released through the label, and will be joined by other new titles in the coming months.
More info on the studio session and upcoming live actions will be released in the weeks ahead. In the meantime get nuts with live footage of one of the new songs to be recorded for the 7”, bearing the polished title “I'm Addicted To Drugs And Sex And I Want You To Choke Me,” in the player below.
