The Great Sabatini To Release New LP

The noise metal aficionados at French label Solar Flare Records now proclaim the confirmed impending release of the newest LP from Montreal's The Great Sabatini. Solar Flare comments:

"While virtually unavoidable influence from genre superheroes Unsane, the Melvins, The Jesus Lizard, Today Is The Day are evident within The Great Sabatini's corrosive tones, the band tackles an endless array of approaches within the delivery of their well-honed and devastating hooks and vocal styles.

"Through a spew of independent and unsigned singles, EPs and two previous full-length releases since 2008 amidst bouts of regional touring as well as extensive tours of North America and Europe, the band has gained a loyal fanbase within the noise, metal and sludge circuits, including the heads of Solar Flare Records, who now brings the band into their ever-expanding roster of gnarled audio chaos, for the release of Dog Years.

"The Great Sabatini's third proper full-length, Dog Years was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Sean Pearson (Cursed, Shallow North Dakota), and boasts the band's raw, unpolished approach to capture n act with years of accumulated experience touring, writing and recording together. The aim was to create a hi-fi document with all of their lo-fi sensibilities, grit and live energy intact, and the results are astoundingly destructive.

"Additional info on Dog Years will be leaked over the coming weeks, preceding its release on LP, CD and digital release in North America on June 2nd. In conjunction with its street date, The Great Sabatini will also begin decimating stages abroad in support of Dog Years, including a nearly three-week-long tour out to the West Coast of Canada and the U.S. into the second week of June. Stand by for the full routing and more info in the coming days." More...

The Great Sabatini Posts New Video Clip

Canadian act The Great Sabatini has checked in with the following update about posting a new video clip online and posting an EP online for streaming:

"We've been sleeping on the newsletter thing... so much for regularity. Our excuse is a good one though... We've been busy chopping heads and throwing maidens over our shoulders, aka promoting our newest releases Matterhorn and The Royal We with our first string of dates around North America. Here's what else is new.

"The Mattehorn vinyl is still on the way. It's a bummer that we didn't have these in time for the dates in March but I'd rather not have them than have crappy sounding versions of them... the test pressings revealed some unwanted noises but this problem is being fixed. We will let all of you preorder people know as soon as we have the records and they are off to shipping. In the meantime, if you're so inclined, you can get a download of the album here or order the cdr (nicely put together by our concubines in the basement) from here.

"Our new EP, called The Royal We is available from our Bandcamp page or the No List Records Website, totally FREE. If you like this offering, please send it around and spread the word... the songs on there are our newest, freshest hymns to the Beast.

"Even though the record came out a year ago at this point, we have finally completed our video trilogy for the Napoleon Sodomit EP. We shot all the footage in October 2011 but preparations for birthing our 2 newest records and going out on tour in March kinda put the editing on timeout for a while. But here it is, a kind of low (meaning NO) budget short film comprised of all 3 songs from the Napoleon Sodomite record which makes little sense, but was a lot of fun to put together. Share the link for the video if you will, as we put a ton of hard work into writing, conceptualising, shooting and editing this fucking atrocity. More...
