Neurot Recordings is pleased to release the debut from Arkansas southern rock collective Iron Tongue. Called "a solid slab of balls to the wall shameless rock, with a power and an edge and soul that rarely exists in music today," by Neurosis’ Steve Von Till, "The Dogs Have Barked, The Birds Have Flown" is set for release via Neurot Recordings on May 27th in Europe and May 28th in North America.
The band's publicist also issued the following press release:
"Fronted by Chris 'CT' Terry, the founding frontman of sludge legion Rwake, Iron Tongue formed when a group of veteran players with diverse musical backgrounds found a common interest in the need to get down and dirty and way, way gone.
"Churning a soulful blend of girthy, heavily amped, blues-based rock, Iron Tongue aren’t singing of magical moonlit escapades. The band offer up songs of pain, regret and heartache that recall everything from the proto-metal stomp of Blue Cheer and Grand Funk to the darkest hours of Kiss, Deep Purple, Buddy Guy and ‘Skynyrd. Having spent over three years performing steadily throughout the South, Iron Tongue has traversed the Midwest and East Coast with Memphis kindred spirits The Dirty Streets, in addition to sharing bills with the likes of Black Tusk, Scott Kelly, The Sword, High on Fire, Crowbar, The Body, Lita Ford and fellow Arkansans Pallbearer. A split 7” with The Dirty Streets, featuring a ballsy version of KISS’s 'Two Timer' served as a precursor to the creation their debut full-length for Neurot. More...
