Unsane To Release New Album

Southern Lord eagerly confirms the label's new partnership with legendary New York City-based noise rock outfit Unsane for the September 29th release of the band's eighth studio full-length, "Sterilize."

Since 1988, Unsane has pounded the planet with caustic grooves and foundation-crumbling riffs, having released LPs through a wide range of labels including Matador/Atlantic, Amphetamine Reptile, Relapse, Ipecac, Alternative Tentacles, and others, not to mention a wide range of singles, splits, and live albums.

Closing a five-year gap since the 2012 release of the "Wreck" LP through Alternative Tentacles, Unsane makes a vicious return with the pummeling "Sterilize," a record that recalls the most defining elements of the band's seminal releases. The album was produced by Unsane, recorded by Dave Curran at Gatos Trail Studios in Yucca Valley, California, mixed by Andrew Schneider at Acre in New York City, and mastered by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering in Chicago.

Melvins Sell Out The House In New Orleans

The staff of One Eyed Jacks taped a crude “Sold Out” sign on the door at 6 o’clock. Those hoping to pay at the door were disheartened at the news, but happy for the band that they so quickly sold out the venue. Those with the foresight to purchase ahead crowded the sidewalk beginning at dusk. They blocked the historic sidewalk to the beaded and soused tourist-traffic trying to find their way to the supposed Shangri La of Bourbon Street or away from the intense never-ending party nightmare that it really is. But these eager customers were determined to see something more worthy. More...
