Gama Bomb Reveals New Album "The Terror Tapes" Details

Irish thrashers Gama Bomb have unveiled the artwork and track list for their forthcoming album “The Terror Tapes."

The band’s fourth album, to be released on April 19th in Europe and April 22nd in the UK, followed by a US release on May 7th, boasts a cover illustrated by veteran movie poster artist Graham Humphreys - who created pieces for classics A Nightmare On Elm Street and Evil Dead.

“We grew up in terror of VHS covers painted by Graham, but we never knew his name,” says vocalist Philly Byrne. “We found him, had the audacity to chat to him, and now it’s a dream come true to work together and to see the astounding work he’s done for us.The cover shows a man being consumed by a giant, living tape machine. It’s got the feeling of a grubby old 1980s video sleeve I think. It ties in perfectly with our obsession with old technology and mad horror imagery. It’s the best album cover we’ve ever had. Everyone else’s album art sucks because of this.”

“The Terror Tapes” will be preceded by a single for the track “Terrorscope,” available both as a completely free download on March 26th, with a vinyl release following in April.

“It was really important to us to give people some music for nothing,” says Byrne. “It’s how we get our music and we want people to know we’re cool with them doing that, as long as they support us. Support comes from a lot of different places, not just the front pocket.”
