RIYL: Gutter punks and sludgy drums
Label: In the Red
I don’t listen to a ton of punk these days. Look, I’m 35, and let’s face it, punk is really the music of youthful rebellion. So long ago I sold off my 90’s diy punk as fuck music and moved into other areas of music exploration.
Sure I still love the Ramones. Who doesn’t love the Ramones?
That being said there are still a handful of punk bands working today that just do it for me. Ex-Cult is one of those bands. They are back with their third LP, and first on In the Red, and if you act now you have a good shot at being in the first 200 orders to receive the orange variant.

In the year of the snitch, there are forces beyond your control that keep you up at night. Ghost notions that swirl around your room while you sleep. Your own pillow laughing right in your face while you fight for an hour of rest. There are voices that whisper from the corner, telling you everything you never wanted to hear. â€˜Negative Growthâ€™, our third album, is dedicated to fear and deception.
This collection of songs were conceived in Memphis and finalized in Los Angeles, with the help of our family doctor Ty Segall. It was created in February 2016, when we traded Memphis misery for a week of California sunshine. â€˜Negative Growthâ€™ is a nine-track nightmare, a death trip in the crystal ship. Out later this year, the institution known as In The Red Records will do the honors. The Hollywood Heat Seeker takes ten years off your life. - Chris Shaw
