On the back of a limited Flexi Disc release accompanied by its very own Deathcrush magazine, the three-piece this time return with something a little more accessible in the recognisable shape of a 12" coloured maxi vinyl!
The four-track release, out via Norway Rat/Believe Distribution on the 7th October, again showcases the ferocity and energy the band pack. Opening with "Lesson #3 for Gina Kikoine / You Now" which can only be described as a hefty slice of metal-pop you'd expect from a Sleigh Bells/ The Fall get-together!
The epic five and a half minute Double A-side "Lesson #4 for Wharton Tiers / Strauss" takes the band even deeper into metal territory but retains the accessibility for all noise-inclined worshippers.
Over on the B-side, "Lesson #13 for Nanker Phelge / Fire", Linn Nystadnes spits the lyrics with the intensity of a snake charmer and as a surprise treat, Mau5trap-signed newcomer James Njie serves up a shameless, dance floor filling remix of the same track.
