Gouge Away have released a new two-song E.P. and the B-side / cover of the iconic Pixies track Wave of Mutilation, which is available now. You can listen to the track via YouTube below.
Vocalist Christina Michelle comments on the song, “This is a fun way of getting back at people who are upset that we’re named after a song title.”
The ‘Consider b/w Wave of Mutilation‘ E.P. follows the one-year anniversary of Gouge Away’s acclaimed full-length ‘Burnt Sugar,’ and the band continues to sink their enraged critiques into societal ills and injustice.
Recorded by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker), A-side Consider is a strikingly aggressive song; lyrically it stands as a powerful artistic statement on blind nationalism and patriotism in the modern age. B-side Wave of Mutilation is a fantastic Pixies cover. 25% of the profits from the sale of this 7” will be donated to the International Rescue Committee – more information on the organization and their mission can be found at rescue.org.
Although Gouge Away aren’t currently on the road— the first leg of their tour supporting Circa Survive has been postponed— the band hopes to be back out for the tour’s second leg in May and June depending on how thing play out in the world. All dates can be found below.
