2016 sees Statues move on with a new vocalist (Alex Shom) and drummer (Matt Unkovich), and ready to write and release new music. The first offering from the chaotic hardcore act, Dogswamp, is an unrelenting and technically advanced piece of aural brutality, with riffs oozing from everywhere. If you like your music tormented and tumultuous then this band is for you. It also comes with a killer music video.
Guitarist Scott Kay spoke with Metal Hammer about the release: “We’re excited to release our first offering for 2016, and our first song with our new members, Alex and Matt. It’s aggressive as always, but we wanted to experiment with a more conventional song structure. We hope you dig it. The video was directed by Drew Kendell and the song was mixed by Matthew Templeman and mastered by Simon Struthers. We’re also proud to say all production elements were kept within our home city of Perth.”
You can see Statues in their hometown on 16 April 2016 at the Amplifier Bar in Perth for their CD Launch. Tickets available at the door.
