Japanese Voyeurs – new single, tour cancelled & dates with Young Guns announced!
aaamusic | On 18, Oct 2010
London based alt rock quintet Japanese Voyeurs, will be releasing their new single ‘Milk Teeth’ on November 15th through Fiction. It’s the first single from their eagerly awaited debut album ‘Yolk’, due for release in early 2011.
As you will no doubt have heard by now, Japanese Voyeurs’ original tour plans for the next month had to be cancelled when headliners Against Me pulled out due to unforeseen circumstances. However, clouds and silver linings have meant that Japanese Voyeurs have instead been confirmed to support Rock Sound cover co-stars Young Guns on their UK tour throughout November and December – details below.
Japanese Voyeurs are: Johnny Seymour (Bass), Rikki Waldron (Keys), Romily Alice (Guitar/Vocals) Steve Wilson (Drums) and Tom Lamb (Guitar).
There is no explanation, no justification, but we defy you not to feel something stirring within yourself as the pummelling drums kick in and the lyrics come spewing out over psychotic riffs. ‘Milk Teeth’ is a beast, calling out for both your defiance and your embrace.
‘Yolk’ was recorded in a variety of studios across North America, over the spring with GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine/The Melvins/Jesus Lizard) in an isolated farmyard in the forests of Canada, and mixed by Alex Newport (Fudge Tunnel/At The Drive-In) in the sweat of the Brooklyn summer. Veering from the softest caresses to the most brutal of attacks, you can feel not only the dichotomy between the seclusion of the Canadian wilderness and the strip bars of inner city New York, but the internal psychodrama that makes the record such a visceral experience.
‘Yolk’will be released early next year on Fiction Records. The first track to be released from it is ‘Smother Me’ which can be downloaded for free from here: http://on.fb.me/aCLRio
