Japanese Voyeurs Get Hole New video, single & lots of live dates

London blood curdling rock quintet Japanese Voyeurs will be releasing their feverish new single ‘Get Hole’ on April 18th and have uploaded a typically dark video for it. With a string of headline shows over the next month, Camden Crawl and a Trail of Dead support slot, they’ve also just been confirmed to support Black Spiders on their May tour.
Taken from their eagerly-awaited debut album‘Yolk’, single ‘Get Hole’ fuses vicious riffs with Romily Alice’s unmistakable sweet & sour vocals.
See the video here:
Japanese Voyeurs’ debut album ‘Yolk’ is due to be released later this year and was recorded 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.
Romily sums the record perfectly: “when we started out there weren’t that many new groups making heavy music, the kind of music we liked to listen to when we were growing up, we wanted to recapture that spirit and that brutality”.
Japanese Voyeurs are Johnny Seymour (Bass), Rikki Waldron (Keys), Romily Alice (Guitar/Vocals) Steve Wilson (Drums) and Tom Lamb (Guitar).
