The Loud announce debut album ‘Harris Shutter’ plus 7” single ‘Amy’s Gonna Get You

THE LOUD met through a shared love of modern & 60s psych & garage sounds…think T.Rex scrubbed up via a post-punk facelift, mixed with The Yardbirds, The Monks, The Spencer Davis Group, 13th Floor Elevators & The Beatles, through to BJTM, Smith Westerns & The Horrors. Following appearances with Black Lips, Echo & The Bunnymen and Iggy Pop this summer, the group will release their debut LP, “Harris Shutter”, on Liverpool independent Payper Tiger Records.
Beneath THE LOUD’s swathes of feedback and E.S Posthumus noise, lies a melodic core, a voice that’s both tender, sinister and precise; an effective vehicle to raise and tighten the inherent tension of the music; their own interpretation of the dark underbelly of modern youth. A reincarnated, Northern-English Gary Monk, sobered after 22 years of the current British condition.
This June 20th, Amy’s Gonna Get You gets a 7’ vinyl release, while LP ‘Harris Shutter comes out on August 22nd, both through Payper Tiger Records. Talking of the release, vocalist Lee Pennington said:
“Harris shutter has been a labour of love. We had a great time making it and a better time doing all the things that it’s about. Its worth all the shit gigs when you finally have the record in your hands. The way it’s all come together, the way it looks feels and sounds, I couldn’t have asked for any better, and couldn’t have asked for a better group of people than those who have been working on it. It’s pretty special man.”
