“Exit International really do make for a dazzling departure from rock orthodoxy.”- The Fly
“Dirty, fuzzed up, disgustingly deranged bass fuelled brilliance from three lads you’d only trust around your eardrums.”Jen Long, BBC INTRODUCING.
“Black Junk sounds just as good while you’re thumping the hell out of your mortal enemies with a piece of plumbing, as it does during those tender moments when Pippa comes over to slather you up with motor oil.” Jason Pettigrew, ALTERNATIVE PRESS.
“ Exit International have created something truly great” Kerrang
“The three piece smash out tunes into oblivion with rip-roaring ferocity “- Rock Sound
Returning from 2010’s critically acclaimed ‘Sex W/ Strangers’ E.P, Exit_International’s Fudge Wilson (bass / vocals), Adam Thomas (drums / percussion) and Scott Lee Andrews (vocals / bass) prepare to unleash their debut full length – ‘Black Junk’. The band openly promise their ‘Sex W/ Strangers’ E.P was “just a taste of the embryonic promise of things to come!”
The band are GIVING AWAY a free track for download taken from the album, ‘Voices‘
From the 48 second blast of ‘Blindfolds’ to the brooding, creepy expanse of ‘King Of The Junkies’ Black Junk is best described as rabid off-kilter filthy punk rock – think the Pixies combined with Motorhead, the sonics of Girls Against Boys and the nerve-splitting post-hardcore volatility of The Blood Brothers. Opener, ‘Glory Horn’ was originally released as a split-single to celebrate a UK tour with Antlered Man quickly becoming a crowd favourite, whilst ‘Bowie’s Ghost’, the band’s first video displays E_I’s uncanny knack for combining the short-sharp-shock treatment with their unmistakable visceral brand.
