Bombed Out and artist news
Posted: 4th April 2012
We're very proud to announce we'll be releasing the debut album from Sheffield-based post-punks Wooderson this summer.
The band have been around for a few years now and have released a demo, an EP and a brilliant split 7" with Ox Scapula in that time. Now they've put together a 9 track album, titled Let The Man Speak, and it's utterly floored us (and, incidentally, Art For Blind Records who will once again be our collaborators on this).
So what do they sound like? It seems almost passé to mention Fugazi when referring to Wooderson these days but for once the reference is fully justified. Throw in a little Mission of Burma and Faraquet and you should definitely have a flavour of what this band are about. It's worth pointing out though that, as with all the best bands, Wooderson have taken those influences and still come up with a sound which is completely their own.
As a taster for the album you can download a "pay what you like" digital single right now. Head on over to the Wooderson bandcamp page and grab the track "Mint Condition" along with the rather sublime b-side, "Blowhard". We think you'll rather enjoy them.
A full band page and more info will be up on this here website soon.
