TEETH are one of heavy music’s most exciting and exhilarating new bands. That’s a stone-cold fact. Need proof? Just have a listen to their new track.
That track is called “Hate Me” and is everything that is brilliant about chaotic hardcore. With ferocious drums, stabbing riffs, guttural breakdowns and an absolute banshee call of a vocal display, it is a bile-drenched and boisterous piece of noise that will grip your throat, squeeze and smile with glee at your pain.
The band had this to say about it:
“‘Hate Me’ is about watching the people around you – whether it’s your peers, family/loved ones, colleagues – self-destruct over petulant nonsense. Watching a marriage or friendship crumble over disagreements when both parties are too blinded by our inherent attraction to turmoil to see the pettiness of it all. It’s about how we – as humans – are so viscerally unwilling to budge in our cemented beliefs and beholden to our egos that we’d rather just let the house burn down to prove our point. I THINK THERE’S FIRE IN THESE WALLS.”
The track is set to appear on the TEETH’s upcoming debut EP A Biblical Worship Of Violence, which will be released digitally on May 5th and on physically on July 21st via Nuclear Blast.
The band had this to say about what the EP represents for them:
“A Biblical Worship Of Violence is our ode to the ache of change – a snapshot of a moment in time where we were all going through dark shifts in our personal lives that forced us to see life through the lens of true pain and discomfort. We knew we needed to create something so visceral and honest to articulate what we’d been going through while also giving us the opportunity to speak on the state of this world. Division, compulsion – an intrinsic gravitational pull toward cruelty and brutality. ABWOV is a commentary on human beings darkest, most volatile conventions.“
