New Barren Womb Album "Nique Everything" Out November 27th. New Song Streaming At Brooklynvegan
The Norwegian noise rock duo Barren Womb will release their second, and arguably most defining album to date, Nique Everything on November 27th! Listen to the premiere of the new song, "You can’t fire me, because I quit" at Brooklynvegan and pre-order Nique Everything on limited edition vinyl and picture disc at the Spartan store and Bandcamp. All pre-orders include an instant download of "You can't fire me, because I quit."
Since 2011, Barren Womb have been raising both eyebrows and hell with their nasty swill of Punk 'n' Roll and Blackened Country Noise. The follow-up to 2014's critically-acclaimed debut LP, The sun’s not yellow, it’s chicken, Nique Everything, sees the band further exploring soundscapes, instrumentation, and themes more commonly found in Country/Americana than in Noise Rock -- yet it still retains every ounce of energy and conviction the duo has been known for in the past.
Lyrically, the band is as bleak as ever, but there has been a shift of focus: instead of pointing fingers at the world in general, this time around they deal mostly with their own demons and shortcomings. Alienation, fear of change, escapism and the mundanity of everyday life are some of the major themes running throughout the record.
Nique Everything was recorded live and mixed by Håkon Gebhardt (ex-Motorpsycho, Ida Jenshus, Home Groan) at Das Boot Studio in Trondheim, Norway and mastered by Alan Douches (Converge, Japandroids, Young Widows) at West West Side Music. Stay tuned for more info, more new music, and much more!
