New Florida Man Album "Tropical Depression" Out May 3rd. New Single and Pre-Orders Available Now
The sophomore full-length album from Charleston, South Carolina noise-punk agitators, Florida Man, Tropical Depression, will be released on May 3rd. Today, we’re excited to team up with Decibel Magazine to premiere the album's explosive first single "Brain Cell." Pre-orders for the album on limited edition picture disc and vinyl are available now here and all pre-orders include an instant download of “Brain Cell.” The first 100 pre-orders also include a Florida Man orange stress ball.>Recorded by Zac Thomas (Kylesa, Black Tusk), Tropical Depression is a tangle of pummeling guitars and howled vocals that shows just how effectively Florida Man filters the spirits of the most legendary noise rock and post-hardcore scenes. There's San Diego’s angular attack (Hot Snakes, No Knife), Seattle’s sheer power (Botch, These Arms Are Snakes), Chicago’s sonic depravity (The Jesus Lizard, Shellac), and DC’s unbridled creativity (Fugazi, Faraquet) -- all blended with the band's unique brand of sweat-soaked southern grime and a dose of hardcore aggression courtesy of vocalist Jim O'Connor's gravel-throated vocals. "Brain Cell" opens the album and is a perfect introduction to Florida Man's chaotic-yet-satisfying heaviness.
