Last week, the Florida heavy noise rockers WRONG graced listeners with a video for “Mucilage”, the third single from their upcoming self-titled debut album. Set to be released through none other than Relapse Records, located just outside of Philadelphia, the album will be available for purchase on April 29th!
Composed of vocalist/guitarist Eric Hernandez, drummer Brian Hernandez, guitarist Ryan Haft, and bassist Andres Ascanio, WRONG formed in 2014 and released their Stop Giving EP shortly after, establishing their broodingly brutish sound early on.
The single, which has equal parts influence from noise rock greats Unsane and alternative metal titans Helmet, culminates into something that sounds like a sludgier, pissed off, and marginally more misanthropic Clutch. The video is a mash-up of footage depicting the devastating power of the atomic bombs, during and after detonation, imagery which is fittingly paired with the swirling chaos of noise that looms over the song. It’s a torturous two-minute trudge through a tar pit full of nuclear waste; you can practically hear a Geiger counter going ballistic in the background.
Check it out below!
The other two singles, “Turn In” and “Boil”, have rolled out for your streaming pleasure on Noisey and Metal Sucks, respectively, since the band announced the self-titled album’s release date back on March 1st. The album is up for preorder on Relapse Record’s website, and you can listen to and get the current singles as well as their Stop Giving EP, on their Bandcamp!
Lastly, WRONG announced that they’ll be embarking on a country-wide tour from June 5th to July 3rd in support of the album. If you’re interested in seeing them, come out to one of the shows listed below!
