New EP for Turbogeist + dates with Cancer Bats
LONDON-BASED rockers, Turbogeist, will release their ‘Ancient Secrets’ EP on January 14th 2012 via Spinefarm Records.
Co-produced by the band & Chris Sheldon (who has previously worked with Pixies, Radiohead & Foo Fighters, amongst others), ‘Ancient Secrets’ was recorded at Livingston Studios in North London, and will be available as a digital download plus a numbered, coloured vinyl 10”.
Inspired in part by Apocalyptic times, ‘Ancient Secrets’ includes five ripping tracks, with man’s stuttering evolution at the core of the action; the featured songs include ‘Mermaid’s Revenge’ (about our ill-fated attempts to conquer nature), for which a video has just been filmed, and ‘Zero Friends’ (society’s slow death by social networking).
Inspired by ’70’s era punk-rock and ’80s hardcore, and taking cues from The Replacements, The Damned and The Misfits, Turbogeist – Jimmy, Luis, James & Josh – are out to carve their own path, melding their influences (including a deep love of comic books) into an amalgam of twisted sci-fi laden punk rock exploding with raw aggression & attitude.
Guitarist / vocalist Luis adds…
“Being a youth in the 90′s with Brit pop, Grunge, Hip hop and great rock bands emerging on the radio and music television we were spoiled for choice. Nowadays everything seems too polished. However if you look beyond the void of Mercury Awards and Coldplay b-sides there are great underground scenes/ bands emerging.”
Turbogeist will be guesting with Cancer Bats on three of their UK dates in December:-
08th – Fibbers, York
13th – Sugarmill, Stoke
18th – O2 Academy, Liverpool
