Norwich alt/noise-rock band Eat Your Own Head are proud to announce details of their debut album Neck-Deep In The Blythset for release on 20th May 2022 via Drongo Records.
The forthcoming debut was recorded by Tom Peters (Alpha Male Tea Party, Bicruious, The Hyena Kill) at Trapdoor Studios and mastered by Katie Tavini (Los Bitchos, Arlo Parks, Zuzu).
Heralding the album news, the band are streaming lead single ‘Bullets’ in full—a hefty slab of chunky, distorted riffs threaded with snaking, math-rock influenced lead guitar lines and guttural growls—which is released on all good digital service providers on 22nd February 2022.
The first release from the forthcoming debut album later this year, ‘Bullets’ is 160 seconds of unrelenting power and energy. Commenting on the track, the band said: “Lyrically the track reminisces on a playful youth tinted with the difficulties of maintaining human connection. The lyrics ‘Time out, play dead. I can’t hold on to my old friends.’ are a reflection on solitary tendencies.”
Drawn together by a collective yearning to play extremely loud music (as all the best heavy bands are) Eat Your Own Head present an enticing blend of rich, heavy alt-rock that sidesteps some of the genres more obvious pitfalls and replaces them instead with muscular vocals, hooks, and a technical and unpredictable musicality that evokes comparisons to early Marmozets, Blacklisters, Blakfish, and &U&I.
Taking inspiration from everything from Nirvana to Black Midi, the band formed in 2019 and were straight out of the blocks with the Hank EP in 2020, quickly landing themselves notable accolades from BBC 6music, The Line of Best Fit, Louder Than War, and Amazing Radio.
The band have built a strong live reputation from the word go and have since been on to play all over the UK including support slots with more established acts such as The Physics House Band, St. Pierre Snake Invasion, Sugar Horse, The Guru Guru and many more.
