Hello you. I am extremely proud and excited to officially announce the launch of a brand new Howlround release, the VOLT FACE EP which is being launched on October 2nd at 0800 BST. It is perhaps the fiercest statement yet from everyone’s favourite reel to reel tape loop quintet.
Howlround soundtracks the sh**show known as 2020 with 4 blistering reel to reel tape malfunctions. The machines run riot on this visceral (and then some) 7″ single mastered by Zyklus + cut by Soundhog @plastidisc. Presented in an 8 page booklet of broken billboards & urban detritus photographed by Robin the Fog around an increasingly desolate capital. 30 copies only available from Buried Treasure, 0800 BST on #BandcampFriday 2nd Oct.
To whet your appetite, here’s a quick clip from the original sessions that went semi-viral on Instagram a few weeks back…
A relentless and abrasive loop of foreboding and malign intent… THE soundtrack to 2020 .Super heavy, super limited. DO NOT SLEEP on this one!
All very exciting and I’m looking forward to unveiling these new tracks, even if they might be slightly heavy going for 8am on a Friday. My only other slight concern is that this release might just have broken ace cutting engineer Ben Soundhog:
