(PR) Feral Children's ferocious live performances have ravaged Seattle, and most recently, lucky throngs of SXSW-goers witnessed them wreak havoc at multiple showcases. They've received endorsements and major airplay from Seattle's influential KEXP and garnered enthusiastic praise from the local press. Their debut LP, SECOND TO THE LAST FRONTIER, will be released July 8 on Sarathan Records.
Described by Seattle's "The Stranger" as "convulsive, percussive, skuzzed-out rock, as primal as a caveman fertility ritual," Feral Children remain true to their moniker over the album's 12 tracks. Self-released locally in 2007, the fivesome's full-length was produced by Scott Colburn (Animal Collective, Arcade Fire), who expertly captured the band's raw sonic outbursts.
Kicking off with the rollicking "Spy/Glass House," the album launches into a frenzy almost right off the bat as a spiky guitar riff collides with vocalist/percussionist Jeff Keenan's howling melodies. The song bursts at the seams with an eerie tension that pervades the entire record. - Click here to hear/download "Spy/Glass House":
