This just in: Listen to Deaf Wish’s “They Know,” the second offering from the band’s forthcoming album, Pain as premiered by Noisey this morning.
Pain will be available on CD/ LP/DL worldwide August 7th on Sub Pop. The album was recorded & produced by the band at Reservoir, Victoria, mixed by Mikey Young and mastered by April Golden at Golden Mastering. Pain is the follow up to their label debut, the 4-song St. Vincent’s 7” single, released last October.
Noisey had this to say of the band and “They Know”: “From the start, the foursome (consisting of bassist Nick Pratt, drummer Daniel Twomey and guitarists Sarah Hardiman and Jensen Tjhung) have shared a basic philosophy; keep it loud but simple. Their live performance bleeds with genuine charisma. It’s a tenacious and aggressive approach to creating music that has an almost disdain for predictability and code…“They Know” taken from the album clocks in at just under a minute-and-a-half but is indicative of the Deaf Wish spirit. Two guitars play at max volume, a drum sets getting a trouncing while Hardiman effortlessly coos, “What do they know (see premiere June 29th).)?”
Pain is now available for preorder from Sub Pop Mega Mart, iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp. LP preorders from megamart.subpop.com will receive the limited Loser edition on clear, black marbled vinyl (while supplies last). There will also be a new T-shirt design, available individually and as part of a bundle with purchase of the new record.
