"Boston-based punk/noise rock band Aneurysm have announced the upcoming release of their raw and rampaging debut album 'Awareness'... The Big Takeover is supremely psyched to host the premiere of 'Newport,' a sludgy, yet emotionally spiked cut..."
–The Big Takeover
Aneurysm have unveiled new track "Newport" today via The Big Takeover.
Stream it, here:
"Newport" appears on debut full-length Awareness, out February 1st. Recorded at GodCity Studio in Salem, MA, by Chris Johnson (bassist of Deafheaven and Doomriders), Awareness is ten tracks' worth of swaggering, melodic, noise-rock that charges forward through the same sewers as Nirvana, Unsane, and Turbonegro.
Burly drums and distorted bass pound out frantic punk rock rhythms, as dual guitars weave ragged blankets of noisy melody. Vocalist Michael McGee (who spent much of the '00s fronting noise-core blasters the_Network) snarls, screams and croons, with lyrics that are raw and poetic – world-weary reflections on sex, drugs, cops, death, and rock n' roll.
Awareness was mastered by Will Killingsworth (The Body, Magrudergrind). The artwork and layout were created by Mark McCoy,whose work has graced the covers of albums by Pig Destroyer and Full of Hell.
The album's release is a joint effort between Tor Johnson Records (vinyl), Constant Disappointment Records (vinyl and CD), and Suspended Soul Records (cassette).
