DUMB WAITER + MetalSucks

“This is a band that isn’t pushing the envelope so much as they’re shoving it right over the side of a goddamn cliff. If you’re tired of the same old same old, then Dumb Waiter absolutely MUST be on your radar.”
— MetalSucks

Check out the video for “WNDW”, via MetalSucks, here.

Formed in 2012 in Richmond, VA, Dumb Waiter was founded by Nick Crider and Nathaniel Roseberry. As Nick explains it, the band’s formation came out of humorous necessity: “Back then, I was the booking agent at non-profit venue space and I had booked Lightning Bolt and wanted to be a complete brat and play the show as well. So I asked Nathaniel to start a noise power violence band. After a few practices, Nath brought in more players (Tristan Brennis and Keith Paul) and Dumb Waiter was formed.” Since then, the band has mutated to what could be described as avant-garde jazz rock, looking to move away from being pigeonholed into the “mathrock” label that they generally don’t relate to.

Tsk will be available digitally, on limited edition cassette, and limited edition vinyl (250 copies on solid mint with black splatter) May 15th. Preorder, here.
