ANIMAL SHITHOUSE ANNOUNCE ‘WHO TAUGHT YOU TO HATE?’ EP TO BE RELEASED DECEMBER 1ST VIA LOCKJAW RECORDS10th October 2023
Despite hailing from the very Royal and very leafy town of Tunbridge Wells in Kent, visceral young punks Animal Shithouse are at opposed odds to the area’s natural beauty. Formed in August of 2021, the sound of Animal Shithouse is a seething, intense barrage of spikey and jagged post-punk ferocity. Having spent the last two years blowing people’s heads off with their sharp sound, the quartet has barely scratched the surface of their cutting sound.
Finding inspiration in the likes of Soft Play and Ladybird from their hometown, alongside alternative legends like Rage Against the Machine and the Sex Pistols, they mesh the old the traditional, and the innovative to deliver a gut punch in their forthcoming EP ‘Who Taught You To Hate?’, due for release December 1st via Lockjaw Records.
Culled from the EP, new single ‘CK’ is a story of self-actualization whilst constantly regressing and battling against one’s own urges, ‘CK’ merges all that defined early Animal Shithouse tracks – grit, intensity, and black humor now framed through progression into darker electronic arrangements and enraged emotional turmoil.
Recorded late into the night, CK was an electric process in its construction, combining all members’ intentions to push post-punk into further experimentation. Breakbeats paired with the snarl of trad punk and vocal delivery that was recorded during a very real and raw struggle with self-hatred, substance abuse, and hopelessness. This is Animal Shithouse at its rawest, darker, more intense, more inescapable.
Animal Shithouse is here to deliver nothing but brutal and filthy punk tunes, and once you’ve heard them, you’ll struggle to forget them.
We hope you’re ready, the force of this four-piece will leave you in pieces.
