Oozing Wound ‘Whatever Forever’ LP (Thrill Jockey)

Oozing Wound will return this Fall with another obliterating platter of head shredding metal, Whatever Forever, due out October 14th on Thrill Jockey. Guitarist-singer Zack Weil lays down the skinny:

“…we went back to the plant and reformulated this batch of ooze to be so potent that it had to be spread over three (3?!) sides of vinyl. You want fast shit? We got it! You want slow shit? We got it! You want weird shit? Fuck yeah, you do. The same people made it, but we all got BETTER at it this time, not worse. In the past we’ve explored what it means to be a band in the twenty-tennys (Retrash), and how life is a pointless pummeling from the pugilist known as existence (Earth Suck). Now we bring you Whatever Forever, a culmination of nihilism, yeah-dude radicalness of the early 90s, and the belief that taking anything too seriously is a guarantee it’ll suck.”

Don’t sleep on this doozy, as limited editions of Whatever Forever will also come with a comic book from artist Sam Nigrosh, whose ridiculously rad drawings can be seen on the album’s cover above. Oozing Wound will also hit the road this coming October, and you can check out all the upcoming dates below.
