Seven maniacs from Sacramento, CA-Twig the Exfoliator [vocals], The Ugly American [vocals], Tapeworm [guitar, electronics], Catastrofiend [guitar, visuals], Jimmy Hazard [guitar], Jon the Jew [bass], and Sgt. Pepper [drums]-raze and shred expectations with a singular style of crossover gonzo gutter thrash fueled by reckless punk abandon on their upcoming EP, Some Version of the Truth, out February 24, 2017 via minus HEAD Records. iTunes pre-orders will be available soon, with Bandcamp and Amazon pre-orders live now.
“So much music is missing a sense of urgency,” exclaims Twig the Exfoliator. “We want to bring that danger back.”
Since their formation and the release of 2013’s Dialogues with the Dead, the band has stirred up a furious local following and national fervor. They’ve received acclaim from press and fans alike and their live shows have become the stuff of legend, with the band often appearing in costumes and treating their performances like a theatrical party. One night will be priests versus boy scouts, while the next is cops and robbers or even a zombie beach party!
In late 2016, the KILL THE PRECEDENT entered Pus Caverns in Sacramento, CA with producer Joe Johnston. They quickly cut the Some Version of the Truth‘s seven anthems, composing the singles “Two Way Mirrors” and “Watch What You Think” in the studio.
Some Version of the Truth Track Listing:
1) Two Way Mirrors
2) Lesser of Two Evils
3) Down North
