Kill The Precedent Interviewed In Sacramento

Sacramento, CA-based electro-thrash metal collective KILL THE PRECEDENT have released their new EP, Some Version of the Truth, via minus HEAD Records. Available for purchase via Bandcamp and Amazon.

Vocalist Twig the Exfoliator states, “We took our time with this one, and it’s probably one of the first tracks we wrote in which each member had a say, including some members who are no longer with us. ‘Irrational Anthem’ stems from a five second drum loop that we came up with a few years ago, and over time we just kept adding music and lyrics as they came to us. Art began to imitate life (or vice versa), because as we continued to write the song, it seemed the people in which the song was about came to act more irrational in their life decisions. We picked up on that along the way and wrote about it every chance we got, and I believe it shows in our lyrics. It’s a song for them. It’s their anthem.”

KILL THE PRECEDENT – featuring 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 Some Version of the Truth.

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.

Ultimately, Some Version of the Truth stands out as smoldering, sizzling, and scorching proof that rock music can still surprise in 2017.
