Portland’s CLITERATI and Oakland’s VIOLATION WOUND have united to unleash a mutinous, ten-track split 12″ later this month.
Captured at Earhammer Studios by Greg Wilkinson (Autopsy, Necrot, Deathgrave), and mastered at Mammoth Sound by Dan Randall (Ghoul, Fucked Up), the split features cover art by VIOLATION WOUND vocalist/guitarist Chris Reifert (Autopsy, Abscess) and will see release on vinyl and digital formats via Tankcrimes July 27th with preorders to be unveiled in the coming days.
Issues CLITERATI’s Ami Lawless of the union, “Getting to do a split with VIOLATION WOUND is a high point for our band! The track you all get to preview has lyrics that reflect the anger and frustration many of us are experiencing right now. If you walk away with just one message from this split, hopefully it’s that we are all in this together: queer, straight, POC or white, things can and will change when we join forces and tear down the system of hate & oppression”.
Adds Reifert, “We here at VIOLATION WOUND headquarters are fired up, stoked, and foaming at the mouth about this here snazzy split with CLITERATI. Listen if you want to have your brain melted into liquid magma while you get your ass handed to you.”
