  • ITR189 - LP

In The Red is proud to announce the vinyl (re)issue of The Spits' latest (and fourth) self-titled full-length LP. Originally released by the band late last year on their own Thriftstore Records, the album carries on in the psychedelic skate-punk band's grand tradition of anarchy, chaos, stupidity and destruction-all delivered with an artisan's skill that proves these guys are the real deal. This is the precursor to the brand new Spits album, currently in the works, that will be out on In The Red later this year. The Spits show no sign of slowing down with their latest effort, mixing equal parts Devo and Misfits into an aurally addictive, synth-inflected stew. Describing the music they play as "punk for the people," these prophets of the proletariat have a message for the masses: The Spits are the soundtrack to the apocalypse. The band has never shied away from esoteric subject matter. Previous records have contained themes of escaped Nazi war criminals, nuclear winters, commie spies and terrorist attacks, coupled with back alley booze-fests, brainbruising bong rips, skateboards and fisticuffs. With songs about constable evasion ("Police"), Huxley-esque visions of metropolitan horror ("Eyesore City") and alien abduction ("Alienize"), The Spits' fourth should prove to be just as desperately disparate and sonically sordid as previous salvos. It's their strongest to date, showcasing a band that is only beginning to approach the zenith of its power, as the world dips entropically past its own, toward obliteration. Buy the record, take the ride. ? Reissue of Seattle-based punk band's fourth album makes it widely available for the first time ?
