Vinyl only release, 12 tracks, includes download code  Limited to 600 copies only  Melbourne, Australia punk-noise-rock four piece, formed 2012  3rd album, prev: Aloha (Jan ’13) Solid Mates (Sept ’13) on Homeless Third album for Melbourne’s CUNTZ. With Alex Macfarlane (Boomgates, Constant Mongrel, The Stevens) behind the desk again, CUNTZ offer an even more bitter pill to swallow this time around in ‘Force The Zone’. Always polarising critics, mainly due to the band’s chosen moniker, those that didn’t get the sardonic humour present missed out on fully enjoying Aloha and Solid Mates, although one commenter nailed it when stating “…the informed listener can choose to either get it or be put off by the irreverence. Cuntz are dedicated to the hoon, and dedicated to supporting each other in their own respective hoons, and they don’t give a fuck about what anyone thinks about that.” CUNTZ are about to embark on another U.S tour, commencing September 2015 and includes an appearance at Gonerfest 12 in Memphis, alongside Ty Rex, Nobunny, Hank Wood, Quintron and Sonny Vincent. Tour dates: "... these new Australian bands just continue to kick asses and take names. 'Aloha' kicks off with a massive headache, coming off like Flipper and Venom P. Stinger in a head-on collision. Thank god for them." - RK (Terminal-Boredom) “… all subtleties removed resulting in a sound as unwavering as a drunk’s visions on the last bus home.” – LG (MRR) "has some of the Birthday Party's ghastly vibe and a lot of sonic sludge and aggressively abrasive attitude borrowed from the 80s heyday of the pigfuck movement." (Chicago Reader) "It's delightfully maddening and miserable. Imagine an Australian Pissed Jeans, maybe, or these guys' '80s/'90s predecessors Venom P. Stinger (going back further, the Sick Things) on a hard drug binge. Get it if you like your rock ugly and unhappy, but with a sardonic sense of humor." (Aquarius Records) Cuntz are Ben Mackie (vocals), Lewis Hodgson (guitar), Dom Mercuri (bass) and Mike Ward (drums)
