Jesse Mowery (In Wolves' Clothing) is my brother, and enthusiastic/supportive Chris Livingstone (Letterbombs) has released a few things on Tomb Tree so when asked if I wanted to release this thing it was a no-fuck-brainer. With the split 12" set to release in full digitally and physically on Saturday August 20th, 2022 I figured I'd give ya'll a sneak peak at this glorious split /100. Finland's LETTERBOMBS bring their five fastest and finest tracks yet, with Richmond, Virginia's IN WOLVES' CLOTHING clocking in at a minute longer despite having two less tracks, but no less passion. Take a jam and check back in at Zegema Beach Records and Dingleberry Records at 9am PST / 11am CST / 12pm EST on Aug. 20th!!!
This collection of songs are the band's crowning achievement up to this point, and contain a flow, consistency, and intensity that leave me even more satisfied that when I first heard their debut. Since that time they released a ton of material, but this...it's like 33rpm Raein played at 45rpm (wait...is that just emo-violence?) thanks to the off-kilter rhythms, dynamic shifts, and multiple screamers. "Folie à Deux" is a bit of an anomaly though, as it is longer in length, much more restrained, groovy, and includes their best singing so far. They're all great jams but I think the closer "Burnt Toast" is my favourite, as those lone guitar notes at the climax really submerge the listener.
