Cosmic punks WACO are pleased to announce their return with their forthcoming new EP Deathless set for release through Gallows’ label Venn Records on 2nd June 2017.
To celebrate the news the band have revealed the video for new single Mother Mercy which you can watch below!
WACO will hit the road in May alongside fellow punks Brawlers and Bad Sign for a short run of UK dates that ahve just been announced (details below).
The quartet, hailing from the weirder nooks of the UK (North Yorkshire, Jersey and Coventry), came together through their animalistic compulsion to make noise and their shared goal to brainwash the masses with their relentless optimism.
Speaking about the new EP, the band commented: ‘Deathless is a record about absolution in life and love.
‘It’s a meditation on strange lands and experiences, but familiar emotions. We feel it’s important to come up for air once in a while and re-examine this beautiful, complex life.’
The much anticipated follow-up to last year’s Uprise, the new record sees the London quartet boldly meld ‘70s rock influences with punk, psych and even gospel influences across the five tracks, perfectly framing front man Jak Hutchcraft’s raw, Northern storytelling and packed full of grit and honesty.
Following a big year in 2016 supporting Juliette Lewis & The Licks on a tour of Europe, their own headline UK tour and bringing pandemonium to Reading Festival and 2000 Trees, they show no signs of slowing as they plough through another UK headline tour this Spring, collecting heads and hearts wherever they play.
Their last release, double A-side 7″ single Wrangler, was released through Banquet Records and received BBC Radio 1 play from Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Phil Taggart and on Dan P Carter’s Rock Show.
Deathless is released 2nd June 2017 via Venn Records
