Los Angeles based industrial band 3TEETH have announced the release of their highly-anticipated, second full-length album, <shutdown.exe>, on May 19th via OMF Records. Today, the band revealed the album title, release date, artwork and track listing for the upcoming record.
3TEETH’s <shutdown.exe>, the long-awaited follow-up to their self-titled, 2014 album, was self-produced by the band, mixed by Sean Beavan known for his work with Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, A Perfect Circle and mastered by Howie Wienberg who is know for his work with 90’s giants like Deftones, Nirvana, Pantera, Smashing Pumpkins, and Soundgarden. The album features 13 songs that push their sound into the classic industrial music scene that thrived in the late 80’s and 90’s.
Frontman Alexis Mincolla spoke about the concept behind their new record, "The album centers around the idea of shutting down consensus reality tunnels, which is a way to describe the generally agreed-upon perspectives of what is considered real."
Formed in 2013 in Los Angeles, 3TEETH is a transgressive artistic collaborative consisting of Alexis Mincolla (vocals), Xavier Swafford (keys), Andrew Means (drums) and Chase Brawner (guitars). Inspired by the early 90’s industrial scene and acts like Ministry and Nine Inch Nails, the four-piece boasts a unique amalgam of aggressive sound and compelling visual art that, combined with their cynical humor and provocative propaganda, ultimately ask fans to join their assault on consensus based reality.
Following their 2016 US tour supporting the legendary TOOL, 3TEETH is riding a wave of momentum and anticipation leading up to the release of <shutdown.exe>.
