Gum Takes Tooth's 'Arrow' is released today

Today see the release of Gum Takes Tooth's new album 'Arrow'

"A totally modern sound with a vintage sense of disconnectedness from anything else." The Wire
"Their most emphatic statement to date." Loud and Quiet
"The desolation party 2019 deserves." Buzz
"Groove-laden menace seamlessly weaving electronic blasts with organic bluster." The Quietus
"Album of the week." Normans Records

Forging their own distinct geometric trajectory through their two previously released albums, Gum Takes Tooth have mapped out a landscape in which the influences of Coil, Warp Records, The Knife and Lightning Bolt were alchemically transformed into an innovative and pulverising onslaught which can be heard with greatest effect on this new album 'Arrow' which is released today in all good record shops.

The band have  several shows coming up including a massive album launch party at the Electrowerkz tonight with guests Nick Void, Sex Swing, Cold Nose and Michael, plus DJ's from Tomaga, Teeth of the Sea, Flowers Must Die, Luminous Bodies and Rocket:
