Bonacons of Doom's 'Signs' is released today

“Beckoning the aliens to beam down and join us.” The Quietus

“Simply divine.” Sleeping Shaman

“Bonnacons of Doom are a hard band to beat.” Clash

This is the sign you have been waiting for. Echoes And Dust

Today sees the release of Bonnacons of Doom's new album 'Signs'

There are three gatefold sleeve vinyl versions of 'Signs' available. A very special numbered Dinked version that has unique sleeve art, a cutout and keep 'Doom' mask and is pressed on exclusive Silver vinyl:


You can also pick-up a ltd edition Yellow vinyl via the Bandcamp link and a ltd edition Frosted Clear vinyl via all good record shops:



Building on the intimidating intensity of Bonnacons Of Doom’s self-titled debut, 'Signs' offers a sonic response to the tension between the urge to pursue continuity with our past and to adapt to our changing present. Hypnotic grooves and the monomaniacal intensity of the riff are fractured by digital interplay, electronics and the incantatory vocals of ceremonial leader Kate Smith, coalescing into a metaphysical force which stands defiant of easy categorisation. 

Within these otherworldly manifestations on 'Signs' lurks solace in a place where the transcendent powers of heavy amplification, electronic sonic explorations and forces darker and more unknowable can coalesce to cathartic and redeeming effect. 

See the band live at their home town show, with more dates TBA:

11 November / Liverpool / Quarry


20 Oct 2023

Yoke's S/T debut album is released today

Today sees the release of Yoke's ferocious debut album – a five-song, 35-minute S/T LP that absolutely rips.

Yoke is guitarist Daniel Foggin (Smote), his brother Tommy Foggin on vocals and drums and Mark Brown (also from Smote).

The album is ltd to 200 copies and can only be bought via Bandcamp or from the band's merch table at one of their up-and-coming shows – each copy comes with a hand numbered A4 insert:

Buy Ltd LP


From the deceptively slowburn intro of torture-toned opener ‘Coil’ to the Neanderthal-rhythmed blowout of parting shot ‘Me-Time’, Yoke is a melted mass of metal, punk, noise and psych whose musical ethos strips things down as much as possible but whose result befouls all the oxygen in the room. 

Yoke is assuredly a different beast from Smote, but there’s a common thread in the proverbial power of the riff and bludgeoning repetition. Pulling out Stooges-like mean acid vibes, rhythm's you can groove to and at their most uptempo, the band lock into full psychedelic speed freak mode.

This is one album to scorch your ears to if you’ve thrilled with anything with stupidly loud amplifiers and feedback front and centre.

Experience Yoke's feral-noise live at one of these shows:

26 October / London / Moor Beer Vaults (supporting Bonnacons Of Doom)
05 Nov / Newcastle / Tyne Bar

"A true bridge between old and new." Echoes And Dust


Goat's latest album 'Medicine' is released today!!

The album is available in several gatefold vinyl versions as well as a ltd edition CD. All good UK record shops will also have 'Bohemica' vinyl as well as a 'Black Trip' vinyl version.

Teeth Of The Sea's new album 'Hive' is released today

"Their most dynamic and exciting record to date." The Quietus

"Teeth of the Sea are back and better than ever." 5/5 Prog Mind

"Hive is an impressively adventurous record." Louder Than War

"Teeth of the Sea have outdone themselves with this release, perhaps their strongest release thus far." The Sleeping Shaman

Teeth Of The Sea's new album Hive is released today on LP/CD/DL.

You can buy a ltd Bandcamp exclusive LP on Yellow vinyl, and as today is Bandcamp Friday, there is no better time to support the band and label:


You can buy an exclusive, numbered 'Dinked' edition on Neon Pink vinyl that also includes an A2 poster of exclusive art and sew on patch via any of these stores who have copies left:


And finally there is a ltd edition Blue vinyl variant for all shops.
All LPs come with colour-coded obi strips...so collect the set!

SADLY...we have just been informed that there has been a distribution error and the Dinked vinyl versions won't hit the shops until next Friday now, so the 13th. We are gutted!!


Unfettered by genre distinctions or expectations, the only limits of Teeth Of The Sea - the trio comprising Sam Barton, Mike Bourne and Jimmy Martin - are those of its imagination. It therefore follows that inspiration flowed into 'Hive' from all dimensions, with the band’s sphere of influence - the science fiction, trash culture and cinematic atmospherics by which they’ve fuelled their mission thus far - expanding to take in everything from Italo-disco to minimal techno, from dubbed-out studio madness to their most brazen forays thus far into pop songwriting.

'Hive' is an alchemical headspace where monochrome animates into vivid colour. It may not be a carefully ordered insectoid militia set to overthrow society, but it’s a transmission which transcends anything Teeth Of The Sea have thus far offered in their time on Earth.

Step inside 'Hive', if you dare.
