Portland degenerates Drunk Dad issued Ripper Killer earlier in the year. We debuted the album on Invisible Oranges, impressed by the way it respun grunge and noise rock more convincingly than the post-whatevers that followed the first wave:

The nosiest and the most abrasive of the Northwest seep into their sound. "Fuck in Garbage" squirms like the Melvins and has a Flipper-y antagonism. The title track is Nirvana augmented by old Dwarves and might be one of the few songs created in his spirit that Cobain would've enjoyed. But Drunk Dad are their own thing, far more electric than imitators could ever hope to be.
Ripper Killer big, loud, and the right record for eating up the remainder of your work day. You can stream the Xeroxed Birds-bedecked album below.

Drunk Dad will also be jumping into the tour van at the end of the month. They'll get the caravan going with fellow Portlanders Honduran and the ultra-heavy hardcore they showcased on last year's Street Eagles. The long excursion will take both bands through Los Angeles, Austin, and Chicago. On September 19, they'll hit Brooklyn's The Gutter with Heavy Medical and Law$Uits, letting you roll rocks to noise rock.

All of the dates along with the Ripper Killer and Honduran streams appear below.
