Eddy Current Suppression Ring are back, ready first LP in 10 years (listen to “Our Quiet Whisper”)
Australian punk greats Eddy Current Suppression Ring went dark after 2009’s terrific Rush to Relax (which didn’t get a US release till 2010), with Mikey Young off to start 23 other bands (Total Control among them) and a career as a very in-demand mastering engineer. A few singles were released this decade but, for the most part, nothing and if you’ve been wondering whether they’d ever make a record well, All in Good Time. That’s the title of their new album which is out on Castle Face on December 13! They’ve released a single from the album — the simmering “Our Quiet Whisper,” which like its title, goes for the low-key approach rather than hitting you over the head. “Out quiet whisper has become a chant,” sings Brendan Huntley, as a head full of steam bubbles just below the surface.
Details are hazy but let’s hope they’re back for real, and then maybe they’ll tour? Stay tuned.
