Chat Pile’s debut LP ‘God’s Country’ nears, 2nd NYC release show with Scarcity added
Oklahoma City sludgy, noisy post-hardcore band Chat Pile have been channelling the sounds of bands like the Melvins, Unsane, and The Jesus Lizard across two EPs and a split with Portrayal of Guilt, and now they're set to release their anticipated debut album God's Country next week (7/29) via The Flenser (pre-order). Two songs from the album are out now, and you can hear both below.
Chat Pile are playing a hometown album release show the day the album comes out, and they're also set to make their NYC debut this fall at Saint Vitus Bar, and it's a joint album release celebration with their Flenser labelmates Scarcity, the new collaborative project of composer Brendon Randall-Myers (Glenn Branca Ensemble) and Pyrrhon/Seputus/Glorious Depravity/Weeping Sores vocalist Doug Moore. The previously announced October 21 show is already sold out, and they just added a second for October 24. Tickets are on sale now. All upcoming Chat Pile dates are listed below.
