We debuted a new song from Oozing Wound's killer debut album Retrash over at Invisible Oranges this morning. Since I just finished writing about it over there, I'll let myself, um, speak for myself:

"Like Noisem or Slutvomit (who also have a sweet record out this year), Oozing Wound juices up their thrash with ingredients from newer, scarier parts of the metal world. Where Noisem draws on death metal and Slutvomit borrows from black metal, these guys thicken their brew with sludge. The effect is like Slayer on an all-hamburger diet, or like High on Fire with a far larger thrash component. Incidentally, High on Fire is one of the three bands they list as an influence on their FB; the other two are Black Sabbath and...the Carpenters. Very funny, guys."

Be sure to check out the whole spiel over at IO. Retrash comes out on 10/15 through Thrill Jockey (who are really digging into this metal stuff these days); preorder it here.

Oozing Wound are also gearing up for a run of East Coast/Midwestern North American dates. The tour hits New York City twice: first at Death By Audio on 10/30 with shoegaze trio The Dreebs, the gothy Pop 1280, and no wavers Sediment Club, and then again at Secret Project Robot on 11/3 with Guardian Alien (aka former Liturgy drummer Greg Fox), Skimask, and Child Abuse (who also play this week). No advance tickets for those shows.

Stream Oozing Wound's "Call Your Guy", watch a video of a second song ("Welcome to the Spaceship, Motherfucker"), and check out the full run of dates below...
