OSEES announce new album ‘A Foul Form’ – listen to raging new single “Funeral Solution”
OSEES have announced new album A Foul Form, which will be out August 12 via Castle Face. It's their first album since 2020 (when they released three albums), and after some explorations into prog territory, this one has the band banging out, as frontman John Dwyer calls it, "brain stem cracking scum-punk." The album was recorded "tersely" in Dwyer's basement, and "represents some of our most savage & primal instincts." It includes a cover of Rudimentary Peni's "Sacrifice," and you can read Dwyer's full liner notes below.
You can get a taste of A Foul Form now via first single and album-opener "Funeral Solution," a real punk ripper that finds John Dwyer in raging, throat-mangling vocal form. The video, by Logan Feser, is pretty awesome, and you can watch that below.
OSEES will be on tour starting in September, and most dates are with Bronze (who released their new album on Castle Face this spring); a few West Coast dates are also with Automatic. They play Brooklyn at Warsaw on September 22-24. All dates are listed below.

Brain stem cracking scum-punk
recorded tersely in the basement of my home.
After a notoriously frustrating eon the knee-jerk song path was aggressive and hooky.
This is an homage to the punk bands we grew up on.
The weirdos and art freaks that piqued our interests and pointed us on the trail head to here/now.
Bad times make for strong music is something I agree with.
I would say that is evident by the past few years of output from the underground.
Transmissions have been all over the map.
sweeping out in the darkness looking for a foot hold.
A Foul From represents some of our most savage & primal instincts.
Fight or flight.
And the importance of a sense of humor in the darkest hour.
Nothing wrong with keeping it snappy in the meantime.
For fans of Rudimentary Peni, Crass, Bad Brains, Black Flag, Screamers, Abwarts, Stooges and all things aggressively tilted towards your face.
You can lean back but don’t flinch…it’s a brief foray into the exhausting pogo pit so
stiffen your back and jerk with your knees.
