West Yorkshire psychedelic alt-rock grunge weirdos, Allusondrugs are back with a new single 'Nervous', set for release on 28th April via Clue Records.
'Nervous' shows another, previously unheard, side to Allusondrugs' distinctly unique sound, combining their familiar grunge riffs with atmospheric lead guitar lines that could have been lifted straight from early R.E.M and layered vocal melodies reminiscent of Elliott Smith, sending a shiver down the spine. Front man Jason Moules croons "I keep my ear to the ground, she made it clear but never mind, this could be the worst thing I've done, I know this will be the thing that kills us."
The five self-confessed fuzz junkies from Castleford, West Yorkshire formed in the autumn of 2012, have been building a rabidly loyal following with their transparently unique sound and DIY approach to releasing music online as and when they like, sometimes before it's even finished. Streaming practices live on the web and hosting debauched release parties at monthly club residences coupled with growing praise for their explosive live shows saw them sign to newly founded Northern start-up Clue Records early last year.
The 300 limited edition CDs, crafted by the band, will be available for pre-order from April 14th via Bandcamp & iTunes with the first 50 orders receiving a free exclusive poster.
