Blending earthy bends and cool, organic harmonics into the bed of foundation-crumbling low-end swagger and massive amplification, Dissent brings The Cutthroats 9 back into the mix in massive style with seven slamming new tracks. With longtime skinsmasher Will Carroll (Old Granddad, Death Angel) returning to the lineup, and the addition of bassist Tony Baumeister (-16-, Aeges) joining founding guitarist/vocalist Chris Spencer (Unsane, Celan), Dissent was recorded and mixed at Louder Studios with producer Tim Green (Melvins, Bikini Kill, Dystopia, The Fucking Champs, Wolves In The Throne Room) where the band recorded their 2000-released self-titled debut LP, bringing everything full-circle fifteen years later.
Dissent will see a deluxe, ultra-quality 150-gram audiophile LP release with download card included via Lamb Unlimited, with lacquers and LP mastering by Lupo at Calyx, Berlin, on June 3rd, followed by a widespread CD release via longtime cohorts Reptilian Records on June 24th. The layout includes photos by James Rexroad and layout by Orion Landon (Relapse Records' in-house artist).
The band has also locked into a West Coast run immediately preceding the release of Dissent where they'll bleed ears to the sweet sounds of their new tunes as well as their crushing back-catalog live ragers. From May 22nd through the 26th, The Cutthroats 9 will join Norwegian Grammy-winning noise/punk outfit, Årabrot, and headlining San Fran gruesome sludge twosome, Black Cobra, the lineup confirmed to raid San Francisco, Fresno, Pacifica, Portland and Seattle. Additional CT9 tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
