Today, Gouge Away have released a new two-song E.P. and the B-side / cover of the iconic Pixies track “Wave of Mutilation” is available for your streaming pleasure. Vocalist Christina Michelle comments on the song, “This is a fun way of getting back at people who are upset that we’re named after a song title.”
The Consider b/w Wave of Mutilation E.P. follows the one-year anniversary of Gouge Away’s acclaimed full-length Burnt Sugar, and the band continues to sink their enraged critiques into societal ills and injustice. Recorded by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker), A-side “Consider” is a strikingly aggressive song; lyrically it stands as a powerful artistic statement on blind nationalism and patriotism in the modern age. B-side “Wave of Mutilation” is a fantastic Pixies cover. 25% of the profits from the sale of this 7inch will be donated to the International Rescue Committee – more information on the organization and their mission can be found at rescue.org.
Although Gouge Away aren’t currently on the road— the first leg of their tour supporting Circa Survive has been postponed— the band hopes to be back out for the tour’s second leg in May and June. All dates can be found below and we will update with news and information as soon as we have it.
