Los Angeles-based outfit 3TEETH will release its new album, "Metawar", on July 5 via RED Music.
The first single from the the Sean Beavan-produced (NINE INCH NAILS, MARILYN MANSON) disc is "American Landfill", an unrelenting song frontman Alexis Mincolla says is intended to convey the feel of "getting buried under the ruin of a fallen empire." The track is available as an instant download with pre-orders.
Mincolla said: "If our debut album was focused on man vs. the world, and our sophomore album was man vs. himself, then I really wanted to 'Metawar' to focus on the idea of world vs world, and the notion that if man doesn't create his own world then he's often crushed by the world of another.
"This album is meant to be sonic attack on the wide scale perception management systems that currently grip our respective worlds. It's a sort of counter-measure in the invisible silicon war of ideology that is constantly moving avatar pawns on the battleground of our large-scale prosthetic digital nervous system. Thematically, it's centered largely around concepts of accelerationism and the political heresy of inviting the end as an opportunity as a fresh start. 'Metawar' is here to tear down the walls of our memetic concentration camps."
3TEETH released its self-titled debut album in 2014, seeing the 14-track album top the iTunes electronic charts and garnering the attention of TOOL guitarist Adam Jones, who offered the outfit a spot on his band's 2016 U.S. tour. Being handpicked by one of rock music's biggest acts led to a new level of attention, with Rolling Stone profiling the band, saying 3TEETH's music is "a mix of state-of-the-art sensory overload with a take-no-prisoners level of aggression." TOOL audiences were so receptive to 3TEETH's powerful live show, the rising band was invited to return for the next leg of the tour. Once off the road, the 3TEETH members locked themselves in the studio to crank out their sophomore release, "
