Kansas City’s sludgy noise rock trio BUMMER have just unloosed a killer single, “Astro Bastard“, from their upcoming new album release.
That album, “Holy Terror“, will arrive from Learning Curve Records on August 24th and was recorded and mixed by Justin Mantooth (Radkey, Godmaker). If this first taste of the record is any indication, BUMMER has perfected a most abrasive battery of tumultuous heaviness, whose influences range from Slayer to the Melvins and Unsane.
BUMMER will be hitting the road soon and you can find all the upcoming live dates below.
