Gum Takes Tooth: 'Silent Cenotaph' out today & Tigertrap 5th Birthday SALE!
posted 13 Jun 2011

Greetings all,

The debut album from East London's very finest noise-rock duo GUM TAKES TOOTH is now in stores all about the UK. It's called *'Silent Cenotaph'* and we're very proud of it. You can purchase the release on both digipack CD and download formats. Press folks have been saying nice things, such as:

"A stunning, uncompromising and thoroughly compelling listen." - AU, 9/10

"A terrifying, monstrous amalgam of precision and abandon. Wonderful." - THE FLY, 4/5

"Calculated no-wave noise and frenetic drumming built purposefully from sparse driving beats into overpowering basslines" - CLASH

"Effortlessly combining noise freakouts, psyche and headbanging metal with head-bobbing beats... Electronic and forward looking." - WIRE

"A magnificent and gung-ho monument to the terrifying joys of making a childish racket." - NME, 7/10

"The album heralds the arrival of the sonic pioneers in truly inimitable style." - FLUX

We're giving away the first track from the album, 'Young Mustard', FREE from this place.

=============

Gum Takes Tooth: Pre-order 'Silent Cenotaph' (out 6th June) now and get another album free!
posted 21 Apr 2011

Gum Takes Tooth are getting set to release their debut album 'Silent Cenotaph' on 6th June through Tigertrap Records, so we've set up a nice little 2-for-1 deal on all pre-orders through our shop.

Gum Takes Tooth, a thunderous rampage of noise tempered with an aptitude for precise rhythms and splintered melody, is a single-headed beast with two bodies: a duo of Thomas Fuglesang on live acoustic drums, physically wired into home grown electronic instruments and bare circuit boards, tweaked, molded and mangled in real-time by Jussi Brightmore.

The group decisively bring together their wildly varied influences of out-there noise, metal, primeval rhythms, spacious psyche, pan-ethnic oddities, primal punk, acid house and vintage electronics on their debut album, 'Silent Cenotaph'. Tracklisting here:

1. Young Mustard
2. Strychnine Motive
3. The Earth's Mantle Colonised
4. Nomad/Monad
5. Peace in Your Middle Yeast
6. Tannkjψtt
7. Rise From the Peat and Walk
8. Hermaphrodite and Nourishment

The dynamic duo also have some tourdates in the works. Here's where they'll be and when:

30th Apr – Servants Jazz Quarters, London, UK
3rd May – DNA, Brussels, BELGIUM
5th May – Alhambra, Oldenburg, GERMANY
