The second album from London-based noise-mongers Applicants hit the shops today! 'Escape From Kraken Castle' is available on CD and also digitally and features 12 spangly new tracks, including forthcoming single 'Evelyn Waugh'.

The press have had these nice things to say about the album:

""We can't help but think, just maybe, they might just be total bona fide geniuses." - 8/10 - NME

"It's abrasive, it's energetic and there are plenty of choruses to shout along to" - ROCK SOUND

"Applicants dredge influences from colourful surrealist noise rockers Melt-Banana to GameBoy noises and moustachioed African dictators" - 7/10 - LOUD & QUIET

Upcoming live shows:

14th Jun @ Alchemy, WOLVERHAMPTON
29th Jun @ The Old Blue Last, LONDON
8th Aug @ A Boat on the Thames, LONDON

They're on at 9pm, so come down early and stick around for Indieokie action (featuring Fidel) at Mutton Club, which will also be lots and lots of fun.

The lovely folks at NME have just awarded the album 8/10, saying "We can't help but think, just maybe, they might just be total bona fide geniuses."

You can stream the whole album here on the Tigertrap website by clicking the Applicants link and pre-order the CD from our spangly new online store.

posted 24 May 2010

London noiseniks Applicants release 'Escape From Kraken Castle' through Tigertrap Records on 7th June 2010 on CD and digital formats. It is now available to pre-order in our online store.

This second album expands on debut ‘Life In The Bus Lane’, adding live drummer Adam Boult and ratcheting up the volume levels yet another gear. Rammed with pop hooks to irritate indier-than-thou hipsters and eardrum-blitzing noise to terrify the pop kids, ‘Escape From Kraken Castle’ is an unrelenting, unapologetic punk rock tour de force that laughs in the face of musical etiquette. The tracklisting is as follows:

1. Schoolchildren Of Japan
2. Evelyn Waugh
3. Cold War In Reverse
4. Tesco Metro Disco
5. Crash Mat
6. Robert Mugabe
7. They Wrote Gone Fishing On His Grave
8. Obey eBay
9. Since Porn Took Over The World
10. Treble 20
11. The Darien
12. Packing Up

You can stream the whole album at SoundCloud now. We've had a couple of reviews in so far, so here's what folks have been saying:

"It's abrasive, it's energetic and there are plenty of choruses to shout along to" - ROCK SOUND

"Applicants dredge influences from colourful surrealist noise rockers Melt-Banana to GameBoy noises and moustachioed African dictators" - 7/10 - LOUD & QUIET

Go see them at one of these upcoming dates:

28th May @ Ryan's Bar, LONDON
29th May @ The Windmill, LONDON (Brainlove Records Alldayer)
4th Jun @ Buffalo Bar, LONDON (Album Launch Party!)
14th Jun @ Alchemy, WOLVERHAMPTON
