Chicago Thrashers Oozing Wound Drop New Video and Announce First Ever UK TourWe’ve been thrilling to the sick sound of Thrill Jockey signed Chicago Thrashers Oozing ever since the label tipped us off that they’d signed a band they thought we’d like. They’ve been busy cats since then -late 2013- and it’s been great fun keeping up with their audio output! They’ve now finally announced their first ever UK tour – with Ghold who are seriously gnarly and seriously rad – full dates for which can be found below along with a brilliant new video.

Via the press release:

“Are you ready for some of the filthiest, snottiest, relentless and downright loud crossover thrash this side of early 80s Metallica, Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies? If so then buckle up as Thrill Jockey Records are happy to announce that Chicago’s Oozing Wound will be heading to Europe for the first time ever this March and April for a big tour.”

“The band released their second album Earth Suck in 2014 to great acclaim. The record is a raucous and bulldozing affair that leaves a lasting impression.”

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
