Portland hardcore punk brutalizers Cliterati — featuring within its riotous ranks Poison Idea, Voetsek, and Murderess alumni — will release their self-titled EP on cassette on December 9, 2016.
For now, you can stream the five splendid tracks here:
Pre-orders are available via the label’s Bandcamp page.
The EP was recorded and mixed by Andrew Grosse and mastered by Jose DeLara at Caravan Studios on their home turf in Oregon.
Vocalist Ami Lawless commented about the band:
Cliterati is a band who believe in equality through inclusion. We are queer, straight, people of color, and white. Our influences include the bands Doom, L7, and Bolt Thrower, with a healthy dose of Pacific Northwest D-punk. This band was brought together by Amelia Collins and we continue in loving memory of her vision to bring a breath of fresh air to Portland punk. These five rippers are the result of spending many hours in a dark dank Portland basement while smoking copious amounts of weed. Hopefully these songs will make you wanna get your clit in the pit. The positive responses at our live shows has been off the hook. We’re looking forward to taking Cliterati on the road in 2017.
Cliterati will play a special record release show this Saturday with Ghoul and Hellshock as well as a New Year’s Day show with Fang and Stuntman and an appearance at the Out Of the Closet Into The Pit Fest in March with additional live abrasions in the plotting stages.
