Fred Cracklin single "Brutal Tandem" premiere + new album Anxiety Kinship 4/10

we art thrilled to announce that we're working on Fred Cracklin's new record Anxiety Kinship. We will be releasing the record in a 12" LP format (rare for us, very exciting) alongside the great Midnight Werewolf Records.

The first single, "Brutal Tandem" premiered recently via Scene Point Blank. Writing about the single, Cracklin's own Max G explained:

"BT ended up with a bit of everything from our previous record—simple pounding riffage, goofy wobbling freakouts, precarious anxiety-induced speed, and of course guitar solos. But it also allowed new bits of dissonance, technicality, and *gasp* space! As a consequence of being that Cracklin buffet, it also references many of our favorite heavy metal idioms—blast beats, sludgy doom, and of course guitar solos. I think we were so excited to have crammed so many different ideas into one song that it encouraged us to quickly write the rest of the album and to keep it weird(er)."
