Reclusive grindcore masters Agoraphobic Nosebleed have been downright prolific the last few years. Playing multiple special shows at festivals, and with a great new EP out earlier this year Arc (Relapse) ,the band has seen a resurgence of popularity, and as usual, unwavering respect in the underground. They will take a turn as one of the headliners this weekend at Southwest Terrorfest V in Tuscon, AZ. Ghost Cult’s Andrew Francis caught up with Adam Freisch, Richard Johnson, and Scott Hull earlier in the year to discuss the current state of the band, future recordings, and the difference in the record industry between being in a grindcore band, versus say Slayer, Iron Maiden or Tool.
As previously announced legendary grindcore outfit Agoraphobic Nosebleed is releasing a series of EPs over the next year, each guided and influenced by the musical taste of a different member of the band. Arc will be the first EP release and led by vocalist Kat Katz and will drop from Relapse Records on January 22nd. Comprising three songs over 25 minutes, the sound can be described as doom and sludge inspired. You can see the trailed for the Arc EP at this link or below:
