The brilliant Forged Artifacts signal their march in to 2015 with the release of the debut album from What Tyrants, which drops later this Spring. The brilliantly raucous trio from Minnesota will release the thirteen-track ‘No Luck‘ on March 24th and we’re super pleased to premiere the lead track from it today.
A blistering two-and-a-half minutes of scrappy, loose-limed garage pop, ‘Muffins‘ is a perfectly obvious lead track, swallowing all around it with its forcible but delightfully addictive reach. The guitars are suitably aggressive, a chasm of meaty riffs that link arm-in-arm with the percussion to propel the track forward at break-neck speed and set a solid backdrop for that ragged and restless vocal to simply run riot.
The most relentlessly satisfying 150-seconds you’ll have all day, stream the new cut below right now. Pre-order the tape here.
