It is with great pride that In The Red records announce the debut full length from Detroit, Michigan’s The Piranhas.
This hotly anticipated album delivers on the promise of the band’s two seven-inch singles and twelve inch single released on the Tom Perkins and Rock n’ Roll Blitzkrieg labels. These early releases have garnered rave reviews for the band and earned them the prestigious cover of Maximum Rock n’ Roll. Their chaotic live shows have earned them a reputation for being one of the few truly primal and dangerous bands around.
Their music is a violent head on collision between art-skronk abstraction and raw punk savagery. Like a mutant cross between Hearpen era Pere Ubu and “Damaged” era Black Flag with a dose of mid 70’s Cleveland punk poured over the top for good measure. Yet they still sound like nothing else you’ve heard before. The good folks at Horizontal Action described The Piranhas better than we ever could: “The Piranhas fucking destroy.
The Piranhas may be the best band of this era. Art damage punk that is so brutal and primordial that it’s unbelievable. They make me want to pull my intestines out and chop on them! They make me want to drill through my own hand! I AM NOT FUCKING KIDDING!!! I totally lose my shit over these guys. If you haven’t heard any of their shit you have no idea what you’re talking about when it comes to modern punk. Fuck!!! Fuck!!! Shit!!! DESTROY YOURSELF!!! GET FUCKING PRIMAL!!!”
