FILTH IS ETERNAL Release “Pressure Me” Single / Video
New Album Find Out Coming September 29
“It’s fast and mean, but it’s also got big, melodic hooks and a heavy-shredding guitar solo.” STEREOGUM
“a gritty punk ripper that kinda sounds like a cross between The Distillers and Cursed” BROOKLYN VEGAN
“Filth Is Eternal sounds refreshingly untethered from the current hardcore trend-scape… frontperson Lis Di Angelo can really f*king belt, and they let their voluminous voice rip atop these riffs with a commanding passion that really leaves an impact on the ears.” REVOLVER
Filth is Eternal have unleashed their driving, immediate new single “Pressure Me”. Friction from opposing forces informs the lyrics on their forthcoming album, Find Out – the title of which could infer emergence from trauma or consequential learning. Regardless of its intended meaning, the title is used as a conduit for the band to push toward positive strides when addressing mental health, addiction, and relationships, with community as a salve.
Of “Pressure Me”, frontperson Lis Di Angelo explains, “Growth and change can be uncomfortable, even painful, at times. We’re afraid of sharing our misery with others but allowing others in can help us gain perspective to see our current situation in a new light. ‘Pressure Me’ is a roadmap of nonlinear progress. It’s an acknowledgment that sometimes, whether we want to admit it or not, we need the pressure of honest discourse, especially if we mean to figure out the world we’ve built and discover the root of our problems.”
Find Out is the triumphant reawakening of one of Seattle’s most vigorous and involved bands. The new testament whips forth with the force of a breakthrough and is a clear undertaking of their own genesis with a deep awareness of themselves, their crowd, and the shared history between them. The band’s ground rules: immediacy must be prioritized. The songs should have the power to whip up a pit in under thirty seconds. They must be vital and exciting.
The key to the new Filth is Eternal sound is the deep-rooted attention to songwriting. Exploding with fresh ideas, heavy on hooks, and clandestine melody, Find Out is a clear breakout release for FIE, not to mention a future staple for heavy music fans worldwide. Using the talents of producer Paul Fig (Slipknot, AFI, Alice In Chains) while recording at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 and Dave’s Room, Find Out adds just enough spit polish in production to conjure the masses but still retains the dirt and grime necessary to remain congruous to the sound and fury within.
At the core of Filth is Eternal is the instrumental trio of Brian McClelland (guitar), and Emily Salisbury (drums), who lean into bone-crushing death metal and crust riffage, precision-machined grind, and nitro-fueled punk to create the nihilistic and galloping armored vehicle that is FIE. When hard-pressed about specific bands and styles, the band avoids individual names in favor of movements, yet it’s clear that the darker, more complex side of hardcore is probably the most direct influence. Names ranging from Converge to Cursed may be the most prevalent while others such as Trap Them, Alice in Chains, Stockholm-style death metal, and even The Distillers come to mind for additional inspiration, melody, and tactical songwriting purposes.
Vocalist / lyricist Lis Di Angelo delivers a singular performance, looking at life in the balance, where individual things are in a semblance of order but lacking synergy and permanence. With an approach rooted in grunge and extreme music; their visceral delivery sits comfortably on the fulcrum between raspy hardcore vocals and cogent melodicism, allowing a range of emotional depth and dynamics.
On Find Out, each track creates a sense of urgency and relating the band’s explosive message to an unabating soundtrack of punk-inflected ferocity. Embrace the oncoming tidal wave, changing of the guard, and new revolution from Filth is Eternal. Sound the reveille because one way or another, you’ll Find Out.
Find Out sees its release on September 29 and is their label debut with MNRK Music Group. The album will be available across all digital retailers and released on vinyl and CD formats.
