THE RODEO IDIOT ENGINE «Malaise» LP/CD pre-orders 22 Oct 2015

We are glad to announce the release of THE RODEO IDIOT ENGINE's third album «Malaise» - LPs and CDs are available here or via Deathwish Inc for US customers. The record is out now on CD and digital - with 12" vinyl version to follow in January - and can be downloaded for free here. Head over to Cvlt Nation for an exclusive interview (english/french) - the band will be touring though Europe in December. 


"Bayonne-based quintet THE RODEO IDIOT ENGINE have been nothing but unstoppable since their very first steps in 2009, tirelessly sculpting a signature sound torn between the most abrasive sides of chaotic hardcore, post-metal or screamo. After gaining a growing reputation all over Europe due to their 250 staggering, seizure-inducing live shows, the band returned to Amaury Sauvé's studio in Laval during summer 2015 to track «Malaise», their third full-length and follow-up to 2013's «Consequences».

While most acts tend to soften with age, the band's work has only become darker over the years. Opener "Le Parfum" sets the tone, with merciless, spasmodic rhythms morphing into bleak, slow-paced heaviness and emotionally-charged vocals screamed to the breaking point. From the straight-up barrage of grinding yet melodic tracks ("Carrying Icons", "Final Relief") to more downtempo, menacing ones ("Syngue Sabour", "Thousand Of Nails"), «Malaise» is a dense album with rich atmospheres and structures. On these nine tracks THE RODEO IDIOT ENGINE's trademark sound has turned more expressive, resulting in nothing but the band's strongest material to date."

- Recorded and mixed by Amaury Sauvé at La Senelle/The Apiary, Laval
- Mastered by Nick Zampiello at New Alliance East Mastering, Boston
- Artwork photos by Louis Triol

Tracklist :
1 - Le Parfum
2 - Carrying Icons
3 - Passing Daemons
4 - Syngue Sabour
5 - Je Me Noierai
6 - Ildoak
7 - Makurrak
8 - Final Relief
9 - Thousand Of Nails

BIRDS IN ROW/WAITC «Split» 10"EP out Oct.30th 10 Oct 2015

Pre-order/download for free

"The most "local" split you can get - written, recorded, designed, pressed and released in Laval, France. A perfect pairing between two loud and abrasive three-pieces, both tracked and mixed at La Senelle by Amaury Sauvé.

At this point BIRDS IN ROW should need no introduction, spreading their trademark tense and heartfelt hardcore/punk to every single corner of the globe with a P.A. system all along these last six years. These three new anthems make no exception, encapsulating all their savoir-faire whether it comes to raging heaviness or to more powerfully melancholic tracks. This is the band's first installment in a string of splits that will see the light in the future.

Following a bunch of EPs, this split marks WAITC's brutal first steps on vinyl. Founded in 2012 (and formerly known as We Are In The Country) this young band has refined its sound over the years, delivering what could be described as an angst-ridden, noise-infused reinterpretation of Ebullition-era screamo. With their distinctive nervous riffing and triple vocal assault perfectly served by an harsh, in-the-red production, these three tracks are directly establishing the band as a force to be reckoned with."

1 - Birds In Row — Can't Leave 
2 - Birds In Row — Can't Lie 
3 - Birds In Row — Can't Love 
4 - WAITC — Empty Decade/Saturnism 
5 - WAITC — Veiled Ax 
6 - WAITC — Empty Mailbox

- Side A mastered by Nick Zampiello at New Alliance East, Boston 
- Side B mastered by Karl Daniel Lidén at Studio Gröndahl, Stockholm 
- Artwork by Bart Balboa and Matthis Lacroix
