!!! THR!!!ER Details

By Claire Lobenfeld / January 29, 2013

For their fifth full-length, !!! are looking to outdo the rest of their catalogue. The album, which will be released on in the spring, is called THR!!!ER a reference to Michael Jackson’s iconic sixth LP. According to guitarist Mario Andreoni, the word, or title, is “synonymous with an artist(s)’ and/or genre(s)’ artistic high-water mark.” Instead of the loose, whatever-works recording strategy the band usually employs, their composed the music was already written before they hit the studio so they could finesse the finished product in line with their vision of perfection. Singer Nic Offer adds that, “[!!! has] never tried to make the same record twice, we might have accidentally, but we’ve always tried to push on. For this one it felt like we definitely shoved off from the shore.” THR!!!ER is out 4/30 via Warp. Watch a teaser below.
