‘Eat Acid See God’ is the new single from Italy’s finest psychedelic punks The Gluts. It is an early taste of the Milan-based band’s fourth album which they have recently finished recording with producer Bob De Wit (A Place To Bury Strangers, White Hills, The Sonics, Gnod). Not yet announced but pencilled in for release in Autumn 2021, ‘Eat Acid See God’ is an early insight into what the band have in store on the highly-anticipated follow-up to 2019’s Dengue Fever Hypnotic Trip LP.
On the single, the band said: “‘Eat Acid See God’ came out during a session held in a gloomy atmosphere with only dim lights in the rehearsal room, despite the sun shining bright and long that late summer afternoon. The first few synth notes we started with turned into a sticky musical slime. We felt like flies stuck in honey: angry and desperate. Almost consequently it’s the heaviest, most psychedelic song on the whole album and it’s the most different to the rest of the album. It sounds like God’s wrath, a rising furious tide of flames. No words were really needed, only vocals that sounded like they were coming from an obscure and remote otherworld.”
Since forming in 2013, The Gluts have brought their notoriously deafening live show around Portugal, Switzerland, the UK, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Poland, Denmark and South Africa. They’ve performed at such festivals as Eurosonic Noorderslag (NL), Fuzz Club Eindhoven (NL), Label Mates (UK), MiAMI Festival (IT) and Endless Daze (ZA). In October this year they will set off on a European tour with their Fuzz Club label-mates 10 000 Russos.
It’s not quite like anything you have ever heard before, and probably won’t again. It’s not like anything they’ve released before and can basically be described as a musical kick in the face. Raw, provocative and unadulterated, turn it up loud and decide for yourself if you can hear, rather than see God.
