Aborted Tortoise hail from Perth, Australia and are set to release a brand EP out into the world of Punk music. It’s a world that is never a lonely place, a place that is filled with so much diversity, but also a place so many bands can get lost in – trying to fit in rather than standing out.
Thankfully though Aborted Tortoise (a name like this alone gives them a head start) are never gonna be found floundering judging by their forthcoming “Scale Model Subsistence Vendor” EP.
Due to be released via the Italian punk legend label “Goodbye Boozy Records” this EP has songs that will add so much more to a reputation that has already brought them a cult following in the underground scene. What’s not to like in songs that hold influence from all around the world of punk but at the same time add so much more to help it evolve. Hard, straight to the point songs – take “Plastic Orgasm” (draw your own conclusions as to the lyric) for example, which has more than a hint of Cyanide Pills going on, for those who need a reference point, and thats not a bad thing at all. It spits and fizzes at a supercharged pace, with a healthy dose of melody and singalong chorus to hang onto.
“We were asked if we wanted to release a 7″ by Goodbye Boozy records (Italy) shortly before Connor was set to relocate to Europe last year,” say the group on the EP, which arrives ahead of a national tour this Autumn. “We obviously said yes because we love the label so in about a week we came up with a concept and recorded the four songs on tape on my four-track. It was mastered by Tunafish (who also recorded our upcoming LP) and our good friend Hannah did the sleeve art.
