Static Tension Recordings is proud to announce their first release:Original Demo Recordings by PUBLICIST UK – An exciting new band featuring members of Revocation, Municipal Waste, Goes Cube and Freshkills.
Original Demo Recordings will be released as a limited edition 7″ on February 17th 2015.
With absolutely zero discussion for what the band should sound like, or for what the band’s goals were, four people (Dave, David, Zack, and Brett) came together to form PUBLICIST UK. When the band formed in late 2013, there was not a single member of the band who had known, met, or talked to all three other members.
PUBLICIST UK was four friends-of-friends who became friends and who soon had well over an album worth of songs, and who had no idea what people would think of the music they were making, as it was so vastly different than any other music they’d ever made before.
In the middle of 2014, the band posted two rough recordings, which gained the attention of Decibel Magazine, MetalSucks, Noisey, Metal Injection, and others. They signed to Relapse Records in September of 2014, and spent the rest of the year completing their first album, which will be released in 2015.
