With the world around us bruised and bloodied with teeth already dug into the concrete curb, we find ourselves with the shadow of a large boot looming overhead. What better time for No Age? They know how to ecstatically rage & power on thru pain, because what else are you gonna do? The future belongs to the cockroaches, and this record is made for the disparate band of misfits who 2017 couldn't kill.

Snares Like a Haircut sounds like the good shit, and smells like the buzzy burning off of an aura, the marine layer suddenly vanished, leaving a thin layer of smog over the songs, simmering sock gazing tunes, revved and displacing enormous amounts of sound soil. With Snares Like a Haircut, No Agescrub the itch in the little moments, engage actively with the process and carve/plaster/shave something in an album shape that'll last.

Re-imagined rippers, compelling ever forward; something that provokes challenges on the ear. That was always the goal, but after a few years spent not No Age-ing, just working on that thing called life, is it any wonder that Deanand Randy wanted to pump out some rock and roll for the black hole? Does time mean nothing to you? Don't answer that.

2017 is nearly over, but guess what? New No Age! Not new age No Age(except for the odd "Sun Spots"/ "Keechie"-style shimmer that only ever makes everything better), but definitely an age of album-making located somewhere beyond and back from where we last heard 'em in 2013.

Recorded in a few days and mixed forever, Snares Like a Haircut finds No Age in full on mode, because there was nothing else to do but go full on. In the songs inside the songs, the thumpy/thwappy drums, the desperately voiced paeans to determination, the churning and the stinging-but-shiny fuck-it built into the structure, a promise from the 1980s echoes once again across today, for the undetermined in-between generation reality seekers.

Just take a listen to "Drippy," an absolute ripper with that familiar yet distant flanging of the guitar echoing endlessly in our memory. Urgent and immediate, "Drippy" wraps y'all up in a sweeping wash of sound punctuated by the acute vocals. Not only is Snares Like A Haircut is out January 26th , but the lads are also primed to hit the international roads again, announcing both a West Coast and European tour. Dates below!

Zur Tournee: Was ist das für ein Laden in Köln? Irgendwie kann man dafür keine Karten kaufen.

Es wundert mich doch, dass die dort auftreten sollen.
Der firmiert(e) unter den Namen Aetherblissment und Club Schei.sse - praktisch direkt neben dem Sonic Ballroom.
Da wirst du wohl um Abendkasse nicht drumherum kommen, mit Glück schreiben die dich auf 'ne Liste.

Ein, zwei Nummern größer in Köln würden die doch locker auch füllen. Sehr merkwürdig...
