The Skinny: The self-titled debut album from Melbourne-based audio assassins Cocks Arquette is set for North American release on September 7th. With OSCL Records responsible for the CD and digital releases and FTU Industries handling the limited vinyl edition, Cocks Arquette rakes over thirty-eight minutes of auditory thunder upon the listener. Massive, repetitive, whacked-out riffs coalesces into mega-amplified dirge-ridden noise rock buildups, the entire release recorded live with no overdubs. Stream the entire album below.

After commencing as a two piece continually at war with itself in 2006, operations gradually escalated via constantly varying personnel and equipment arrangements revolving around brothers Simon and David, before settling into a hardened five-piece collective in 2009. Cocks Arquette’s soul destroying maximalism quickly solidified – their “thing” became steeped in terrifying catharsis and meditative pattern repetition at maximum volume; wild and loose in the same shapes over and over again, order out of chaos and all that.

Cocks Arquette Track Listing:

01. Considerably Fucked
02. Pointlessly Vindictive
03. This Changes Nothing
04. Then Leave
