The Skinny: West Yorkshire psychedelic alt-rock grunge weirdo’s Allusondrugs are back with new single “Nervous” ahead of their appearance at Live At Leeds on 3rd May, whilst they hit the road on their first headline tour in June with support from Milk Teeth and Fizzy Blood. The new single will be released on Clue Records on April 28th as a limited edition CD run of 300. The first 50 orders come with a free exclusive poster.
“Nervous” shows another, previously unheard, side to Allusondrugs’ distinctly unique sound as it combines their familiar grunge riffs with atmospheric lead guitar lines that could have been lifted straight from early R.E.M and layered vocal melodies reminiscent of Elliott Smith, sending a shiver down the spine as front man Jason Moules croons “I keep my ear to the ground, she made it clear but never mind, this could be the worst thing I’ve done, I know this will be the thing that kills us.”
The five self-confessed fuzz junkies from Castleford, West Yorkshire formed in the autumn of 2012 and have been building a rabidly loyal following with their transparently unique sound and DIY approach to releasing music online as and when they like, sometimes before it’s even finished. Streaming practices live on the web and hosting debauched release parties at monthly club residencies coupled with growing praise for their explosive live shows saw them sign to newly founded Northern start-up Clue Records early last year.
