Toronto’s Vomitface recently signed to Help Yourself Records for the forthcoming August 26, 2016 release of their Steve Albini-recorded debut full-length, Hooray For Me. Now, the band are streaming another new single “Chew Toy” which follows their lead single, “Senior Pictures”.
Jared Micah (vocals/guitar) and Preetma Singh (drums) found themselves trapped in their Jersey City, NJ, home during Hurricane Sandy. Drawing inspiration from their depressing surroundings and a shelf full of equally depressing records – Slint, Shellac, and Babes in Toyland, to name a few – Micah and Singh decided they had nothing better to do than to write loud songs. Those songs eventually became a band that they decided to call Vomitface, despite several industry professionals subsequently telling them that was a bad idea.
Although Vomitface enjoyed playing alongside bands made up of trust fund punks and part-time models in New York City, they recently relocated up north to Singh’s hometown of Toronto, Canada, in pursuit of a better life. They also hope to beat the eventual onslaught of American refugees immigrating after the inauguration of Donald Trump.
