On the day of the release of their mini-album ‘VINYL01‘, London four piece DIY punk outfit TEAR have shared another taster of what you can expect from the record. ‘Begging‘ is the penultimate track from the seven-song offering, and you can listen to it/watch the brand new video, following a premiere on The Quietus below.
‘VINYL01‘ is out now via Tim Burgess‘ label O Genesis Recordings, and features previous singles ‘Careless Again‘, ‘The Sprawl‘ and ‘Beautiful‘. The band signed to Tim’s label in late 2015 for the release of their first EP, and have since been busy
making a name for themselves through a string of intimate shows and festival performances.
The mini-album contains the raw power that TEAR are renowned for across their live shows; it is a fully charged and sonically tight collection of female-fronted, lo-fi rock music that will be sure to earmark the band as ones to watch in 2017. It was recorded in two parts; one with Tim Burgess and Jim Spencer at The Charlatans’ Big Mushroom studio in Cheshire, and the other at Bark Studios with Victoria Freund.
Track listing for the mini-album as follows:
1. The Sprawl
2. Never Fade Away
3. Nothing You Can’t Have
