Rolo Tomassi Sign To Ipecac Recordings


Rolo Tomassi, the female-fronted British band NME dubbed “mathcore noise bastards (and bastress),” release their North American debut album, Grievances, on July 7 via Ipecac Recordings.

The band, which hails from Sheffield, formed in 2005, taking their name from the film L.A. Confidential. While Rolo Tomassi have yet to release an album Stateside, the band has toured the U.S. with Jane’s Addiction, joined Dillinger Escape Plan on their European outing and saw their 2010 album, Cosmology, produced by Diplo. Pitchfork said singer Eva Spence is, “equally comfortable singing in a glassy, ethereal coo and a glasses-shattering screech.”

A little delay...

It seems that crazy weather that hit the East coast the past few weeks, closed down the production plants for several days and delayed the Faith No More Superhero seven-inch just a bit. It will now be in stores on Monday March 23rd.

We truly appreciate your support and understanding!

Zu premieres title track from the March 24th release of “Cortar Todo” on The Quietus

Zu Band Promo

Zu are preparing to release their first new full-length in five years, titled Cortar Todo and due out via Ipecac Recordings on the rapidly approaching release date of March 23rd. The Quietus has revealed the title track, an intensely rhythmic beast that seeps industrial fluid and volatile flames of brass-bending static, and is symptomatic of the roaming, alien sounds of the album.

LISTEN TO "CORTAR TODO" AT THE QUIETUS: http://thequietus.com/articles/17252-listen-new-music-from-zu

Don't forget, you can still listen to 'Rudra Dances Over Burning Rome' at the Ipecac Soundcloud page - https://soundcloud.com/ipecacrecordings/zu-rudra-dances-over-burning-rome/s-ut0Z5

Cortar Todo reveals new dynamics from the band, the album is more direct, sharp, focussed, and more intense and musical than anything we have heard from Zu so far. Check out the artwork and track listing below.

Zu - Cortar Todo

  1. The Unseen War
  2. Rudra Dances Over Burning Rome
  3. Cortar Todo
  4. A Sky Burial
  5. Orbital Equilibria
  6. Serpens Cauda
  7. No Pasa Nada
  8. Conflict Acceleration
  9. Vantablack Vomitorium
  10. Pantokrator

In addition to the album release, we can expect a long period of touring starting in May 2015.

Faith No More Release "Sol Invictus" on May 19th

Faith No More Sol Invictus Promo

Sol Invictus, Faith No More’s highly anticipated follow-up to Album of the Year, arrives on May 19th via Reclamation Recordings/Ipecac Recordings.

“What I can say is that I think through our experience as musicians over the years, I think what we're doing reflects where we've gone since we made our last record as Faith No More. I think this kicks things up a notch,” explained Bill Gould in a recent Rolling Stone interview. “And I think there's parts that are very powerful and there's parts that have a lot of "space." Everything we do, with our chemistry, the way we play; it's always going to sound like us. It's just what we do, that makes us feel good.“

Sol Invictus was produced by Gould and recorded in the band’s Oakland, Calif. studio.

The Bay Area band recently announced their first North American tour since 2010, with all dates sold out upon on-sale. Faith No More traveled to Australia last week, then North America in April/May followed by a European tour in June.
