The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Ben Weinman recently remixed Violent Soho’s current single ‘Jesus Stole My Girlfriend’ and now the band are offering it up for free download to coincide with the original track’s release. Weinman was impressed with what he heard of Violent Soho’s music and had the following to say about the band - "With all the wanna be art rock bands coming out today, relying on over produced and over done studio tricks, it was great to get my hands on Violent Soho's tracks. I really enjoyed putting my twist on this band and look forward to seeing what these guys do in the years to come."
Violent Soho’s eponymous album will be released in the UK on 2nd August through Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace! label. A copy of the album they recorded in their garage found its way into the Sonic Youth legend’s hands and he was straight down the front head banging at their first gig in New York at the legendary Lower East Side hang out Pianos. The buzz around their punishingly hard live show spread to Rick Rubin, who personally invited them to play his condo in Malibu. Rock Godhead no.2 declared his fandom.
Thurston offered them a deal on his Ecstatic Peace! label and chose the most skilful producers in the genre. Gil Norton (Jimmy Eat World, The Distillers) made the record in Rockfields studio in the Welsh countryside, with mixing duties handled by Rich Costey (Mastodon, Muse, Mars Volta, Interpol). That’s the production team behind the crunchy, layered sound of some of the biggest guitar records of all time (The Pretender, Foo Fighters.)
