Potty Mouth announce debut LP ‘Hell Bent,’ premiere first track through NPR [listen]


After hundreds of performances on my personal iTunes and iPhone throughout the second half of 2012, Northampton alt-rock band POTTY MOUTH have stepped up their game this year, announcing through NPR today that debut LP Hell Bent is on the way this fall via Old Flame Records.

NPR listed the track “The Spins” among nine other songs in Heavy Rotation — “10 Songs Public Radio Can’t Stop Playing” — alongside acts like Pretty Lights, Lorde, and !!!.

“The Spins” continues the noisy, abrasively smooth guitar-rock template set on last year’s incredible Sun Damage 12-inch EP, which was so good it got released on three separate labels (Ride The Snake, Puzzle Pieces, and Damage Records). That won’t be the case with Hell Bent, which arrives September 17 off Brooklyn-based Old Flame, the home to Massachusetts bands like Mean Creek and You Won’t as well as Cloud Nothings, Dead Confederate, and Shark?.

No word yet on the 10-song track listing, or whether the full-length will include some of the songs from Sun Damaged (“Dog Song,” “Hazardville” were among the best of 2012, as I wrote in the Boston Phoenix year-end wrap-up) or the December stand-along singe, “Damage.”

UPDATE 7:32PM: Oh yeah, Spin’s got the track listing posted, and it looks like nine new songs and “Damage.” Sweet.

But you can pre-order it now through Old Flame’s Big Cartel site.

Listen to “The Spins” up above, then check out their quick string of show around the Northeast over the next few days.
