Damn Teeth return with "Heavily Telegraphed/Correctly Aligned", the second single from their forthcoming second album, Real Men - the single is scheduled for release on digital platforms Sunday 18th November.
Glasgow's Damn Teeth (featuring current and ex-members of Thin Privilege, Black International and Joanna Gruesome) produce a synth-heavy sound that touches on the dance-noise of Six Finger Satellite, the melodic hysteria of Xiu Xiu and the pop sensibilities of LCD Soundsystem gone sour. In their four years as a band, Damn Teeth have toured the UK twice over, racked up support slots with Future Of The Left, Self Defense Family, Dead Rider and Hop Along amongst others, and have appeared at festivals such as Doune The Rabbit Hole, Shetfest and Restless Natives. Their debut album was released digitally and as a limited-run cassette via Good Grief Records in 2015 - the latter presented in heat-sealed latex packaging.
Lyrically, Real Men takes a deep dive into the horrors of male sexuality and the masculinist mindset, drawing influence from pornography, media coverage of figures such as Larry Nassar and Joseph DeAngelo, and the writings and sound collages of Peter Sotos. In the process of siphoning this Power Electronics-esque subject matter into a pop framework, lead singer/lyricist Paul McArthur explores his own complicity in patriarchal abuse, and attempts to tease out a pro-Feminist message from within the mire. Damn Teeth aim to crawl into the mouth of Men’s Rights culture and explode it from the inside.
"Heavily Telegraphed/Correctly Aligned" was produced and engineered by Niall Sinclair (Urvanovic) with drums recorded by Ross McGowan (Dananananaykroyd, Thin Privilege), and was mastered by James Plotkin (Oneohtrix Point Never, John Carpenter).
