Quick history of the band:
Formed in 2012, Spill Your Guts is a hardcore punk band that blends their own unique style of fast, aggressive music. Having played all over China and South East Asia, they’ve joined major festivals and have become heavy hitters in the growing Asian scene. They not only help organize local shows in Shanghai, but have also helped bring interested bands over to tour China. With over 8 member changes in just 4 years they continue to play with the same passion and energy that brought them together since Day 1.
Quick history of the album:
We recorded the album ourselves along with the help of our friend Xander Cheng in Shanghai, who mixed and mastered everything. We spent the better part of the year working with our new lineup to find a sound we would all be happy playing. The result is a heavy mix of fast punk rock with bits of black metal, grind core, and rock & roll. The EP title comes from an inside joke between our band that grew into a catch phrase amongst our friends, which then turned into a song and eventually became the theme for the EP. Full Blast!
Quick history of the artwork:
Like always, we handled the artwork ourselves. It’s a hand drawn reflection of how we see Shanghai. If you look closely you’ll see: pigs floating in the river, a grim reaper wearing a “Shanghai 21” denim vest with a scythe made out of pizza, pollution shooting from the buildings, a soldier’s hand cracking open a beer against the SWFC, an homage to The Instigation (via Bad Brains) with lightning bolts splitting open the Pearl Tower, and there’s even a guy riding his bike somewhere in there.
Physical cassettes are available for order through our bandcamp page, and estimated shipping is September 1st. The cassette includes a digital download of the EP, and a small booklet containing full lyrics and hand drawn artwork.
