San Diego-based deathgrind masters CATTLE DECAPITATION will release a seven-inch single this summer. “Your Disposal” features the B-side “An Exposition of Insides”, which was previously available only as a Japanese bonus track on the band’s most recent album, “Monolith Of Inhumanity”. The single is available (both black and clear vinyl) for order on-line onIndieMerchStore.com for $5.50, as well as in a bundle with a t-shirt for $18.99. Fans attending this year’s Summer Slaughter Tour can grab their copy at the band’s merch booth throughout the tour.
Vocalist Travis Ryan comments: “We noticed a lot of people were dismayed to find out there was a track available out there on a Japanese version of ‘Monolith Of Inhumanity’ that nobody outside of Japan had ever heard before. When it hit YouTube, that’s when we started getting emails from fans. We noticed the lyrics weren’t inside that version or available anywhere at all so that gave us the idea of throwing it on a B-side and releasing a 7″ vinyl single for ‘Your Disposal’ with the song ‘An Exposition Of Insides’! We feel that ‘Monolith’ is the mother of all of our releases so far and I thought it’d be funny to make it look like she just squirted out a baby and that’s what this little guy looks like. Just in time for Summer Slaughter!”
The most extreme tour of the year has returned with its most devastating and anticipated lineup yet. The seventh annual Summer Slaughter Tour, presented by Indie Merch Store, ESP and Guitar World, is now officially slated to run from July 19 through August 24. It features such heavyweights as THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, ANIMALS AS LEADERS,PERIPHERY, NORMA JEAN, CATTLE DECAPITATION, THE OCEAN,REVOCATION, AEON and two other bands.
CATTLE DECAPITATION‘s latest album, “Monolith Of Inhumanity”, sold around 2,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 6 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
Released on May 8, 2012, “Monolith Of Inhumanity” was produced byDave Otero of Denver’s Flatline Audio and sees the band exploring innovative new techniques in songwriting without abandoning their signature formula of confrontational audio wreckage and self-loathing lyrical content.
