3Teeth’s New Song Won’t “Degrade” Their Tour with Tool this Fall

0

It’s industrial time, folks. Get ready to don your fanciest, most complicated, latex bondage gear and head out to a show, because Los Angeles-based 3Teeth are back with a new single to tantalize your ear canals.

Their new track, “Degrade,” capitalizes on the band’s signature blend of industrial and metal while simultaneously offering up stinging commentary on society and mankind. The track isn’t quite as heavy as some of 3Teeth’s other material; it’s certainly lacking the bite of past singles like “Slavegod” and “Sell Your Face.” But what it lacks in bite it more than makes up for with groove and atmosphere. If this track is going to set the pace for the new album, then I would expect that fans can look for a more mood-driven release when compared to past material.

While 3Teeth aren’t necessarily reinventing the genre, it’s nice to hear a fresh approach. Aside from familiar acts like Combichrist, I felt like industrial’s potency was disappearing from the face of the earth. Maybe I’m just ignorant to the genre, but it’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed an industrial act this much.

If you dig the single and want to catch the act live then you can check out 3Teeth on tour this fall both by themselves and with Tool starting at the end of August. Both bands are known for their assaults on the senses when it comes to live performances, so they ought to be a good mix live. You can check out the tour dates and the video for their new single below.
