Parasitic Twins Interview

Having been more than taken with their the debut EP, ‘All That’s Left To Do Now Is Sleep With Each Other’, it is with pleasure we bring you a recent interview between its creators, British hardcore duo Parasitic Twins, and our guest and friend Elliot Leaver.

For those who may not know who you are, introduce yourselves quickly.

Dom Smith (drums): I’m Dom. Max (guitars, vocals) is the other one. He’s the talented. He’s too busy, and important. You can’t sit with him.

Describe your sound in as few words as possible.

DOOM.

Who are your three biggest influences as a band?

Bongripper. Death. Generic Questions

What’s the meaning behind your band name?

It’s a Dillinger Escape Plan song, and an accurate reflection on our relationship.

How did you approach this release (All That’s Left To Do Now, Is Sleep With Each Other EP) in terms of writing and recording?

We went in to Melrose Yard Studios in York, worked with another dude with exactly the same name as me. He’s way more talented than me also. It was a pleasure. We wanted a live feel, and that’s what we got. We put ourselves under pressure to come up with three songs, it was tough but if you like it, then we’re happy. Do you like it? If you want to know what the songs are about, do check out the lyrics on Bandcamp: https://theparasitictwins.bandcamp.com/

Max is influenced by people he meets, sees and despises, mostly.

Did you try anything differently this time around than with previous efforts?

We both loved being in Seep Away, but we realised that we have to much respect for each other’s completely pointless misery to separate when that band died a tragic, horrible, fiery death. We’re stuck together now, and there’s nothing we can do about it. So, the only thing we did differently this time was work with each other instead of two or three other musicians. It’s been DELIGHTFUL.

What was it like to record the EP?

We recorded it live, and that’s the way (uh-huh, uh-huh) we like it, for now.

Do you have any personal favourite songs on the release?

I like them all. I hope you do too! Wouldn’t it be weird if you published an interview with me saying I hated everything I’ve ever put drums on?

Explain the meaning behind the album title.

Those that know, know. But basically, me and Max have done everything else but sleep with each other, so that’s that. I mean, we’ve never done anything sexual, just to clarify. But, there’s still time, I suppose. He’s so miserable, but I do love him. He has nice pectoral muscles, FYI.

Do you have any dates lined up at present?

Not right now, I’m in a new relationship, not with Max though. Other than that, we play Oldham, Ashton-Under-Lyne, York, Hull and Stockport with our mates in The Carnival Rejects – it’s our first “tour”, and I say it like that, because it isn’t really a tour, but it’s a series of dates, and that’ll be lovely.

What are your favourite songs to perform live?

Massive’ and a bunch of new ones that we’ve not released yet. I’m excited to do those. There’s one called ‘Autopsy’, and it’s very cheery, as you might imagine.

What are the best and worst shows you’ve played to date?

Seep Away played a couple of shows with Hands Off Gretel, they were great. BUT, with this band, we’re looking forward to shows with Pat Butcher, and Carnival Rejects.

Worst shows? Our first band, not (Seep Away), played with a terrible goth band beginning with R and ending in hombus. One of that band’s members was a dick to my friend, and that’s not okay. Aside from that, it wasn’t our most triumphant show. Maybe because there was too much smoke. Goths love smoke.

If you could open for anyone, who would it be?

Code Orange, or Turnstile.

What’s the plan for the rest of 2018?

Celebrating the fact that this interview happened. Thank you for your attention.

SEEP AWAY Make Remix Of Debut Single Available For Free Download & Change Date Of Manchester Show!

Quartet Release Angry Robot Music Remix of ‘Trudge’ Following Exclusive Stream Via Regen Magazine!

Seep Away _RingMaster Review

York/Manchester-based noise-punk band SEEP AWAY have unleashed a remix of their debut single, ‘Trudge’, by US industrial heavyweights Cyanotic as a free download, one day after the track was debuted via Regen Magazine! Cyanotic mastermind Sean Payne had this to say about working on the track: “It’s like grimey UK hardcore on top of digital bangery: angry robot style!”

The collaboration came about following initial interest from SEEP AWAY drummer, Dom Smith: “I’m a massive fan of industrial and alt-electronic music, and the rest of the band are all about finding new ways to develop the sound, so Cyanotic was a natural choice – Sean’s work, and his label Glitch Mode’s output has always been awesome. I’m really proud of this.”

Cyanotic’s previous remix and production credits include: Front Line Assembly, Chemlab and 16volt. For more information on the band, visit: https://www.facebook.com/Cyanotic

SEEP AWAY have announced a small number of shows recently with more to be announced, check them out below. Please note the Manchester show has been changed from May 20th to May 14th. The band will also be recording a new single, and EP for release later in the year:

February 24th – Fulford Arms, York (w/ One Way Street)

April 15th – Fulford Arms, York (w/ InTechnicolour)

May 14th – Star & Garter, Manchester (w/ Deified)

British Noisemongers Seep Away Announce Debut EP

Seepy Crew BW_RingMaster Review

Rising British agro mob Seep Away are to stream their brilliant new self-titled EP via Already Heard!

The stunning four track EP can be heard here – http://alreadyheard.com/post/134913945598/already-heard-ep-premiere-seep-away-seep-away

The record is set for release on December 11th, and can be picked up via SA’s Bandcamp page – https://seepaway.bandcamp.com.

The news comes off the back of the York/Manchester-based noise-punks debut single “Trudge”, which was released earlier this month. Sporting a fabulously unpolished sound, rife with angular vocals and coarse guitars; the band’s raw, punkish aura sits somewhere between prime Melvins and the more aggressive moments of Shining (NO) & Bongripper.

Guitarist Max Watt comments: “These songs come from the darkest places in our minds. They are our way of expressing our heaviest thoughts through really, really f***ing noisy tunes. Hopefully some people dig it, but we understand if they don’t because well… it’s all pretty damn abrasive, really.”

SEEP AWAY is: Jay Sillence (lead vocals), Max Watt (guitar, vocals), Dani Barge (bass) and Dom Smith (drums)

The band are set to release a full length album in early 2016.
