Download “MANhattan” digital single HERE.
Good to Die Records are thrilled beyond all measure to announce the release of Hold Me…But Not So Tight the new album by power (bottom?) trio Gaytheist. Set for a worldwide release on May 21st – on vinyl, of course – the new full-length finds the three-piece staying the course with an abundance of punchy riffage, huge drums, and Jason Rivera’s arch, limp-wristed take on life and love.
Gaytheist recorded Hold Me… in a whirlwind session earlier this year at Interlace Audio with Stealth Beats producer Stephan Hawkes. Don’t let the brevity of their efforts give the impression that the album will sound rushed and half-assed. Rather, it’s a testament to the tight musicianship between front man and guitarist Jason Rivera and his crack rhythm section Nickolis Parks (drums) and Tim Hoff (bass). Gaytheist is as lean and mean as ever on these 12 songs.
In the meantime, Gaytheist have unleashed lead single “MANhattan” on their Bandcamp page as part of a digital single that also includes a re-recorded version of live favorite “Ock of Rages” from their first record “Pentagrams are Super!”. Both songs plus lyric sheet are only $1.
