Due to COVID-19, Chicago’s Melkbelly has had to reschedule their tour dates. However with that, the band is still set to release their new album Pith in early April. On their new single “Sickeningly Teeth,” the band’s sound alone should get you to preorder the new album.
The driving guitar mixed with the speed slowing and ticking up offers plenty of chunky gaze. The vocals sound like they’re coming from down the hall while the song heads down a more melodic path. The conjoined tones of heavy rock and indie squeal make for a sound like no one else without sounding alien in the process. The video is silly, featuring some interesting ways to show gnarly smiles.
The video can be watched above or on YouTube. The song can be streamed on all streaming sites. Pith can be preordered on multiple formats directly from Carpark Records ahead of its April 03 release. Melkbelly is on tour beginning August 15 in Chicago, IL at Sleeping Village until August 28 in Pittsburgh, PA at Mr Roboto. Their tour dates can be accessed here.
