GALACTIC CANNIBAL (Milwaukee, WI / Chicago, IL) is excited to announce that its debut full-length, We’re Fucked, will see a June 4, 2013 release on 12-inch vinyl from Underground Communique, Lost Cat and Encapsulated Records. The digital version of the album will be handled by Hewhocorrupts Inc.
To celebrate today’s news, the band and labels have teamed up with the venerable Punknews.org to premier a brand new track from the LP. Swing by the site to listen to an exclusive stream of the song “Invisible.”
Featuring Direct Hit! frontman Nick Woods on bass and his brother, noted Milwaukee noise artist Peter J Woods, on vocals, Galactic Cannibal cranks out nine bombastic cuts of hardcore punk that’s equal parts adrenaline, melody and sneering attitude. Self-described as “Misfits meets Man Is The Bastard” – but also bringing to mind groups such as Dillinger Four, Fucked Up and even Andrew WK – the quintet fires on all cylinders for the duration of its debut, pulling back only enough to let the fist-pounding rhythms, blazing guitar and catchy choruses take hold of the listeners’ eardrums.
Earlier this year Galactic Cannibal released a four-song EP digitally and on tape, which you can purchase or download for free on Bandcamp.
In other news, the five piece will be playing a handful of shows over the course of the next month, including an appearance this weekend at Stay Sweet Fest in Richmond, VA.
