FREE STUFF: Japanese Voyeurs give away ‘Smother Me’ ahead of UK tour

They’ve been off recording their debut album with Gggarth but Japanese Voyeurs are giving away a whole song for FREE ahead of their cancelled tour with Against Me and F*cked Up. You can get ‘Smother Me’ for nish, as long as you whisper your email address into their ear. As long as you understand that by ‘whisper’, we mean ‘type’ and by ‘ear’ we mean ‘mailing list’. Durr.

This is cut ‘n’ pasted directly from the press release. It is nonsense that they think you want to know. If you think it’s nonsense, just scroll down and get the mp3. Nobody will judge you.

Singer Romily Alice explains “We wanted to give away ‘Smother Me’ as an introduction to the record because it’s both brutally heavy yet very tender – it’s one of the slower tracks of the record influenced by some of the doom bands that we’re very into like Witchsorrow, The Melvins, Sloth and Earth.

“It feels good to finally let people hear something from the album. We had such an incredible time recording with GGGarth (The Melvins, RATM, The Jesus Lizard)in Canada and mixing with Alex Newport (ATD-I, Pissed Jeans, Male Bonding)in Brooklyn; just being able to work with such incredibly talented people was such a gift, so to have everything done and be able to start to let people hear it is a great feeling.”

This is the crazy widget you get the track through. We’re sure they could’ve done a tidier job of designing this monstrosity but that’s not our jobs and we don’t want them to get eggy. Just give them your email address and forever be subjected to a barrage of reasonably useful information.
