Earth Tongue Unveil Single / Video 'Out Of This Hell'

Currently conquering overseas stages on a monumental 42 date tour of EU and UK (playing alongside Acid King, 1000Mods, Brant Bjork Trio and Ty Segall), Aotearoa's Earth Tongue elevate our Friday with the lurid riff-worship of their new single 'Out of this Hell'. Gussie Larkin and Ezra Simons go full mondo horror mode with this one, sounding not unlike a pair of town criers possessed as they spread dark word of the hooved one's mighty return, with cheeky nods to Claudio Simonetti's classic squelching synth work.

Directed by Levi Strauss Cranston, shot on 16mm film by Simons, produced by the group and made with support from NZ On Air, the accompanying clip is a spine-chilling, blood-drenched cinematic masterwork, starring a glamorous Larkin wandering a remote west coast landscape overwhelmed by cult dread. This is how it's done — smash play on 'Out of this Hell' (in the proud local lineage of Timberjack's 1971 pagan mantra 'Come To The Sabbat') and look forward to the now Berlin-based duo's new album Great Haunting, out in full on 14th June via In The Red Records...

"I couldn’t wait to unleash some screams like a wannabe scream queen. I even cried real tears for this! There’s something a little spooky about the west coast, particularly at night when you’re standing in the cold wielding a knife for the camera. It’s such a wild, remote coastline and there weren’t any houses or people around for miles. I think that helped me with channelling that sense of isolation and turmoil". — Gussie Larkin

'Great Haunting' releases on Friday 14th June via In The Red Records. RSVP for the 'Great Haunting' Listening Party HERE.
