No Teeth Share Official Video for Wither



NO TEETH the doom-pop, alt-indie trio from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne are known for fizzing acidic distortion and Post-Punk percussion over psych’d out vocals as the bands trademark sound. You can see and hear why in the new official video for Wither, the title track from the band’s debut EP on Imagination Engine which is out now. 

"five tracks of heavy, invective fuelled music that takes noise as its base but throws in some garage punk, doom, stoner and hardcore" (Dayz of Purple and Orange).

"The bands raw energy riffs and socially aware lyrics show that grunge satire is growing more intelligent" (NARC. Magazine).


The video is blackened and surreal mirroring the audio track itself and is an exclusive commission by the band from Lisa Boardman. Lisa is a multimedia/video artiste whose work thematically centres around contrasting bizarre imagery with every day scenarios in the hope of unearthing the dark and humorous subtext of modern life. Her work attracts growing levels of interest having created and collaborated on projects with underground club night Sour Times, as well as the bands Avacet and Fold to name but a few. See Lisa’s work and reach out on Vimeo.

The EP is available on CD/CS/DL from our labels Bandcamp and Big Cartel stores NOW.
