No Teeth to Release 'Wither' EP on Imagination Engine. Announcing EP Launch Party, Limited Edition Physical Formats and Pre-orders too..


Tyneside Doom-pop trio No Teeth release new EP ‘Wither’ through Imagination Engine on Monday 31st July (2017).  This debut release on the new label from No Teeth is a theatrical, David Lynch Drive-in movie of dark Garage/Soul bathed in a deep crimson Grunge/Funk.

Guitarist and lead singer Sam Spencer-Whitbread’s fusion of satirical, imaginative lyrics and catchy, quirky, pop choruses are refreshingly experimental endeavours. Delving deep into diverse subject matter that stimulates the visual cortex to provoke, bemuse and intrigue. Owen Armstrong lays down beats like Portishead’s Deemer or Beastie Boys Mike D, in that ‘Time for Livin’ / ‘Sabotage era. Arron Robinson brings a throbbing Bass which grooves like a nonchalant Novoseilic, sizzling underneath the noise like Kim Gordons sonic snarl. Filthy Funk with Punk peaks.



This rhythm section of Owen and Arron when forged with Sam’s guitar and vocal, craft a sound like The Black Angels met ‘Bleach’ era Nirvana, were glazed in Ty Seagall and blazed over a Soundgardens’ worth. ‘Wither’ is a five track EP of rhythmic, raw, surf’s up rock that spirals ritualistically through smoked southern blues, melting into a macabre, mercurial psychedelia. The playfully intolerant ‘Mother’ is a specially recorded version of a No Teeth classic exclusively reworked for this release. Where the B-movie horror of ‘Costume Party’, stomping end of night encore ‘Wither’, Tankard clank and swagger of ‘She’s Lizard’ and the acidic disintegration that despairs inside murderous closer ‘Serotonin’ are all brand new tracks.


 The No Teeth – Wither EP is available to pre-order now via the labels Bandcamp page. The pre-order gives an immediate digital download of ‘Mother (Wither Version) from the EP on ordering the physical or digital release. The two formats of physical release include a series of fifteen limited edition cassettes, each of which features black withered spines hand painted on white shells. A crystal clear cassette case, double sided negative sleeves featuring artwork by the band and photo by Johnny Haynes, digital download card, exclusive insert and Imagination Engine records label sticker. The CD version is part of a series of twenty five limited edition compact discs each of which features black withered spines printed on the disc face, full printed sleeves featuring artwork by the band and photo by Johnny Haynes, digital download card, exclusive insert and Imagination Engine records label sticker.
