Gnarwhal Share “Being Kidding,” ‘Crucial’ Out May 5th

Gnarwhal are sharing their new single “Being Kidding” today, a wild and explosive ride through noisy math punk and agitated post-hardcore. The song comes from the duo’s upcoming record, Crucial, due out May 12th via Exploding In Sound Records.

The duo of Chappy Hull (vocals/guitar) and Tyler Coburn (drums) recorded the album at Weenie Hut Jr. in Nashville, TN with Seth Engel (Options, Nnamdi Ogbonnaya, Great Deceivers) and mastered by Michael J. Thomas (Grass Is Green, Empress Of). The album finds Gnarwhal digging into their complex math rock roots while embracing more straight forward post-punk, an album that pulls as much influence from bands like Hella and Lightning Bolt as it does Drive Like Jehu and Shellac. It’s a wild ride from two of the DIY scene’s most impeccable musicians. The band are out in support of the record on a full US tour together with Pile (complete dates below).
