We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Austin rock band Funeralizer‘s new song “RIC” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming self-titled debut album, which is scheduled to be released on October 28th through Crayo KC.
The group, a trio featuring drummer Trivett Wingo (ex-The Sword), guitarist David DiDonato (Ultimate Dragons) and bassist Clarke Wilson (Bangaar, Those Peabodys), play music that is at once, eclectic, electric and LOUD.
Wingo comments on the song: “I love this song, ‘RIC’. It kicks off our upcoming album and I think it’s one of our best. To me, it captures the essence of the math rock thing that we were all doing in Richmond, Virginia back in the 90s, like Breadwinner and Sliang Laos and all that stuff.”
“The idea behind Funeralizer is that everything is super concentrated. No fluff,” comments Wingo. “It seems like the best parts of most songs can be summed up in about a minute and a half. The goal is to keep things dense. Boredom is the enemy.” He adds, “I’m excited to get this record out ‘cuz I feel like, for the most part, it doesn’t actually sound like anything anyone else is doing.”
Recorded by Bryan Richie (The Sword) at The Berry in Austin, Funeralizer delivers twelve terse tracks that swell with Sturm und Drang, discordance and dissonance. The album’s arresting cover art was created by Joby Ford, guitarist for The Bronk / Mariachi el Bronx.
