Swiss dynamos The Erkonauts have released the official video for “Machine” (watch below). The song is taken from the upcoming Kaotoxin Records reissue of I Did Something Bad.
Metalsucks recently praised I Did Something Bad in stating: “It is, perhaps, a bit reductive to say The Erkonauts are picking up where System Of A Down left off, but the comparison is ultimately apt: I Did Something Bad fe-ruiningly hooky, mosh-inducingly aggro, and philosophically bleak-yet-witty. We can assume from the album art that these dudes are Kubrick fans, and it shows in their approach to music.”
The Erkonauts signed with Kaotoxin Records in August 2015 for the worldwide release of I Did Something Bad, which was originally debuted as a DIY effort a year ago. The album was mixed and mastered by Samael’s Drop, who lent his little-known ukulele skills to the recording. The demand for the album was so high, the band had to repress it twice. The band, which features two ex-members of Sybreed, has toured across Europe, the U.S. and Asia.
The Kaotoxin Records reissue of I Did Something Bad features two brand new tracks not included on the original release and drops February 12. For pre-orders and additional merch visit this location.
The Erkonauts bring something fresh to the table with a sound that lies somewhere between mid-90s Suicidal Tendencies, early System Of A Down, and Primus, with a smart, progressive, alt-rock / metal / punk fusion of their very own.
