Lavotchkin gigs and free single!

LAVOTCHKIN offer up ‘The Werther Effect’ from their ‘Widow Country’ EP for free & hit the road with Throats!

Newcastle noisenik’s LAVOTCHKIN are remarkably still one of the UK underground’s best-kept secrets, but that is about to change with the release of their Jason Sanderson (Rolo Tomassi, 65 Days Of Static) produced and Alan Douches (Mastodon, Converge) mastered EP, ‘Widow Country’.

Having clocked up shows in the UK and Europe alongside the likes of The Hope Conspiracy, Bring Me The Horizon, Trash Talk and Daughters, Lavotchkin are no strangers to hard work, with their relentless work on the live circuit has earned them a reputation as a ferocious must see live act.

In the run up to the release and their tour with Throats, the band have made ‘The Werther Effect’ from the EP available for free download from:

According to vocalist Simon Tittley, ‘Widow Country’, has a “degradation theme, not only of our surroundings, but within ourselves.” Other topics addressed include right wing Christian society and teenage suicide and the media’s clumsy reporting of it.

Guitarist, Martin Downing, continues, “Reality and our surroundings are a massively important influence within Lavotchkin. The everyday challenges of day-to-day life, whilst balancing the creative outlet that helps you forget about all the fucked up shit going on in the world. It’s definitely a big influence and will always keep us a pissed off band. To sum up the general feeling around Lavotchkin’s pissed off nature: it’s a bleak world that we all live in, close by as well as far a field. However, life’s too short to be sitting at home pissed off at the world, when you could be channelling that negative energy into something positive/creative. An exorcism metaphorically speaking I guess, though a very enjoyable one with a lot of adventures in the case of our chosen outlet.”
