6 months after the successful premiere of their music video here on IDIOTEQ, and the early premiere of their amazing split 7”, southern California’s funky soul punk rockers from EASTER TEETH are back on the road. The band will be touring the Western US and have announced plans to re-press their debut record on tape! Check out their side of the split with Houston pop punk band MORAL MONSTERS below, grab it through Veritas Vinyl and see the dates and locations of the upcoming trek below.
Some of brothers Josh and Tim’s earliest music memories are of riding in back of the station wagon, listening to their mom’s cassette tapes of James Brown, Sam & Dave, The Rascals, etc. As time rolled on and they got into punk, hardcore, and mathrock, their passion for soul music never left them. EASTER TEETH is their foolish attempt to gather up all that they love about both soul and punk, throw it all on the floor of DIY spaces all over the nation, and see who picks it up – without coming off like an incoherent novelty. Since 2009, they self-released two EP’s before Veritas Vinyl signed them and released their 2013 full-length, Being Alone With Your Thoughts is for Inmates, which enjoyed good reviews from the likes of Razorcake, Independent Music News UK, the Santa Barbara Independent, and more. In January 2016 Veritas put out a split 7” with EASTER TEETH and labelmates Moral Monsters that is getting national and international attention. To promote the record, EASTER TEETH premiered their first ever music video for their new song Watch Me Get My Worship On. EASTER TEETH’s old-skool work ethic has won them a modest road-resume that thus far includes 1 US tour, 2 west coast, 3 southwest, 2 music fests (New Noise and DIY Fest III) and countless weekend warrior mini-tours, one-offs, and local shows. Now they are finishing up recording 10 more songs to release in 2016.
