Kansas City, MO aural-radicals BIG WATER have announced a new LP for May 28th. The aptly named And I’m Out Of Shit To Fuck Up LP will drop via the Reptilian Records (Multicult, Chat Pile) label.
The trio composed of Stephen Pelerito (guitar), Matt Perrin (drums/vocals) and Morgan “Punch” Mabrey (bass/vocals) excel at creating angular and off-kilter screamo (like the Gravity Records / Ebullition kind) that has a metallic punch and sludgy rawk tone.
As the band says “Steve loves to write these crazy cool 13/4 into 9/8 riffs that the rhythm section (Matt and Punch) layer and maximize into a groove.” As for inspirations behind their throat-shredding lyrics on the album Perrin revealed “Curb Your Enthusiasm (“My Name Is Chappie Johnson And I Can’t Open This Damn Pickle Jar”), Mr Show (“24 Is The Highest Number”), a quote from a cop who caught us urinating on a pole as we were unloading a gear (“If I Go Over There, Is It Gonna Be Wet?”) and the repetitive wear of the 8-5 life (“In Spirit It’s A Madcat”).
Before the pandemic the band was able to share stages with such acts as God Mother (SWE), Cult Leader, Exhalants and Bighand/Bigknife who all gave horns up to their work.
Never one’s to sit on the haunches, in addition to Big Water; the members also currently play in other KC outfits, Canyons and BUMMER, and are former members of Regret, The Informer, bluehealer and Gatekeeper.
