ca
CHILD ABUSE "Trouble In Paradise"
LP / CD / ULTIMATE EDITION

-------------------------------
LINE UP:
-------------------------------

Tim Dahl
: bass, vocals
Eric Lau: keyboards, vocals
Oran Canfield: drums

Recorded by Andrew Barker with Eli Crews
Mixed by Ben Greenberg
Mastered by Alex Theoret
Cover art by Albert Oehlen

-------------------------------
 

x After hearing CHILD ABUSE, the trio's moniker seems more like a reference to violence inflicted by a toddler rather than upon one. The group's growled vocals, manic riffs and copious double-kick drumming nod to death metal. These loopy tones align with Tim Dahl's fuzzed-out bass and Oran Canfield's dense, swinging beats to create a highly technical sound that's also weirdly playful. - Time Out New York

In their ten years of existence, CHILD ABUSE have become much more than a jarring name. The NY trio has fused elements of Noise, Death Metal, Free Jazz, and Grind (among other things) into something entirely their own, all the while becoming one of the most innovative, and polarizing bands in New York. "Trouble in Paradise", the band's third full-length release, expands on their forays into uncharted musical territory.

--------------------------------------
CLIFF NOTES:
--------------------------------------

o Though Child Abuse does their best not to sound like anyone else, or fit into any genre's, open minded listeners of other genre defying bands such as Doomsday Student, Ruins, Flying Luttenbachers, Gorguts, Stockhausen, Univers Zero, Man is the Bastard, Meshuggah, Eric Dolphy, Butthole Surfers, Ocrilim, Gay Beast, Cecil Taylor, Captain Beefheart, etc...may or may not hear some similarities in Child Abuse's music.

o Includes an additional bonus track found only on the CD release

o Recorded by Andrew Barker and Eli Crews

o Tim Dahl is also currently performing in Retrovirus alongside Lydia Lunch, Bob Bert and Weasel Walter.

o Child Abuse tours worldwide: European tour begins September 2014, West Coast USA tour Spring 2015


--------------------------------------
PRESS QUOTES:
--------------------------------------
o
"New York's Child Abuse is a gloriously confrontational band, mixing the incoherent glugs of death metal, the dissonant meander of 12-tone composition, the atonal squonk of free-jazz, blasts of ucky noise, and a wet gob of old- fashioned punk rock." - The Village Voice

o
"This is some gloopy, mutant shit right here: a kaleidoscopic rush of snot greens, crackling electric blues and putrid mustard yellows mainlined straight through a jagged hole in the skull to force terrifying visions of something that’s all blurting, blunt-force horror, oogly-boogly keyboard shriek and pant-pissing threats and obscenities into your brain. Mere words can’t much do it justice...". - Rock Sound Magazine

o
"Somewhere in between noise, metal, and avant-jazz lies Child Abuse, the wildman trio from NYC." - Brooklyn Vegan

o
"Child Abuse revels in the craft that underlies its work. Despite the band’s harsh approach, the presence of thought and structure quickly emerge out of the maelstrom. And the fact that the band is drawing from many different stylistic wells at once should entice listeners across a wide range of tastes—as long as those listeners aren't bound by the tribal provincialism that plagues so many scenes" - New York Press

--------------------------------------
TRACK LISTING:

1) 300 Passengers Get Sick
2) Michael Landon
3) Casual Fridays
4) Straight Out of Compton

DOOMSDAY STUDENT "A Walk Through Hysteria Park"

-------------------------------
LINE UP:
-------------------------------

Eric Paul: Vocals
Craig Kureck: Drums
Paul Vieira: Guitar
Stephen Mattos: Guitar


-------------------------------
 

x In the unhinged tradition of Arab on Radar & Chinese Stars, Doomsday Student caterwauls like four refrigerators dropped down an elevator shaft. As drums push the music forward, spiraling guitars & crazed singing use the tools of rock to dismantle rock, to make an alarm of rock, to make simultaneously songs with hooks & riffs & all that shit & also these little splitting-off universes of paranoia & hysteria & the ecstasy only exploding people truly feel.

When I listen to A Walk Through Hysteria Park on headphones in public I find myself laughing in that way that makes people cross the street away from me, that makes my spine feel made of broken bottles & soaked band aids. And I am better this way. I am more awake, more able to be in the terror & jaggedness & joy of what it is to be. Doomsday Student is a wake up call to anyone who thinks the world merely works.

Doomsday Student’s second record, A Walk Through Hysteria Park, is being released on October 28, 2014. The music of Doomsday Student is played by Eric Paul (of Arab On Radar, The Chinese Stars), Stephen Mattos (of Arab On Radar, Athletic Automaton, & Chrome Jackson), Craig Kureck (of Arab On Radar, The Chinese Stars), & Paul Vieira (of The Chinese Stars).

- Biography by Mathias Svalina, author of Destruction Myth, I Am A Very Successful Entrepreneur, and The Explosions..

CLIFF NOTES:
--------------------------------------

o Recommended if you like: Arab On Radar, The Chinese Stars, The Locust, Lightning Bolt, Liars, U.S. Maple, Harry Pussy

o Members of the bands Arab On Radar, Athletic Automaton and The Chinese Stars

o Doomsday Student tours worldwide (West coast tour with Retox in October 2014, East coast headlining tour will follow in November, Midwest headlining tour in early spring 2015, European headlining tour summer 2015)

o Cover art by Brian Chipendale of Lightning Bolt

--------------------------------------
PRESS QUOTES:
--------------------------------------
o
"Bat shit. Terrifying speeds, Matching outfits. 4 guys just blasting it as hard as possible, and with the chops to make the magic happen all the while. Throbbing, writhing, undulating. The band. Their audience" - Boston Hassle

o
"Doomsday Student is some of the loudest shit ever and an amazing take on post-hardcore. They wear all black, except for their orange shoes. Eric Paul is one of the most incredible frontman of any band ever, self-flagellating all over the stage, eyes bulging out of his shaven skull and screaming. They have really nice equipment, and they aren't just playing: every screaming guitar note and drum beat is not only turned up to 11, but maxed out on every channel". - Impose Magazine

o
"Eric’s voice. It’s what makes the music more creepy than just aggressive. The creepiness is important. It’s hard to be tough and creepy at the same time. I'm not a tough guy and I don’t really like tough things. And these guys are making heavy, intense music that isn't masculine in the conventional sense. And it’s music that’s really sexual without being “sexy.” And it’s the kind of thing I love hearing at a party, but there’s no way you’d call it party music." - Dan Deacon - guest editor of Magnet Magazine

o
"Like singer Eric Paul's other band, The Chinese Stars, Arab On Radar are just one of those bands that are purely addictive. When you first listen to either band you think that they must be absolutely bonkers and you are not sure what to make of it. It's not really experimental, nor straight forward and there is this weirdo element you just cannot shake. But once you have indulged in these Skin Graft acts more than once you cannot stop" - Berlin Craze
