Through an industrialized mill of grating guitars, warped electronics, war-torn percussion, and demonically catchy vocalizations, Uniform have bulldozed a path to the forefront of underground music. The trio – Michael Berdan (vocals, synths), Ben Greenberg (guitar, production), and Mike Sharp (drums) - delivered their most powerful offering to date with 2020s
Shame. Full of neck-snapping riffs, guttural distortion, percussive maelstrom, anguished howls, and spiteful screams towards oblivion, Shame follows characters who walk a Sisyphean circle of existential malaise doomed to repeat yesterday’s vices without the promise of a better tomorrow.

The lead-up to Shame proves just as intriguing as any of its characters’ exploits. Born in 2013, Uniform’s debut LP Perfect World (2015) was released on 12XU in the States and ALTER abroad. Following its success they migrated to Sacred Bones. Wake in Fright (2017) was followed by The Long Walk (2018) which solidified their place as purveyors of industrial noise. After touring with the likes of Deafheaven and Boris, they joined forces with The Body for a pair of collaborative albums – Mental Wounds Not Healing (2018) and Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back (2019) – as well as the live release, Live at the End of the World (2020). While Shame thematically revolves around an anti-hero, the album shows Uniform to be both champions of, and victors in, pushing boundaries.

Flickering imagery haunts, concealing the forgotten past of this vampyric nightmare known as Psywarfare. Distorted, broken sounds from the deteriorated reels of many lost, 1920s silent era horror film devours the listener within the blackened, grit-pocked nightmare that is conjured throughout. Dilapidated victrola players warp reality horrifically unrecognizable, while distressed memories shatter themselves across the weathered moving picture screen. Blurred glimpses of unfocused darkness splinters its way through your innermost fears. Spectres illuminate against a barrage of horrific sound, cornered inside your dogged imagination.

Dwid Hellion unleashes yet another abomination of sonic terror. Entirely devoid of genre restrictions or expectation. Designed to infect and infest, like a parasitic worm burrowing deep within the unsuspecting psyche of humanity.

Relapse recording artist, Psywarfare rejects and inverts the acceptable methodology of music, contorting its creation into an inevitable sound weapon.

Pronounced 'CLIT DRIP' for those confused or too shy to ask, CLT DRP have been turning heads. The genre-bending trio's non-apologetic and yet playful approach has seen them garner praise from Kerrang, Metal Hammer, Visions, New Noise, TheLineOfBestFit, Gigwise and radio plays by BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 and KEXP. Their music gets you moving, invites you in with power, and makes you question your environment and yourself.

Fresh off of the road from The National Lottery's Revive Live Tour with The Music Venue Trust, the band embark on a European tour in early October this year, which will see them visit the UK, Eastern Europe and Central Europe.
