Prosthetic Records signs Villains; new video debut
Official press release: Fusing aggressive hardcore with their self-branded "noisey street metal" to form "some of the heaviest breakdowns and catchiest grooves the genre has ever seen" (New-Transcendence), the Illinois-based quintet Villains has signed with Prosthetic Records. The group's second album, Freudian Slip, is out now digitally, with physical releases to follow in July. Self-described as the most heartfelt and definitive Villains release to date, Freudian Slip was originally self-released in November. Since then, the album has maintained a consistent presence on iTunes' Top Metal Albums chart. The group has supported the release by embarking on a coast-to-coast tour with fellow Illinois-based metallists Barrier that included a stop at Texas' annual South By So What?! festival. Previously, the band has been seen alongside such acts as The Browning, This or the Apocalypse, Kingmaker, Demolisher, Structures, Betrayal, Counterparts, Gift Giver, Dark Sermon and Monuments, just to name a few. Watch Villains' new music video for the song "Ketamine" below.
