Sacramento, CA-based electro-speed metal collective KILL THE PRECEDENT will release their new EP, Some Version of the Truth, on February 24, 2017 via minus HEAD Records. iTunes pre-orders will be available soon, with Bandcamp and Amazon pre-orders live now.
KILL THE PRECEDENT‘s music is often described as dangerous, unpredictable and unexplainable. Their new music video for “Lesser of Two Evils” – directed by Brian Cox of Flarelight Films – follows suit, starring a guy who just can’t seem to find himself a “wholesome girlfriend” through Tinder, no matter how hard he tries! The video depicts the dangers of internet dating and how you can never really trust who is on the other side of the screen. The track itself is violent, vicious and explodes on impact with speedy brutality.

Vocalist Twig the Exfoliator says, “You never really know who you’re going to meet on Tinder, and in this case, who’s to say it went wrong? Maybe that’s exactly what we all need every once in a while – a rude awakening to find out that someone is not the perfect match the internet says they’ll be! You have to be careful out there! When you open yourself up to internet dating, you’re potentially opening yourself up to CRAZY.”
Don’t miss KILL THE PRECEDENT performing at their official CD release party, taking place at Sacramento’s Harlow’s (2708 J Street) this Friday, February 17 at 9:00pm. The show will also feature Horseneck, Peace Killers and The Moans. Tickets are available here, at Royal Peacock Tattoo, or Spanish Fly Hair Garage. The show is 21+ and ticket start at $10.
KILL THE PRECDENT – featuring Twig the Exfoliator [vocals], The Ugly American [vocals], Tapeworm [guitar, electronics], Catastrofiend [guitar, visuals], Jimmy Hazard [guitar], Jon the Jew [bass], and Sgt. Pepper [drums] – raze and shred expectations with a singular style of crossover gonzo gutter thrash fueled by reckless punk abandon on Some Version of the Truth.
Since their formation and the release of 2013’s Dialogues with the Dead, the band has stirred up a furious local following and national fervor. They’ve received acclaim from press and fans alike and their live shows have become the stuff of legend, with the band often appearing in costumes and treating their performances like a theatrical party. One night will be priests versus boy scouts, while the next is cops and robbers or even a zombie beach party!
In late 2016, the KILL THE PRECEDENT entered Pus Caverns in Sacramento, CA with producer Joe Johnston. They quickly cut the Some Version of the Truth‘s seven anthems, composing the singles “Two Way Mirrors” and “Watch What You Think” in the studio.
Ultimately, Some Version of the Truth stands out as smoldering, sizzling, and scorching proof that rock music can still surprise in 2017.
