'Bye Bye Boy' is lifted from The Gluts new album 'Ungrateful Heart', out now on Fuzz Club
Milan-based group The Gluts are today sharing a new video for ‘Bye Bye Boy’, lifted from the band’s fourth album, ‘Ungrateful Heart’, which is out now via Fuzz Club Records. Whilst their previous albums have traded in an explosive psychedelic noise-rock, ‘Ungrateful Heart’ is an album rooted primarily in 70s punk and 80s hardcore. Now released with an accompanying video directed by Brace Beltempo, ‘Bye Bye Boy’ is a piece of hedonistic post-punk with the band’s tendencies towards ear-piercing feedback still very much in tow. You can stream the video below.
Released earlier this month, The Gluts say that ‘Ungrateful Heart’ primarily take cues from the likes of Fugazi, Gang of Four, the PiL-Pistols canon and the Campana brothers’ long adoration of Italian and American hardcore punk. Laid down over a tireless week living side by side and working in the studio around the clock, they recorded the album with Dutch producer and close collaborator Bob de Wit (A Place To Bury Strangers, Gnod, The Sonics). On the sessions, the intensity of which is mirrored in the fierce uncompromising attitude of the music itself, the band said: “Bob’s contribution to this album was essential. He pushed us beyond our limits. It was difficult, we can’t hide it, but it really was worth it.”
In support of ‘Ungrateful Heart’, the band are currently in the middle of a European tour. Having picked up a notorious reputation for their powerful, tinnitus-inducing live shows in the years since their 2013 formation, The Gluts have previously toured around the UK, Europe and South Africa and performed at a number of international festivals, including Eurosonic (NL), Fuzz Club Eindhoven (NL), Label Mates (UK), MiAMI Festival (IT) and Endless Daze (ZA). ‘Ungrateful Heart’ arrives following their 2019 LP ‘Dengue Fever Hypnotic Trip’.
