“Meat Wave have a truly heavy punk style that delivers addicitive raw power chords and TUNES!” – MarkMeets

Having now kicked off their autumn run of UK/EU dates with an appearance at Iceland’s Airwaves Festival followed by shows with Protomartyr across the continent, Chicago’s Meat Wave are proud to present ‘Cosmic Zoo’ as the latest single taken from their second full-length album, Delusion Moon (out now on SideOneDummy), as well as debuting a brand new b-side, ‘Symmy’.

A blistering master class in abrasive post-punk made to feel poppy, ‘Cosmic Zoo’ is the kind of get-in-your-head-and-stay-there hit that propelled bands like Cloud NothingsFIDLAR and Japandroids to worldwide success.

‘Symmy’, meanwhile, rolls along with all the pent-up, yet refined, urgency of the Wipers – who Meat Wave covered with such effect on this year’s Brother EP. Speaking of the track, the band say: “Symmy was recorded during the Delusion Moon session. It was a really new song so we just kind of went for it. It’s about the Phoenix Lights in the 90s, when a bunch of people saw a really huge UFO above the city and the governor played it off like nothing happened. Look it up!”

More about Meat Wave:

Meat Wave are constantly being asked about their name, but they get why you would. Pulled from a classic headline in The Onion, the Chicago-based trio will release their new album Delusion Moon via new home SideOneDummy Records on September 18.

Formed in 2011 by the trio of Chris Sutter (vocals/guitar), Joe Gac (bass) and Ryan Wizniak (drums), the three punk scene stalwarts came together and, just a year later, released its self-titled full-length debut. That first collection of songs was a master class in abrasive post-punk made to feel poppy, simultaneously referencing Hot Snakes, the disgruntled lyricism of Shellac and a little bit of The Jesus Lizard’s fire-spitting sneer just for good measure.

Now, following this year’s lauded Brother EP – which saw release via our own Brace Yourself Records – the band return invigorated: as confrontational as ever, with an increasingly ferocious live show (which you can catch on a whole host of live shows across the US and UK this autumn), ready to make their biggest statement to date. The planets – and yes, moons – might at last have aligned for Meat Wave.
