West Coast garage punks Flat Worms are somewhat of a supergroup, consisting of drummer Justin Sullivan (Kevin Morby, The Babies), Will Ivy (Dream Boys, Wet Illustrated, Bridez) taking on guitar and vocals with Tim Hellman on bass (Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Sic Alps). The Los.Angeles trio have combined to become an explosive mix greater than the sum of their parts who fuse outer realms psyche exploration with blazing hot punk rock which has listeners enthralled, with many citing their eponymously titled debut as their album of the year for 2017.

Taking a stripped down no gimmicks approach whist in the studio, Flat Worms take no prisoners as they blast through every song with every intention of annihilating their listenership through brutal pneumatic bursts of primal energy which can only be caught by press record on the tape and letting go.

The band became eagerly tipped after announcing their arrival with the ‘Red Hot Sand’ EP in April of 2016. However, it was the release of their self-titled LP in October which has really seen the boys reveal their potential. Unfettered razor-sharp riffs, lacerating distortion layered and overdriven till white hot and whipped around ever accelerating drums; Flat Worms have created a record which takes all the power of their music and somehow captures it on a 12” which feels dangerous to even play.

We are very excited to catch these guys live and experience the ferocity for ourselves, which is lucky because Flat Worms have just announced a couple of unmissable intimate shows which promise to be lit powder kegs of energy and excitement. From the self titled LP “Flat Worms” on Castle Face Records.
