Pre Strike Sweep

In 2016, the ever-prolific Ty Segall announced the formation of a new band with FUZZ’s Charles Moothart and Chris Shaw of Ex-Cult.Calling themselves GØGGS, the gang released an agressive LP aping the ’80s hardcore on which they were raised. Now, with Michael Anderson joining them on bass, the supergroup has announced their second album offering, Pre Strike Sweep , Gøggs add a new level of primordial anxiety to their already catastrophic symphony.

Shaw handled the lyrics, while the band collaborated to create its fierce, spine-rattling arrangements. The title track, which the band has shared alongside the announcement, unfolds across four chaotic minutes, with a steady river of distortion coursing through a peripatetic storm of squeals, effects, and one killer solo.

recorded and mixed in 2017 by Gøggs guitarist and co-founder Ty Segall, the album explores the damaging affects of modern life before blowing them up one by one. singer Chris Shaw uses terms like “space rinse” and “roadside surgery” to inform the listener that this is a strange and different trip, far and away from the “glendale junkyard” he romanticized in 2016 on their self-titled album. in fact, all expectations brought on by that acclaimed debut are crushed into dust, revealing a new standard by which the Gøggs march thumps.

Pre Strike Sweep is the title track off of GØGGS second album. Out 9/28/18 on In The Red Records.
