Alternately unpredictable, calculated, premeditated, and spontaneous, Swollen Teeth are a whirlwind of invention. The collective announce their debut EP today, a brutal, visceral, roundhouse kick to the gut of the modern heavy music landscape produced by Slipknot’s Sid Wilson.
The self-titled debut EP will drop on Wednesday, April 26th, 2023, and will be the first release to come out on Blowed Out Records, a brand new label venture, also announced today, between legendary producer, Ross Robinson (Korn, The Cure, Slipknot, Glassjaw, At The Drive In and countless others), artist Ghostemane and Bill Armstrong (SideOneDummy).
Today’s announcement is highlighted by the release of the EP title track and its accompanying music video. Watch the video for “SWOLLENTEETH” below.
Speaking on today’s announcement, Sid Wilson shares:
“After all these years, when I thought I’d never find another group of humans outside of Slipknot that knew the formula to transparency thru frequencies, and not thru appearance, I discovered Swollen Teeth. This is trü-Metal”!
Ross Robinson adds:
“Sid and I listening to roughs in Iowa, emotions ran high – I found myself getting chills throughout my body to that familiar molten metal pulse I love so much – this time that force is known as ‘Swollen Teeth’ – hunger + talent have that vibration I can’t ignore – Bill, Eric, and I (‘Blowed Out Records’) are totally committed to rip it out there for the long haul…”

The sound, the look, the atmosphere, the lore. Swollen Teeth are as much a ritual as a performance, summoning primal ferocity in clouds of intrigue with a thundering rumble. Each musical outburst arrives shrouded in mystery, enveloped by a sense of dread, with passion and purpose. Heavy percussion, riffs, punk gang chants, dive bombs, turntables, breakdowns, shrieks, guttural screams, and powerfully unashamed anthemic melodies coalesce in Swollen Teeth. The collective absorbs the raw intensity of the most potent subculture and spits it back with a determined uniqueness. They’ve spent countless hours in the lab, lobbing out occasional missives online like Molotov cocktails. Each of the scattered, chopped up, and explosive clips unleashed to the world, culled from a handful of shadowy live appearances, built anticipation for the group’s inevitable ascension. They travel in our dimension but are not of it. This is otherworldly chaos without apology.
