Neurot Recordings presents Oakland, California-based dark punk trio Tension Span, announcing the band’s debut recordings, “The Future Died Yesterday”, arriving on September. 30th, 2022
Tension Span unites Noah Landis (Neurosis, Christ On Parade), Geoff Evans (Asunder), and Matt Parrillo (Dystopia, Kicker). Using the musical language of their past, the dark punk of their early bands, Tension Span delivers a new album to Neurot Recordings that infuses classic elements of punk and post-punk, and sounds both urgent and personal, speaking truth to the bleak realities of today’s socio-political collapse, and the angst and identity crisis it brings. Somehow within the fabric of these themes of stress, fear and rage, there is a feeling of underlying hope, that there is something beautiful in the struggle.
Recorded during the isolation of covid-19, the trio crafted “The Future Died Yesterday”, a riveting album that sounds both varied and cohesive, combining musical and emotional heaviness with melody, samples, and synth. The album was recorded by Tension Span, mixed by Noah Landis, mastered by Bob Weston and Greg Obis at Chicago Mastering Service. With artwork by Neil Grimmer, John Yates, and Matt Parrillo.
RIYL: Killing Joke, New Model Army, T.S.O.L., Subhumans, Conflict, Rudimentary Peni, and The Wraith
