Now just days from full contamination of the human population is the malicious contagion known as Untoward, borne of Portland-based vermin, RABBITS.

Through RABBITS’s blaring amplification and sarcastic, parasitic methodology, the outsider trio unloads nearly a half-hour of their most centered but dynamic aggravation yet on Untoward. Exhaustingly tracked live to tape at Type Foundry, in Portland for the full hometown experience in one day and mixed in two, the engineering duties on Untoward were tag-teamed by Jeremy Romagna (Trees, Tecumseh, Wives) and Fester (Nux Vomica, Usnea, Stoneburner), collectively responsible for the majority of the band’s previous recordings, then mastered by Ryan Foster at Foster Mastering, Untoward will be released on August 12th via Lamb Unlimited, the label spawned of Chris Spencer of Unsane and Alan Schneider of No More Records.

American Aftermath is offering up an exclusive full-on romp through the spanking machine that is Untoward at THIS LOCATION.

Pre-orders for the digital delivery as well as 12” 150-gram black wax cut at 45 RPM guaranteed to rip your face off are available HERE.

RABBITS will spread the illness at the upcoming three-day, seven-show, twenty-five-band D.I.Y. “anti-fest” dubbed Festicide, August 15th through 17th, booked by RABBITS and their resurrected outsider label, Eolian Empire, the Untoward release show to be a free matinee with their Eolian cohorts Honduran, Diesto, and Towers. The following week, Seattle gets hit hard, as the band will invade the studios at local radio station KEXP on Saturday, August 23rd for a live session which will be broadcast at the stroke of midnight that night. While the transmission is being prepared that evening, RABBITS will raid the town to perform with Prizehog and The Great Goddamn. The next day RABBITS and Prizehog as well as Same-Sex Dictator will perform a matinee show at Marginal Way Skatepark, which also includes a gnarly skate contest and BBQ. And in October they return to Europe with true Norwegian noise-rockers Årabrot, with nine shows currently slabbed and more coming together.
