Noise-rock and sludge is a potent mix and when it’s performed by a duo of guitar and drums, it becomes a formidable force, which is exactly what we get with BELK. Hailing from Leeds, they’ve been around for a couple of years spewing forth their filth with demo recordings as well as obliterating music venues with their blistering live performances.
This DIY ethos brought them to the attention of Human Worth, who will be issuing a seriously heavy slab of wax in the form of The Committee 7” EP. Set to be released on 7th October, pre-sales for this six-track behemoth start today, 2nd September, and as with all Human Worth releases, 10% of the proceeds will be donated to Action Bladder Cancer UK.
For a taster of the destruction to come, we at The Shaman are elated to bring you the, George Chadwick filmed and edited, lyric video for the track Warm Water that sees the duo punishing the airwaves with a short sharp shock of sludge-y noise-rock chaos…
More On BELK & ‘The Committee’
Human Worth are proud to present the latest EP from the exciting Leeds noise outfit BELK.
The duo have been on our radar for many years now, having recently blown away crowds on a run of shows with our very own 72%. So we couldn’t be more stoked to bring you this hefty slab of a 7″, which is sure to blast away any remaining summer holiday ‘chilled vibes’.
From the first note The Committee punches straight to the gut, bringing BELK‘s unique and chaotic blend of raw as hell vocals and pummelling drums, with some hugely heavy riffs, mixed with a distinctly noise-punk mindset. Recorded and produced by Mr Tom Goodall of the mighty Cattle (RIP) at his Hohm Recording Studio, the sound is dense, crisp and perfectly captures the band’s ferocious energy.
Human Worth have pressed up a super limited edition of 150 crisp black 7″ vinyl, featuring stunning artwork by Godsteeth Illustration. The vinyl is housed in black paper inners with a hand-numbered insert, printed on a nice weighty stock and featuring the photography of Immie Hartley. The 7″ also features the additional demo track Net from their 2022 Promo, plus an additional demo track download.
Pre-order from 2nd September with 10% of all proceeds donated to charity Action Bladder Cancer UK, who work to support patients, raise awareness, improve early diagnosis and outcomes, and support research into bladder cancer.

02. Big Body
