The sprawling DIY-booked trek begins on September 25th in Philadelphia and rampages across the country for more than a month, ending in New York City October 26th. Along the way, OXX will perform the new LP in its entirety, and will share the stage with a wide range of artists including Gnaw, Machinist!, Nefarious Industries kin Nequient, PAK, Mine Collapse, Those Darn Gnomes, Gridfailure, and Blackthorne, among others
Nefarious Industries is hyped to announce the impending release of the unhinged new album by Aarhus, Denmark-based trio OXX. The debilitating new LP – titled, The Skeleton Is Just A Coat Hanger; These Are The Black Strings That Make You Dance, or lovingly abbreviated as The Skeleton… – is being finalized for release in summer 2019.
OXX is a Danish trio shamelessly doing whatever pleases them. The band has been working toward an auditory mindfuck since 2012. All three members of OXX have previously been active in both the Danish punk/metal scene and heaps of weird shit such as avant/free music, afrobeat, and film scoring. Originally formed to bridge the gap between these seemingly disparate genres, OXX has since grown into a feral beast of its own.
OXX rips feverishly through math, noise, sludge, crust, avant-garde, and whichever other subgenre of extreme music imaginable. One might perhaps call it clusterfuck-core, but if that’s hard to picture, try getting blackout drunk and beating yourself to death with a Thomas Pynchon door stopper; that should put you in the ballpark.
Watch for a confirmed street date and full details on The Skeleton Is Just A Coat Hanger; These Are The Black Strings That Make You Dance including audio/video samples, preorders, and more to be issued in the days ahead. Tour plans for OXX are also in the planning stages.
