    Austin cult noise rockers Cherubs are releasing their first album in 20 years, 2 Ynfynyty, on March 3rd via Brutal Panda Records. The LP is streaming in full below.

    Originally signed to King Coffey of Butthole Surfers’ Trance Syndicate label, Cherubs dropped three LPs in the early ’90s, including the twisted masterpiece Heroin Man in 1994. Although the band never enjoyed the success seen by the likes of Butthole Surfers or The Jesus Lizard, Cherubs built a small but dedicated following touring the DIY and underground circuit. Even today, their influence can be heard in the works of modern acts like Pissed Jeans.

    Despite the long hiatus, 2 Ynfynyty is proof that Cherubs have lost none of the nihilistic rage that motivated their early material. It’s a blown-out riffer, EQ firmly in the red. The record is available for pre-order on vinyl (already down to the last 250 copies), cassette (limited to only 100), and digital format here.
