EAT FAST have signed to CANNIBAL HYMNS (the home of DREAM WIFE, OUR GIRL, ABATTOIR BLUES) for their EP 'IMMORTAL KOMBAT' which is due out 19/5 on limited 12" Vinyl and are playing THE GREAT ESCAPE (full dates below). Check out the EP's lead single 'SCRAMBLED EGG' here:
The EP's bruising lead single 'Scrambled Egg' was released today, recorded in bedrooms and studios around their home suburb, Newcastle's Byker, Immortal Kombat is a document to the limitations of self-love; the pathology of loneliness in the modern world; the intrinsic need to connect and identify with other human beings; and of course, death, and how our approach to mortality affects the way in which we love. Sewn together across six tracks of squirming guitar riffs, thunderous drumming, taut vocals and razor witted lyrics, Immortal Kombat is EAT FAST on their leanest and most succinct form yet.
Layering lo-fi garage aesthetics on top of pop song arrangements, EAT FAST was originally intended solely as the recording project of Adam Pearson, but 2016 saw EAT FAST develop into a live band, with Pearson cutting short a PhD in contemporary poetry at the University of St. Andrews to move home and bring friends Mark Brown, James King and John Edgar into the fold.
With influences ranging from Basil Bunting to The Cure, EAT FAST mix sugar-drenched harmonies with Pearson’s dark lyrical content.
