HOT HOT HATE
Comprised of veterans of London’s music scene (Massacres, Lull, Thunder On The Left, Bourgeois & Maurice etc.) and taking influence from bands such as Pissed Jeans, Melvins, mclusky, The Jesus Lizard and Whores, London noise-punks Muscle Vest aim to reflect the struggle of the average person against an exploitative system within a crumbling state.
Thrashed out and recorded live in a single day at Hempstead Road Studios by Steph Carter (Gallows, Lyoness), HOT HOT HATE represents the Muscle Vest’s efforts to capture their furious live sound.
“As soon as Steph’s name was floated to us, out of all the options we knew that if anyone would get what we were trying to achieve right away, it would be him.” Hot Hot Hate was mastered by Alan Douches at West Side Music (Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge).
Hot Hot Hate confronts contemporary ire - degenerate and callous behaviour shown towards women across all media, mid-life stagnation, and the struggle of achieving anything of note from within a collapsing society. Also, murders.
Fun for the whole family!™
This is follow up to Muscle Vest's 2021 EP Live Laugh Loathe;
"Live Laugh Loathe feels like therapy for Muscle Vest – as they spit rage and filth, you can feel it in their music as if trying to make their music a reflection of how they see the world around them. They create an ugly noise to stand shoulder to shoulder with some of the best noise rockers around and I want more of it."
- The Moshville Times
Muscle Vest pack in a boatload of adrenaline and bring ALL the noise: it’s fucking ugly and monstrously brutal, and those are its positive points. It ain’t polished or pretty, and if you’re on the market for something gnarly, look no further.
