New Video from Georgia noise-rockers BAMBARA

Home from European tour w/ A Place To Strangers and METZ, and currently recording next record

BAMBARA is a storm. Recalling the brooding filth of early Swans and The Birthday Party, and the pummeling energy of Jesus Lizard or Iceage, BAMBARA uses their signature vocal-noise collages to create an unsettling, visceral experience.

Although BAMBARA only formed in Athens, GA in late 2008, the three boys have grown up together. Twin brothers Reid and Blaze Bateh (25) and childhood friend William Brookshire (25) have been consistently making music and playing shows together since they were in the 7th grade. Now the band is in Brooklyn, but spent the better part of last year touring in support of DREAMVIOLENCE.

DREAMVIOLENCE is BAMBARA’s long awaited full-length follow-up to their acclaimed debut EP Dog Ear Days (2010). After playing countless deafening shows in their hometown of Athens, touring the US in sweaty house shows and sharing bills with Grimes, Iceage, Liturgy, A Place to Bury Strangers, and Parts and Labor, BAMBARA decided to leave their beloved Athens and move to a basement apartment in Bushwick, Brooklyn for a change. Here they practiced, slept and recorded for the majority of 2012. Following the release of a Kate Bush cover and a 10 minute improv noise EP RINGS early in the year, BAMBARA began to work on DREAMVIOLENCE.
