Washington grindblasters, THE DRIP, have delivered another dosage of their rampaging tactics with the release of "Siren."
Pulled from their impending Relapse debut, A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics, the two minutes and thirteen seconds of "Siren" are a relentless introduction to THE DRIP's violent effectiveness, the intensity of the high-speed grindcore intro matched only by the monolithic breakdown groove which follows, showcasing this band right in line behind their brutalizing predecessors, Misery Index, Nasum, Rotten Sound and the like.
Tune in to Lambgoat who is now streaming "Siren" at THIS LOCATION.

THE DRIP continues to book regional shows in conjunction with the release of A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics, leading off with a headlining gig in their hometown of Richland which will also serve as a video shoot for another new track from their Relapse debut on April 12th. Subsequent shows will see THE DRIP ripping it up with labelmates Fuck The Facts and Ulcerate as well as Capitalist Casualties and more, with more widespread touring to follow.

Following several self-financed EPs, THE DRIP now brings their ferocious, blasting arts to the Relapse roster with the release of their label debut, A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics. A relentless, skull-crushing, pissed off, high-energy, blast-riddled explosion of violence, the EP rips through six tracks in barely twelve minutes, the first release to be fully recorded at Audiosiege in Portland by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust), after which it was mastered by Brad Boatright (Tragedy, From Ashes Rise, Integrity). Relapse will release A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics in North America on April 15th preceded by its April 11the release in Germany and Benelux and April 14th release in the UK and rest of the world. The EP will see release on CD, digital and LP delivery, the first press of the vinyl to bear a totally sick etching on the B-side.
