Vendlus Records has confirmed the upcoming debut from Oakland, California-based abstract/hyper metal act, DIMESLAND. The eclectic act has a strong interest in tension, mutation and fracture, in evidence not only harmonically and rhythmically but also within blurred tales of psychological havoc. Featuring members of The Residents and Wild Hunt, DIMESLAND was formed in 2006 by guitarists Nolan Cook and Drew Cook, and after several incarnations the lineup was solidified with the addition of drummer Harland Burkhart and bassist/vocalist Greg Brace.
The band’s live shows are frantic and dense and feature songs woven together with shorter pieces and soundscapes for an almost nonstop presentation of sound. DIMESLAND‘s debut EP, Creepmoon, will see release via Vendlus Records on February 14, 2012.
This weekend DIMESLAND are scheduled to perform at a hometown kickoff show for the release of Creepmoon, playing alongside key Bay Area acts Hammers Of Misfortune and Giant Squid.
