Greatest Wets – Wet Nuns Announce Debut Album
Released October 7 and preceded by new single ‘Only Sometimes’, Wet Nuns – the Sheffield band most likely to use your as ligaments as guitar strings – have just announced their self-titled debut album (rejected titles below).
The Death-blues duo also embark on a tour in support, finishing with a hometown return on October 19 at Queens Social Club with tickets on sale this Friday (26 July).
2013 has a shotgun-toting year for the Nuns following their own curated (and sold-out) Sheffield fest of unpleasantness, Detestival, and winning Video of the Year at Artrocker Awards for the embroidered stop-motion skulls of ‘Why You So Cold’. If you haven’t seen it, ‘stitch this’, as they say…
Recorded by Sheffield’s busiest producer Ross Orton (who also produced Drenge’s blindness-inducing debut – review here – as well as co-producing the Arctics latest) it’ll be out in vinyl, CD and download and we’ll have a review shortly, natch.
After many weeks of negotiating and brainstorming, the following album titles were shelved; ‘In Da House’, Nashville Nostalgia, Happy Girthday, Flatcap Lumberjack and the Catflap Flapjacks, Huangpu River Dead Pigs, Spitbubble Cathedral, Vibed Cubed, Groovy Sauna, Greatest Wets, and finally Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit.
