Emerging UK crossover crew THE FINAL CLAUSE OF TACITUS return with an exhilarating new EP, Asinine Music for the Solemn and Staid, out on Friday 14th May. The eclectic threesome have also just delivered a brand new single and video, Something’s Gonna Break – https://youtu.be/yEBN5qFMKgM .
Reading-based THE FINAL CLAUSE OF TACITUS have been serving up their enticing brand of groove-heavy riffs, fused with funk and rock since their formation in 2016. Channelling everyone from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Skunk Anansie, through to Korn and Rage Against The Machine, THE FINAL CLAUSE OF TACITUS express a sound that is drenched in groove and loaded with boundless energy.
Playing live shows with the likes of (Hed) P.E, Electric 6, DJ Lethal, Senser, 808 State, Hacktivist, Skindred and Crazy Town has only helped to tighten the band’s sound and stage presence, and further increase their profile. To date, THE FINAL CLAUSE OF TACITUS have dropped two Eps, which garnered a raft of radio airplay and reviews, including strong praise from Kerrang! And in 2019, the band also unleashed their first full album, Antiquity, which included an accompanying full animated story.
During the coronavirus lockdown, the trio began work on their next EP entitled Asinine Music for the Solemn and Staid. The record was self-mastered and self-produced across the band’s own individual studios and the result is a stunning five track EP comprising collaborations with Jahred Gomes from (Hed) P.E and Georgi Valentine from Mother Vulture. Vocalist Matt Dune remarks about the record: “Born out of the flames of 2020, when the world as we knew it changed, this record tackles face first the feelings of despair and anger we all have been feeling this past year. It pulls in a more aggressive sound, producing anthems of anger with each song giving you a different message to unite in our anguish together.”
Track listing: 1. Something’s Gonna Break; 2. War Cry (feat. Georgi Valentine); 3. Not Today (feat. Jahred Gomes); 4. All Figured Out; 5. I Can’t Talk to You.
