Brooklyn drone-strewn noise rock threesome, TIDAL ARMS, hurl forth another canticle from their forthcoming new self-titled full-length. Titled “Molasses,” the tune — based on the Great Molasses Flood, a real event where a massive tidal wave of molasses destroyed a large area of Boston’s North End in 1919 — is currently monopolizing the airwaves courtesy of Vice/Noisey. All proceeds raised from the sale of the song will be used to help restore Brooklyn’s Translator Audio and The South Sound rehearsal studios, which were destroyed in Hurricane Sandy last year.

Relays guitarist/vocalist Tom Tierney, “Andrew Schneider from Translator Audio has made some of our favorite records, recorded our first 7″ and mixed [TIDAL ARMS debut] The Sun Exploding, and shares our love for the bizarre story of the Molasses Flood. His studio, Translator Audio and The South Sound rehearsal studios, were tragically destroyed in Hurricane Sandy. They’re starting over, and we’re releasing ‘Molasses’ as a fundraiser for the rebuild. Proceeds from the sale of the song go to Translator Audio and The South Sound.”

Describes Noisey of the track, “‘Molasses’ is like a five course meal of musical genres. At first, the song starts off with an ambient spacey vibe before shifting gears into droney, stoner rock. Then all of a sudden, by the fourth minute, we are knee-deep in doomy sludge metal. Subtle changes maybe, but enough to make it feel less like a song and more like a journey through the Lands of Heavy-Ass Rock.”

Self-produced and mixed by Tierney and Alex Mead-Fox at the band’s own Spaceman Sound in Greenpoint, and mastered by renowned sound serpent Alan Douches (Converge, Torche, The Dillinger Escape Plan etc.) at West West Side Music, the fiery ten-track Tidal Arms expands upon the band’s gristly, heterogeneous soundspace. Discordant yet catchy and doused in angular riff cascades, celestial interludes and the penetrating vocal rants of Tierney, TIDAL ARMS integrate various elements of post-hardcore, noise rock and doom into their heaviest, most ethereal creation yet.

Adventurous souls can still sample the sounds of “Mirrorbox,” currently playing at Revolver at THIS LOCATION as well as “Gooski’s Ladder,” courtesy of MetalSucks HERE.

TIDAL ARMS will bring their serenades to the stage later this month with a special record release performance at The Acheron as well as a stint at Glassland Gallery in December. Additional live abrasions will be announced in the weeks to come.
