Official press release:
Nefarious Industries welcomes Arizona-based The Oxford Coma to their roster. The band’s diehard DIY approach and overall weirdness caught the label’s attention and a new album is now planned for 2019.
The Oxford Coma’s Billy Tegethoff states:
“The journey to the perfect label has been daunting, to say the least, but when I saw Nefarious Industries’ interview with Decibel that said something to the effect of ‘we look for the most adventurous and least commercially viable acts we can find,’ I was like, hey this is it. These guys are willing to put in time and effort to get weird bands to a receptive audience; a mission we share. I think it’s a perfect partnership. It allows us to keep doing what we always have as an independent band, but now we have friends and labelmates to do it with. Party.”
Nefarious Industries’ Greg Meisenberg reports:
“We’re all chilling at a 4th of July BBQ, skewering shrimp, lighting up firecrackers, and the conversation drifts to this email we all got the night before from a band that describes themselves as progressive psychedelic grunge rock with a record titled Everything Out Of Tune that sounds like King Missile’s rendition of Failure covering Primus. Naturally, we were stoked! Plus, we’re all huge fans of The Oxford Coma. And puns. Definitely looking forward to 2019!”
Watch for more on this development as the band sets up to record the new LP next year.
In the meantime, The Oxford Coma is currently booking a Western US tour for September and October in support of their Steve Albini-produced second LP, Everything Out Of Tune. Watch for the routing to be announced shortly.
