Austin trio Evil Triplet have released the first video from their recently released double LP debut ‘Otherworld’. You can watch the new video for ‘We Are The Aliens’ here: YouTube 

The band is currently wrapping up production on a followup album titled Have a Nice Trip for release in early 2018. Vocalist/guitarist Steve Marsh describes the recording:

 

“We figured that the last record came out so well that we shouldn’t mess with the process: recorded at Sonic Ranch, engineered by Charles Godfrey, produced by Rob Halverson and myself, mixed at Halversonics Recording in Austin, and being mastered by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service. The guitar photo (see below) is a Gibson Futura that once belonged to Billy Gibbons that I got to use during recording.”

The Austin Chronicle recently featured the band, also highlighting vocalist/guitarist Steve Marsh’s extensive background from 70s-80s punk progenitors Terminal Mind, to late-80s industrial-psych Miracle Room and later period noise merchants Wisdom Tooth.

Evil Triplet is a heavy psych trio from Austin, TX. The space rock behemoth is comprised of Steve Marsh (guitar and vocals), Kirk Laktas (drums), and Joe Volpi (bass).

 

Marsh traces back to Terminal Mind, a seminal band in the Austin punk scene of the late 70s that spawned The Big Boys and The Dicks (Super Secret offshoot Sonic Surgery Records will be reissuing Terminal Mind’s original recorded output, plus unreleased studio and live tracks, later in 2017). He then led Miracle Room, a psychedelic industrial hoedown that shared stages with Snakefinger, Butthole Surfers, Scratch Acid, Negativland, and Sonny Sharrock, among others, and morphed into Wisdom Tooth, which released a CD on Knitting Factory’s imprint.

 

Kirk is the keyboard wizard in post-rock bands My Education and Cinders, and was an early member of Stars Of The Lid. He has worked sessions with Acid Mothers Temple, Shearwater, Pauline Oliveros and ST37.

 

Mr Volpi toured and recorded with Primordial Undermind, as well as lending his chops to countless other Austin bands, including The Flood and Reverend Glasseye. He also performs a dark acoustic song cycle solo as Kaiser Soze, and plays standup bass in Cinders.

 

Evil Triplet recorded their debut opus at Sonic Ranch Studios, in the desert outside El Paso, TX. The sound is lush, lysergic and overpowering. In addition to the solid foundation of classic heavy guitar rock, there are multiple points of experimentation, with Marsh attacking the electric guitar with vibrator, drill, electric razor and music box. There are also underlying synth loops, piano and organ, all in service to the tripped-out material, with lyrics covering such topics as space, mushrooms, human consciousness as alien possession, and a plea from Lucifer to his minions to stay in school.

Otherworld is available on LP, CD and download on February 10th, 2017 via Super Secret Records.
