!!! to Release Fifth LP Via Warp
- Words: James Eaton
The dance-punk-funk stalwarts of !!! have taken to their website to announce their next album, a nine-track LP cleverly titled THR!!!ER. The record will mark !!!'s fifth long-player of its career, the fourth released via Warp. Guitarist Mario Andreoni shares some insight into the record's title, saying, "Thriller didn't merely come to represent the selling of a lot of records...it became synonymous with an artist(s)' and/or genre(s)' artistic high-watermark. INXS' Kick is the Australian Thriller... Alanis' Jagged Little Pill is the Canadian Thriller...Wham!'s Make It Big is the blow-dryer's Thriller...every recording by the 13th Floor Elevators is the dosed-man's Thriller..."Sister Ray" by the Velvet Underground is the Thriller of musical fever dreams. One day at the studio, Nic [Offer, vocalist] drew THR!!!ER on a napkin and I liked it...then we made our THR!!!ER." Before !!!'s next album arrives on April 29, you can take a look its artwork up top, and check out its tracklist, as well as preview one of its tunes, below.
