Earlier this year we released Temple of Rats, a long-lost paean to punk that was only recently unearthed in a west London basement by the band’s vocalist, Nicotine Rick. Due to the unprecedented overseas praise of their re/released debut record–some 28 years after its initial pressing–Rick is back with the original Temple lineup to present Deep Ride, the band’s first record of new material in nearly three decades. A twelve track sonic assault that mixes equal parts thrash, crash, doom, and gloom, Rick says these new tracks are “for the scene, but mostly for Todd [St. Cloud]. None of this would have been possible had it not been for the support of Bad Manners back in ’86.” Dubbed in mono on clear shells with black foil inserts and full color jcard.
Bad news: Destruction Unit tapes are all gone on our end. Check them out live and see if you can get one at their table.
