Surmiser and Walking Bombs release “Sexy Beasts” 2 song split

Posted by Metal Riot on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 6:46 PM (PST)

Upstate, NY projects Surmiser and Walking Bombs have released a new 2 song split exclusively via Bandcamp RIGHT HERE.

The Surmiser track finds the space grunge band re-interpreting the first song they ever wrote “What End?” into a slightly more driving and post-punk attack that still has a sort of heavy distortion that will please fans of Melvins’ epic cover of The Wiper’s “Youth Of America” while perhaps also appealing to the Publicist UK crowd with droll yet potent vocals.

Walking Bombs jumps genres with practically every song (their last song was an extreme grindcore tune), but this new one is a very psych pop influenced non-metal song called “Queen E”. It barely passes two minutes but has many textures in that time until the ‘peak’ at the ending. This one is more for the kind of grunge fan who also leaned towards The Breeders and Kurt’s Beatles influence rather than the more Nevermind-fitting Surmiser track. Check them out!

Surmiser and Walking Bombs announce “Sexy Beasts” grunge split

Posted by Metal Riot on Friday, August 25, 2017 at 3:48 PM (PST)

Upstate, NY grunge rock outfits Surmiser  and Walking Bombs have announced initial details regarding a 2 song split between the groups. Entitled Sexy Beasts, the split will feature a new recording of an older Surmiser song called “What End?”, which vocalist Jay Andersen says is ,“up tempo and has cool pumpy drums in it” and a brand new hard rock/indie punk Walking Bombs tune called “Queen E”.

“Imagine if the Breeders wrote a 2x as heavy but still very catchy song and that is the weird micro genre of my new tune,” says Bombs vocalist Morgan Y. Evans.

Expect the dual band release to see the light of ear before the end of the year online. Release date details to be announced soon.

Blah Blah Blah. New feature around here henceforth shall be talking to an artist about five records that were very important to them as they grew their first baby bat wings. Since it is 7:50 AM and I can’t just magically have answers from Ola Englund or Scott Hull in my back pocket moments after conceiving this column, I will go first myself to kick off this edition.

As some of you know, I not only do the majority of heavy lifting around here for Metalriot.com but have also been a singer for over 20 years in the Hudson Valley, NY region. We have had many bands and musicians come from or settle here. Coheed, one of the dudes from Bask, Shai Hulud (originally from Florida, I know), All Out War, Nightmares For A Week, Three, Pitchfork Militia, Geezer, Diet Cig, Casting Ships, Painmask, Clover, Shadow Witch. Even one time pretty big ska influenced bands like Perfect Thyroid and Conehead Buddha. Take your pick. There are a lot of ’em old and new.

A great part of growing up here was being immersed in a deep well of creativity so close to Woodstock, NY and many varied tastes. You also were close to the Albany and Poughkeepsie hardcore scenes and a lot more. I am currently focused on my solo/collaborative work as Walking Bombs , which allows me to do whatever genres I wish with various friends or solo. The next wave of material is gonna up the ante on some of the punk and sludge/grunge influences, but I just released an album called Brave Hours that is more on the alt rock/post-punk side. I also used to sing for many other bands from Fuse to Divest to Pontius Pilate Sales Pitch and Antidote 8, to name a few.

Some of you know me. Others don’t. Perhaps you might find it interesting to know some records that inspired me to do what I do everyday. Don’t fret. I will find some more famous people for future entries, hahaha.

More Below.

Walking Bombs, the solo +  collaborative varied genre effort of vocalist and writer Morgan Ywain Evans today released a new song from pending 2nd album Brave Hours a week before the full release drops via Bandcamp HERE. This track features Jay Andersen (Surmiser) on drums, Evans on vocals, bass and acoustic and lead cold melodic guitar from Gatecreeper/Spirit Adrift guitarist Nate Garrett. Andersen tracked in Saugerties, NY and it was mastered by grunge icon Tad Doyle at Witch Ape.

Says Evans: “The lyrics and melody are honestly from like 2004. It was originally a song for my old band DIVEST that we never recorded but played live a few times and sounded very different. I always liked the lyrics so reconfigured the music into a sort of Soundgarden Down On The Upside inspired number. It is mellow but dark. The arrangement is kind of weird so I figured this would be a cool one to have Nate play on. We became friendly last year and he is such a cool and genuine dude. It certainly doesn’t sound like his other bands- more like The Edge from U2 or something- sad and spaced out- and he said it was fun to try new things. I love the weird scale he does at the end over the sort of shambling bridge as the song falls into a sort of depressed ending. It is basically a tune about moving forward or being left behind by the world or a relationship.”
