Cocksure announces new album on MetropolisCocksure, the Chicago industrial duo of Jason Novak and Chris Connelly, has announced that it will release a new full-length album, titled TVMALSV, on August 12, 2014 via Metropolis Records. Of the album, Connelly states, “It’s sensory overload. Do NOT listen to it whilst driving.” He goes on to say about the band’s varied and eclectic style, “We did not really set many parameters,” while Novak, who also mixed and produced TVMALSV, states, “No f***ing dubstep drops, hip-hop synths or breakdowns. Nothing cute.”
Featured on the album is a guest appearance by Front 242’s Richard 23, an original founding member of Revolting Cocks. “Personally, when I think of classic WaxTrax!, I think of Jean Luc and Richard 23’s vocal interplay,” says Novak about Richard 23’s involvement, “I couldn’t help but hear that familiar call-and-response style in my head, and thankfully Richard was game.”
Adding to the band’s spiritual succession of Revolting Cocks, Connelly states, “as far the ‘old‘ Revolting Cocks went, there was a lot of unfinished business for me. So, without picking up where we left off necessarily, I wanted to acknowledge the 20 year gap and THEN pick up.” He also says, “Cocksure is us using what we know and helped create but without looking back at it. We want it to apply to now, lyrically and musically.”
The album is now available for pre-order in both CD and limited edition vinyl via Metropolis Mailorder. Earlier this year, Cocksure released the debut KKEP (Klusterfuck Kulture EP), as well as a limited edition 12-inch vinyl T.K.O. Mindfuck on WaxTrax!, showcased at the store’s one-day reopening on June 15.
In addition, Cocksure will be performing, along with Front 242, in New York as part of 242’s 30 year US anniversary on September 24, and at the ColdWaves III festival in Chicago on September 27.
