NETHERLANDS record release show

With Netherlands' epic second album, Silicon Vapor, released last week, the band prepares for its official record release show, November 30th at Death By Audio in Brooklyn.

Joining Netherlands for the event are Wild Yaks, Grandfather, and Low Fat Getting High.

Netherlands is fronted by Brooklyn musician Timo Ellis, whose 20-year career has seen him collaborate with Yoko Ono, Melvins, John Zorn, and many more. Silicon Vapor has been extolled by critics, including BrooklynVegan who describe it as "gritty high-energy punk/metal anchored by a huge distorted bass tone", and Burning Ambulance who call it "a genuinely unique record; its songs blend face-punching stoner-metal riffs that'll entice fans of Kyuss or Sleep with ultra-theatrical vocals that are part Muse, part Cardiacs..." 

Recorded by John Davis (Moby, The Roots), mixed by Bryce Goggin (Swans, Pavement), and mastered by Ron Shaffer (Tricky), the album can be purchased digitally via Netherlands' Bandcamp and will be available soon on vinyl as a limited edition double-LP.
