HOLY TONGUES + BrooklynVegan

Comprised of three members of the late Ruiner, Baltimore's Holy Tongues releases its debut LP, Weak People, August 5th on Melotov Records.

Today, BrooklynVegan presents the exclusive premiere of "Filters," a song off the album, reporting, "[Weak People] sees Holy Tongues moving past Ruiner's melodic hardcore into slower realms of post-hardcore with aggressive, Albini-indebted sludge bass and shoutier vocals... a dose of sludge punk that wouldn't feel out of place on Sub Pop's late '80s roster..."

Weak People was produced by Kevin Bernsten (Full of Hell, Magrudergrind) and mastered by James Plotkin (Isis, Earth).

The A.V. Club recently premiered "92," another track off the album.

Holy Tongues, live:
August 9 - Baltimore, MD @ The Windup Space (record release show)
August 10 - Brooklyn, NY @ The Flat

"A dose of sludge punk that wouldn't feel out of place on Sub Pop's late '80s roster..."

"The members of Baltimore trio Holy Tongues are no strangers to turmoil. All three previously served time in Ruiner, one of the most vicious hardcore acts of the '00s. But Weak People, Holy Tongues' upcoming debut album, simmers more than it slams, On the song '92,' debuted here, the group contains and internalizes an eruption of rage and regret, compressing it into a knot of blackened punk and then swallowing it whole."
