Flat Worms Announce Witness Marks Album
Flat Worms’ will release their new full-length album, Witness Marks, via Ty Segall’s Drag City imprint GOD?, with their first single, “Time Warp In Exile” today. The band’s first single, and new record, still has hints of the garage-punk of their past work but looks to 80s hardcore, as well as contemporaries like Viagra Boys, Fontaines D.C., and Parquet Courts. The band are looking inward this time, outlining personal space in relation to themselves and others – sometimes, even people they barely know.
Flat Worms, include lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist Will Ivy, drummer Justin Sullivan (Kevin Morby) and bassist Tim Hellman (OSEES) have navigated through the depths of their personal hardships in the four years since the band released Antarctica in early 2020. The democracy of working together, so often messy and frustrating, was found to be a powerful release for the trio. Acting as one, Flat Worms navigated their personal burdens by coming together, finding release in the clockwork repetitions of practice and the shared creative space they occupied together against the encroaching world.
Speaking to “Time Warp In Exile”, Will Ivy writes, “Given the opportunity to live in harmony, human nature takes over to corrupt. Jealousy and greed cannot be tamed; the relatable fate of Cain and Abel.”
