Los Angeles industrial foursome 3TEETH released their debut self-titled album on Artoffact Records on June 3rd, landing at #8 on iTunes Electronic chartand reaching #5 on Bandcamp’s overall sales rankings. The group garnered praise from all corners of the internet in the weeks leading up to the release, including high marks from top blogs Earmilk, Mishka, I Die: You Die, Design Milk, and Electronic Beats. A remix album featuring the likes of Aesthetic Perfection, Bestial Mouths, AAIMON, and Blush Response—and released on a tooth-shaped USB stick—sold out on pre-orders, as did the band’s accompanying splatter vinyl.
3TEETH formed in late 2012 and the group spent 2013 crafting their sound and creating an online image that is at once political and mysterious. The group’s logo-emblazoned photos have become the stuff of memes, and their online fanbase has increased with every leaked remix, video, and photograph.
3TEETH will debut their live show at LA’s prestigious Complex club on June 21st, and they will make their Canadian debut at Calgary’s Terminus Festival June 27th-29th. More tour dates are in the works.
