3Teeth

With support from <Pig> at The Rescue Rooms Nottingham 1st February 2020.

In all honesty, before tonight I knew very little about 3teeth, or <PIG>, their support band but as I’m a fan of industrial metal and bands such like Korn and Marilyn Manson, I jumped at the chance to cover them on their Nottingham date, here at the Rescue Rooms.

Thankfully this gig was at the beginning of February, meaning we could wave goodbye to a very lonnnngggg January, as is usually the case and we could get back to doing what we love to do! Looking at the many faces, in attendance tonight, we can only assume that they all felt the same way as us!

Although doors were advertised for 18.30, they actually opened at 19.30, so we can only assume this was down to the fact 3teeth had a meet and greet session organised. However, once inside, it didn’t take long for the 450 capacity Rescue Rooms to fill to bursting and for tonight’s entertainment to kick off with UK based, post-industrialists <PIG> who were founded way back in 1988! Despite their many years of service, they still have lots of energy to share, helping us all get motivated and into the swing of things! Lead singer Raymond Watts, has a very seductive stage persona, which works well with the songs and the written lyrics, saucy! <PIG> have to be one of this genres best kept secrets and deserve greater exposure, as they are a very creative and individual band, indeed!

Many of the songs on tonight’s set list came courtesy of the bands new album ‘Candy’ which was released in 2019. The album is available in a variety of different sleeve options, for both CD and vinyl formats, as well as being available on all major streaming sites where you can also find all the bands previous releases – extending way back to their debut album ‘Genuine American Monster’ released back in 2002!

After a quick stage change over, we were straight back at it with tonight’s headliners, 3teeth! It’s a great honour to photograph any band but to do so on the opening night of a new tour, is always a little bit more special, as no one else has seen this particular show! By the time this review gets released into the wild, 3teeth will most likely be rocking out in venues over in Europe before these guys then head off onto North America. This tour is scheduled to last until April, which is a grueling undertaking but also a lot of fun – alas, we can only imagine!

Originally from Los Angeles, these post-apocalyptic metallers are outspoken on all things socio-political and do so whilst clad in leather, well lead singer Alexis is anyway! After grabbing the attentions of bands like Tool and Rammstein, fans such as those certainly pays off, as it gave them the opportunity to support both bands on and exposing them to a much wider audience! The current tour is in support of the bands latest third album ‘Metawar’, which was produced by Sean Beavan (NiN and Marilyn Manson) and released by Century Media.

Tonight was a powerful display of raw energy, that had probably been building up in anticipation of this tour and finally to be released for all of us to appreciate! Although it’s been a while since 3teeth last visited the UK, after the nights performance, I don’t think it’ll be long before they return here again, maybe in a field over the summer?

This was a great show and highlighted an album well worthy of gracing any metal heads collection!

Here’s an interesting fact that I read recently – did you know…. people who regularly attend a live gig, live an extra 15 years longer! I’m sure this is bollox but any excuse to get out and go to a gig like this one tonight, is good enough for me!

Realistically, I should have written this live review by now, to enable people the opportunity to read my thoughts on how I felt the gig went but this time I chose to promote this gig and tour visually, which, for both me and the band, appears to have worked better as it gave them an opportunity to share something new, out into social media land and enabled their follower to do the rest – the results of which have been astronomical in today’s standards, all be it a small (non-profitable) victory.

Until next time, be good and take care of each other!

RELEASE VIDEO FOR “ALTÆR” FROM LATEST ALBUM “METAWAR”
UK HEADLINE TOUR KICKS OFF 1ST FEBRUARY.

3TEETH have released a new music video for their track “ALTÆR” off of their latest LP METAWAR (out now on Century Media Records). The video showcases live footage from the post apocalyptic festival Wasteland, set in the middle of the Mojave desert, where the band played for the festival’s 10 year anniversary.

As frontman Alexis Mincolla describes, “The vibe was immersive to say the least and when temperatures dropped to about 40 degrees and the wind speeds kicked up to about 50 mph and it made for a very wild night.” Check out the video HERE.

The band will be on the road again in support of their latest album playing Europe and a co-headlining tour with Carnifex across North America in the spring. The tour kicks off on February 1st in Nottingham, UK and will make its way across Europe before concluding its leg on February 29th in Amsterdam, NL. They will begin their North American co-headlining tour with Carnifex shortly after on March 13th in Santa Ana, CA where it will stop into cities across North America including Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and Toronto before wrapping up with festival appearances at Epicenter, Rockville, Sonic Temple, and Hellfest in June.

3TEETH released their self-titled debut album in 2014, seeing the 14-track collection top the iTunes electronic charts and gaining the outfit widespread attention, both amongst music lovers and musicians, leading to the band’s opening slot on two legs of Tool’s 2016 North American tour. Once off the road, 3TEETH locked themselves in the studio, releasing their sophomore album, “<shutdown.exe>”, in the Spring of 2017. The album debuted at #23 on Billboard, and took the band across North America and Europe — headlining, and supporting acts such as Rammstein and Danzig. 3TEETH is Alexis Mincolla (vocals), Xavier Swafford (keyboards), Andrew Means (modular synth/bass), Chase Brawner (guitar) and Justin Hanson (drums).
