Artrocker: "Spectres quiet confidence combined with their 'putting their money where the mouth is' ethos makes them the most exciting band we could have picked to win our new blood competition this year".

"The remainder of their set is all about letting their thunderously metallic scree attack your ears like a tornado tearing through a nail factory. It's a bracing experience indeed, teetering on the brink of beauty during the shimmering build-ups and Joe Hatt's vocals; a spectral howl under booming black clouds"

The Stool Pigeon: "Sounds like Sonic Youth from the bowels of a haunted well, only leads us to believe the rest of their output is a scary prospect indeed"

DIY: "Spectres create a heavy, nu gazey noise that will leave your ears ringing for days"

*****

Spectres (https://www.facebook.com/wearespectres) are a very uncompromising band. For three years now, they have created music that has driven people out of venues and made their own ears show the white noise flag; but they have ploughed through regardless...and it has been more than worth the pain: people are starting to take notice of Spectres, and the 'Hunger' EP shows why.

A definite progression from the 2011 release 'Family'(http://thefourohfive.com/review/article/spectres-family-ep), 'Hunger' shows the band experimenting with a sound that is often impossible to tame, and steering it towards some harsh beauty.

Following their crowning of the 'Artrocker Unsigned Band of the Year' award, the 'Hunger' EP saw the band take their visceral live sound into a squat bedroom, set up a few mics among the mattresses, plug in, play and see what happened. The results of which you can view in this short teaser: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7am-kTygU4&feature=youtu.be

Recorded by members of the blossoming Howling Owl Records family (Oliver Wilde and Dominic Mitchison, Velcro Hooks); 'Hunger' somehow manages to knead the squalls of feedback, distortion and noise, whilst leaving room for the vocals to float around at will.

Released on 11th March 2013 through Bristol's Howling Owl Records (http://howlingowlrecords.tumblr.com/), 'Hunger' is limited to 100 12" vinyl, that also comes with a CDR and download code; all housed in handmade sleeves and artwork; as always with Howling Owl.
