Ross Robinson & Slipknot’s Sid Wilson Get Behind ‘Trü-Metal’ Band Swollen Teeth


Swollen Teeth have announced an April 26th release date for their self-titled debut EP. That outing was produced by Slipknot‘s DJ/resident daredevil, Sid Wilson. This outing will also be the first release through the newly launched Blowed Out Records label—a new partnership between producer Ross Robinson (Korn, Slipknot), Ghostemane and SideOneDummy Records co-founder Bill Armstrong.

A music video for the title track to the band’s forthcoming EP has emerged online below. Speaking of the effort, Wilson commented:

“After all these years, when I thought I’d never find another group of humans outside of Slipknot that knew the formula to transparency thru frequencies, and not thru appearance, I discovered Swollen Teeth. This is trü-Metal!”

Robinson added:

Sid and I listening to roughs in Iowa, emotions ran high – I found myself getting chills throughout my body to that familiar molten metal pulse I love so much – this time that force is known as “Swollen Teeth” – hunger + talent have that vibration I can’t ignore – Bill, Eric, and I (‘Blowed Out Records‘) are totally committed to rip it out there for the long haul.. “

Robinson also told Revolver of the group, which some suspect may be a side project of Wilson‘s:

“When I was involved with Slipknot, the version of the band back then is very similar to what this is. My favorite version. It rings hunger, like the rawness of the beginning of Slipknot. It’s just very, very hungry.”

Per that same interview, Wilson stated that the band are committed to upholding their secrecy:

“They make everybody [wear a mask when they are around them.] The manager, anyone. Anyone that’s there that’s part of the family has to conceal their identity. They show up and you don’t see them until it’s time for them to play. They’re not even in the dressing room. They literally pull up in an SUV or van all blacked-out. They come up, they got security with them. The security look like a SWAT team and they take them up and they’re onstage with them the whole show.”
