Ex-Cult take "Negative Growth" to the Benelux in April


Memphis punks Ex-Cult released a new nine-song full-length last September. Negative Growth was recorded by frontman Chris Shaw’s GØGGS bandmate Ty Segall in Los Angeles and is preceded by the single “Attention Ritual,” a sludgy and distorted lo-fi beauty.

Frontman Shaw about the record: In the year of the snitch, there are forces beyond your control that keep you up at night. Ghost notions that swirl around your room while you sleep. Your own pillow laughing right in your face while you fight for an hour of rest. There are voices that whisper from the corner, telling you everything you never wanted to hear. ‘Negative Growth’, our third album, is dedicated to fear and deception.

This collection of songs were conceived in Memphis and finalized in Los Angeles, with the help of our family doctor Ty Segall. It was created in February 2016, when we traded Memphis misery for a week of California sunshine. ‘Negative Growth’ is a nine-track nightmare, a death trip in the crystal ship. Out later this year, the institution known as In The Red Records will do the honors. The Hollywood Heat Seeker takes ten years off your life.
