Parasitic Twins / The Carnival Rejects launch split EP – listen to it here

Just under a year since firing their debut EP All That’s Left To Do Now Is Sleep With Each Other, Hull’s scariest kids Parasitic Twins are back with a split EP alongside crust punk mob The Carnival Rejects; The Parasitic Rejects. Caught somewhere between aching low-end doom and histrionic punk rock, the six track EP sees a caustic evolution.

A curious inclusion is the lo-fi heavy cover of the 90s classic “Spaceman” by Babylon Zoo, which was released on April 5th. All proceeds of the sale were donated to The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM). Drummer Dom Smith had this to say on their relationship with CALM:

Male mental health is becoming more spotlighted every day, and myself and Max [guitars and vocals] want to offer any support we can to spread the word.

The band succeed in harnessing the youthful rage of their debut EP while showing off a sharper production and tighter songwriting chops. teaming up with The Carnival Rejects gives a more rounded, albeit none-the-less vicious offering that nabs the heavier elements of Pig Destroyer and Discharge. Fans of grim hardcore, crust punk and doom won’t want to miss the Twins’ second helping. Listen to at wielding volume.
