When 3TEETH’s self titled debut album hit #1 on iTunes, it got them noticed by TOOL who invited them to join TOOL and Primus on a full US arena tour in 2016. After returning from the tour, the band immediately locked themselves in the studio to crank out their sophomore release, “”. The record hit #23 on Billboard, and landed them tours across the US and Europe — headlining, and supporting acts such as Rammstein, HIM, and Danzig.
“Our debut album was man vs the world, our sophomore album was man vs himself, and now our forthcoming third album is world vs world,” frontman Alexis Mincolla muses how if man doesn’t create his own world, then he’s to be crushed by the world of another. “METAWAR”, coming out July 5 2019 on Century Media Records, is exactly that — a sonic attack on the wide scale perception management systems that currently grip our worlds. It’s a counter-measure in the invisible silicon war of ideology that is constantly moving avatar pawns on the battleground of our social platforms. “We live in a world where we are all tethered to the same large scale prosthetic digital nervous system, and perpetually being manipulated and incentivized by the ideology de jour. Even the most independent thinkers are being pinned to one side or another as a result of it. Our goal is to jam this album in the cognitive gears that perpetuate this fiercely divisive rhetoric, by exposing the hypocrisy, idiocy, and insanity on all sides,” Mincolla says. “It’s time to carve out a non-conformist space between the left and right that doesn’t have a definable psychographic for corporations to exploit. METAWAR is here to tear down the walls of our memetic concentration camps.”
To help execute their vision for the new record, 3TEETH enlisted producer Sean Beavan, who is known for producing and mixing some of rock’s most influential industrial-strength artists, including Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson.
