“Pre Strike Sweep” IN THE RED

Exclaim! - - NEWS -

Out Now. With their se­cond al­bum Pre Strike Sweep, GØGGS add a new level of pri­mor­dial anx­i­ety to their al­ready cat­a­strophic sym­phony. Recorded and mixed in 2017 by GØGGS gui­tarist and co-founder Ty Se­gall, the al­bum ex­plores the dam­ag­ing ef­fects of mod­ern life be­fore blow­ing them up one by one. Singer Chris Shaw uses terms like “space rinse” and “road­side surgery” to in­form the lis­tener that this is a strange and dif­fer­ent trip, far and away from the “Glen­dale Junk­yard” he ro­man­ti­cized in 2016 on their self-ti­tled al­bum. In fact, all ex­pec­ta­tions brought on by that ac­claimed de­but are crushed into dust, re­veal­ing a new stan­dard by which the GØGGS march thumps.
