Update 16-02-2015: The Album has been mixed and mastered and is going into production as we speak and the artwork for the album has also been completed and is off to the printers. Thanks to all the Kickstarter pledgers and you paitience. So not long now. The pledgers will recieve there copies plus the goodies first and then the album will be in the stores soon (stay tuned for actual date here) distributed by Rhythm Method. Show some support for New Zealand's only stench rock band and see if we can get this baby charting. Cheers.

Update 05-02-2015: The pledgepacks for the people that contributed to the Kickstarter fund are nearly completed. The shirts are being printed and the various other goodies are underway too. After a delay with the mixing the album is finally in the can and sounding totally rocking. It is being mastered as we speak and will go into production soon.

Update 28-01-2015: Sales of the 7" are going well and the album is finally mixed so we are currently getting the artwork underway with the album to be out asap so we can get on the road and bring it to a venue near you so you're able to hear the songs live in their full grunting glory. Also we are happy to announce that Nigel Regan and Andrew Ashton will be using FIREHORSE fx pedals which are handmade New Zealand Pedals. The Firehorse Fuzzkill is a fantastic little fuzzpedal which can get a great Stooges/MC5 rhythm sound and crank the gain up and you've got a wailing fuzz from hell great for leadbreaks. Also they come in a nice compact size (massive grunt from a little package). I reccommend you check out the webiste www.guitareffects.co.nz . Stay tuned for more updates.

Update 08-01-2015. We are really proud to have finally released something on vinyl. Long overdue, a 7" on red vinyl with 'Creedence' on one side and our mates across the ditch 'Seedy Jesus' have their song 'Shakin the Fuse' on the other. Somewhat in the spirit of 'Faster Hooves' where we let our support bands at the time (Fuckmutha and Steak) put a song each on the single from the album 'Flik Y'self off Y'self' which we were touring at the time. A huge thanks to Lex from Seedy Jesus for putting this together. This is available through our Bandcamp page which you can go directly to from here and there are only 135 available on red vinyl and once sold out we won't be doing another run. Sales from this will go towards producing the next 7" which should be 'Glory Glory' with the remix on the B-Side.

Update 27-12-2014. The new album 'Narcocorrido' is in the final stages of being mixed by Andrew Buckton and then ready to go into production for early February with a National tour to follow. Also in the New Year we will be releasing our first ever 7" vinyl of 'Creedence' featuring our Aussie mates ' Seedy Jesus' on the flip side. Stay tuned for when this will be up for sale early 2015. 


Update 23-11-2014. As of late November 2014 we are in the final stages of recording our new album and will be releasing the title of it very soon. The working title of the album is 'Ravens Loot' taken from a line of the last song we recorded 'Creedence'. So in the coming weekend (the 29th and 30th) Booga and Nigel will be going to Auckland to work with Jol Mulholland to lay down Booga's stenchy vocals and then in December Andrew Buckton (producer of Blood Will Out) will be mixing. And when finished it will be released early February (this is when our Kickstarter supporters will recieve their extras) followed by a national tour so you can come out and hear us pound it out live. We're looking forward to completing it and would really like people to post their opinions, likes/dislike on our message boards. We will create a one especially for the new album. Thanks for your continued support and rock on and 'Long live the Stench'.
