Turbo Fruits Announce New Album


On September 11th, Serpents and Snakes Records will release Butter, the 3rd full-length record from Turbo Fruits. The Nashville, TN, quartet plays rock n’ roll filled with wild abandon and unfettered debauchery; with buzzsaw guitars and pummeling, primal rhythms. Recorded in eight days in Austin, TX, with Spoon’s Jim Eno at his Public Hi-Fi studio, Butter is the follow up to their 2009 Fat Possum album Echo Kid and the 2007 self-titled Ecstatic Peace debut. It’s a spastic, slab of fun-filled fury, a double-live-gonzo Athena busting out of The Flamin’ Groovies’ Teenage Head, thrashing it’s way through punk, surf, and power-pop and leaving a wake of blown minds and melted faces.

Butter is the product of 200 days a year in the van, sleeping on floors, accumulating the kind of stories you would never, ever tell your grandkids. Butter is the product of two years spent cranking out singles for Turbo Fruits’ own Turbo Time Records, the product of organizing their annual ocean-bound rock n’ roll party, The Bruise Cruise. Butter is born from busting their asses the way most bands pull bong rips. Butter is a wild, raw record for the kind of folks that aren’t ashamed to get loose, get sweaty and get down.

SPIN has premiered the first track off of Butter, titled “Sweet Thang.” “It’s a lonesome heartbreak-rocker,” SPIN says, “that could nicely slot between the festival-size anthems of the Walkmen and the garage-bound rambles of the Strange Boys on a pretty great sad-bastard mixtape.”

Turbo Fruits recently kicked off a North American tour with Deer Tick at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park. They will continue to wind their way across the United States and Canada, stopping in major cities including Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, and Vancouver, culminating on June 15th at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston.
