Because life is chaos and your Thursday afternoon could use some more of it, here’s “Clean”, the opening track to Regrets, the latest full-length from War Brides.

I dunno about you fellas, but this week has been an endless slurry of stress, frustration, and responsibility. After a week like this, it sure would be nice to unwind with some bruising noise rock and one or two hundred macro-brews. Fortunately, Chicago’s War Brides have half of what I need with the opening track from their latest record, Regrets. “Clean” is anything but. This song is caked with with filth and stained with the sweat of dozens of sweltering basement shows. Break some household items while bobbing your head to War Bride’s razor-edge guitar riffs and Jesus Lizard-influenced yowls. Dig in below and don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty.

Regrets drops April 28th on Third Eye Industries. Preorder it here, then go like War Brides on Facebook and tell ’em, “Yaaaaaaugghhh”.

    Sounds good. I’ll bookmark it.

  • Count_Breznak

    Weeks been pretty chill so far. Too many people celebrating something or other tho, my alcohol intake was a bit higher than usual.

  • Old Man Doom

    You nailed it, Joe: this week fucking sucks. The guitars in this song are nasty in the best possible way.

  • I like the Jesus Lizard and all them four-letter-long album titles of theirs.

  • Óðinn
  • Waynecro

    Thanks, Joe! That’s pretty cool and all, but I think I’ll still be blasting The Drip’s The Haunting Fear of Inevitability in the gym this evening.

    • Eliza

      I have only heard the first song off of that album and I have concluded that it’s great, despite it not being my thing.

      • Waynecro

        Nice! I think the album is just super. I’ve been blasting it a lot lately. It never fails to get me through the second leg day of the week (which is usually a real drag).

        • Eliza

          Well, if the rest of the album has the same energy as that first song, I’ll like it.

          • Waynecro

            I think you’ll be very pleased with the rest of the album.

    • I listened to The Drip at the gym the other day! It’s a real fucking faceripper.

    • more beer

      I like that album more every time I listen to it.

    Really? This guy is out of jail already? If anybody needs to be in jail for a long time, it’s Tim Lambesis.

      Don’t do steroids, kids (even though they work really well until you suddenly have to go off them and then grow moobs in prison).

      • Black Smallbeard

        i dont imagine theyre very cheap either. unless you live in mexico

        • Waynecro

          That’s probably true. I mean, an ambitious lifter who wants to cheat might be able to find a wealthy older woman to finance his steroid use, but he’s probably better off going natural and spending his money on protein powder and creatine. I mean, you’d have to be pretty desperate for rapid gains to turn yourself into a chemistry experiment/boy toy, right?

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Chemistry experiment/boy toy sounds more appealing than rapid gains tbh.

          • Waynecro

            BRAH! COME ON, BRAH!
            GAINZ >>>>>>>>>>>>>
            EVERYTHING ELSE <<<<<<<<<<<<<<

          • Black Smallbeard

            i mean, theres a lot to be said for this

          • Óðinn

            I’d have sex with a super-hot lady who gave me money to work out. I’m not keen on the ‘roids though. Only natural gains.

          • Waynecro

            I can certainly think of worse scenarios than that one.

          • Óðinn

            Yeah. Me too. A lot worse.

          • Waynecro

            I’m writing my Craigslist posting now. Do you think I should use terms such as patron and benefactor instead of phrases such as sugar mama and cougar babe down to pay for a slice of beefcake on the regular?

          • Óðinn

            Yes. Definitely.

          • more beer

            Try desperate old whore.

          • Black Smallbeard

            ill try it but not because you told me to

          • more beer

            I was only making a suggestion.

          • Dumpster Lung

            Beefcake for roast beef?

          • Dumpster Lung

            I’d rather not do ‘roids, but I’d wear a banana hammock if a sugar momma wanted me to 😛

          • Óðinn

            Thanks, Dumpster Lung. All points of view on this topic are important. 😉

        • Óðinn

          They’re taking jobs from hard-working American steroids. 😉

        That probably had it’s advantages on the yard. At least he probably always had a date.

        • Óðinn

          His milkshake brought all the boys to the yard.

          • more beer

            Hey titties in a prison are a rare commodity. He probably had all the cigarettes and Ramen noodles his heart desired.

          • KyleJMcBride

            Those ramen seasoning packets are pretty valuable on the inside from what I read.

          • more beer

            Legal tender so to speak.

    • Sid Vicious Promos

      George Lynch plz! Why would you talk to this slackjawed jackanapes? Please do what you’re best at and go perform with Lynch Mob. Talking about pressing issues isn’t your strong suit GL.

    • more beer

      California lets everyone out early.

  • This is very good. Chicago puts out some good not-so-metal material! (And sorry about the pissed jeans, mate)

    • Óðinn

      …And that was the last time Joe lent out his pants to anyone.

  • KyleJMcBride

    I’ll have some fun digging myself out of the house tomorrow unless the landlord busts out the snowblower.

    • more beer

      It was 70 here today. More of the same tomorrow.

      • Sid Vicious Promos

        Lucky. It was so snowy in my area.

      • KyleJMcBride

        We’ve got Winter and it’s here to stay, more snow in the 10 day forecast.

        • more beer

          Our 10 day forecast ranges from 55 to 75 during the day. Saturday will be the coldest night at 30. I am not complaining. Since my business isn’t so good when it is cold out.I will have all of my work caught up tomorrow. Plus have some nice checks coming!

      • Black Smallbeard

        was about 35-40 with flurries all day here, but has been stupid warm all week otherwise. i dont think we’re getting any of this snow

  • KyleJMcBride
    • Black Smallbeard

      i remember when I used to be the liquor

  • Edward

    Pretty rad sound. Probably cool live with some beers.
