The Spindle Sect’s crossover sound has positioned them as one of the most provocative bands to emerge this decade. Fusing elements of metal, hip hop and electronica with a sci-fi lyrical concept, The Spindle Sect, originally from Cape Town South Africa, have left an impression on UK audiences since relocating to London in 2008.
Debut album ‘Bubonic Tronic’ produced by The Scifientist and The Spindle Sect, mixed in LA by Dave Schiffman (Limp Bizkit, NIN, System of A Down, Red Hot Chilli Peppers) and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Deftones, FNM, Korn) starts exactly where previous releases ‘Episode 1’ (EP - 2008) and ‘Is Your Planet Safe?’ (EP – 2010) left off, with both gaining critical acclaim from UK and SA press. ‘Bubonic Tronic’ will be available digitally on 13th April 2012, with a limited run of signed physical copies available as part of The Spindle Sect’s tour with US rap/metal pioneers (hed)p.e. in March.
Lead single from the album ‘Escape Route’ is a banger, and show cases the bands ability to switch between ambient electronics to a hard-hitting bounce-fest with ease, showing intelligent MC skills from dueling front men Snake and Cavin Chambers. Wearing their influences proudly, this track incorporates the best elements of Korn, Limp Bizkit and Cypress Hill. ‘Escape Route’ was made available for free download on 5th March.
The Spindle Sect have toured the UK with Senser, appeared at Kick Out The James Festival with Ill Nino, Infest The Senses with TRC, and will perform at 2012’s Guernsey Festival amongst others.
