Killing the Blog!

In case someone has been wondering why the Throat blog hasn't been updated since July, we've moved all updates, news and nonsense to our Facebook page since that seems to be where people see them. It's unlikely that we'll be updating the blog in the future, but worry not even if you aren't on Facebook, you can still see all the updates etc. there without signing in.

We will be re-designing our website eventually (most likely coinciding with our next release) to include a news section for all the "serious business" regarding Throat, but don't worry, a dick-joke or two is bound to end up there as well.

Signing off with a final "so, what's up with Throat" -list:

We recorded some new shit in October. You'll hear it all eventually and in the meantime you're stuck with this studio teaser:

We have three gigs lined up for November and unless something weird happens, that'll be it for 2014.

21 November 2014
Suisto-Klubi, Hämeenlinna w/ Can Can Heads, Dead in the Water, Saarnastuoli

28 November 2014
Rekisteri, Turku w/ Pain Nail, Stolen Kidneys, Jaakko Vanhala

29 November 2014
Varjobaari, Tampere w/ Pain Nail, Stolen Kidneys, Jaakko Vanhala

Everything else remains classified at this point, so fuck you.

Hail to England!!!

Huge thanks to all the people that came to the UK gigs, all the bands we played with, everyone who helped organise the gigs and helped us out in any way. We had a blast!

Extra special thanks to Hebosagil for being the kings of rock'n'roll and Kunal for being the king of the road, master of the universe and the god of everything.

If anyone has photos/video of any of the gigs, let us know!

Here's "Soft White Walls" from Stuck on a Name Studios, Nottingham:

Metal Universe internet radio show did a rather chaotic but VERY METAL interview with Throat after the Bristol gig. Some talk on Throat, more talk on Slayer, Black Sabbath, Star Wars and all sorts of stupid shit...

New shirts, same old design

Due to public demand, we decided to print one more batch of shirts with the controversial logo design. As always, sincerest apologies to Bruce Pavitt and Jonathan Poneman, but those guys probably still owe money to TAD so it serves them right.

Black print on white Gildan Heavy Cotton shirts, available in S, M, L and XL sizes. Sorry fatties, ladies and kids.

You can order yours from Kaos Kontrol or through Throat's Bandcamp page and we'll have these on our upcoming UK tour as well.

One buck Manhole

In celebration of the 1 year old "Manhole" LP, you can now download the digital version for a measly $1 on Bandcamp! If you liked the old price more, go ahead and pay seven bucks for it, we won't hold it against you...

If you want the real thing, you can still order the vinyl from these labels:

Aurora Urealis reviews Manhole

Matias Huttunen reviewed the "Manhole" LP in his Aurora Urealis #1 zine:

“Turkulainen Throat on ihastuttanut ja vihastuttanut keikoilla sekä pienjulkaisuillaan jo vuodesta 2009 ja nyt onkin ensimmäisen täyspitkän vuoro.
Vuosien varrella muotoutunut ote on taas ottanut yhden askeleen meluisampaan ja vihaisempaan aiemmasta. Tältä levyltähän ei puutu riitasointuisia riffejä tai elämän nurjia puolia kuvailevia sanoituksia. Vielä kun Euthanasia Coasterin introna toimii Pelle Hermannin teema, on monille lapsuuden traumojen uudistuminen tämän levyn tahtiin ajankohtainen asia. Levy ei todellakaan ole mikään mukavan, aurinkoisen sunnuntain soundtrack.
Tämä levy on harmaan ja loskaisen maanantain soundtrack. Sen äärimmäisen vittumaisen päivän jolloin elämäsi vastakappale on jättänyt sinut ja karannut ulkomaille parhaan kaverisi kanssa, laskut ovat rästissä kolmatta muistutusta myöten ja kaiken kukkuraksi yläkerran naapuri on onnistunut tappamaan itsensä ammeeseen sekä tietysti jättänyt vesihanan päälle.
Levyn mukana tulee sen transukantta tukeva sanoitusliite; kappaleiden sanat on ujutettu homolehden s/m-seuranhakupalstan sekaan. Mukana tulee myös MP3-koodi.”

First show of the year 2014!

We're playing with Agasia at a local bar called Kulmabaari on February 15th.

All sorts of cool stuff in the works for this year, but obviously none which can be revealed yet since 90% won't happen anyway.
