A cathartic combination of alt-rock, grungy riffs and math-rock undertones, Eat Your Own Head are a four-piece band based in Norwich, UK, who plummet into the depths of personal chaos, love and anxiety.
Having released two EPs under their earlier iteration of HANK, tracks from these releases earned crucial support from the likes of BBC 6 Music, Zane Lowe, and The Line of Best Fit.
Notorious for their live shows, the band quickly garnered a dedicated fan base and landed themselves support slots with artists such as The Physics House Band, The St. Pierre Snake Invasion, Sugar Horse, Gaffa Tape Sandy and Cassels to name a few.
Now coinciding with a rebranding to Eat Your Own Head, the band return with their latest single ‘Poltergeist’, a track which takes aim at the darker corners of the human psyche. Ferocious and desolate, the track tackles inner demons head-on: “I fall dead, come back. A little black on the inside” eerily opens the song, flowing over jagged time signatures. Technicality, huge riffs, and vocal delicacies contrasted against vein-bursting screams, showcasing the four piece’s capacity to combine hooks into a rock song with uncharacteristic features.
Fittingly, ‘Poltergeist’ was recorded during lockdown in a live take at Drongo Records Studio, with vocals and many unsettling guitar overdubs added afterwards. The recording captures the incendiary live energy that Eat Your Own Head have become known for and heralds the forthcoming debut album set for release late 2021.
