Nerveshatter Announce March Tour to SXSW; Debut Album out Now

Posted in Whathaveyou on January 25th, 2019 by JJ Koczan


Sludgy New York noisemaking concern Nerveshatter issued their debut full-length, Madhouse, on Jan. 9. The self-released offering contains a tight and pummeling eight tracks that meld the will to bludgeon with a bit of angular exploration and, as one might expect, a bit of that particular concrete intensity that is as much a part of NYC culture as “famous” pizza and bikers getting doored. Songs like “Death of a Spaceman” bring a sense of atmosphere to go with their crunching and nodding progressions, and no matter what’s happening at any given moment, the threat that at any point the four-piece might totally lose their shit is always lingering. Until they do, anyway.

Celebrating the release, the four-piece — which includes members of Devoidov and Thera Roya — will hit the road in March and head south along the coast to make their presence felt at SXSW for at least two listed shows in Austin, Texas. You’ll note they have a couple days off after the second, so you never know when they might pick up more, but the fact that they’re getting out at all to support their digital release speaks volumes as regards their overall intent. And speaking of volume, you can hear Madhouse below.

The tour’s called “Oh, the Humanity!” which is fair enough, and the list of shows as per the social medias is as follows:
