Fuzz Evil Premiere Non-Album Exclusive Track “Born of Iron”

fuzz evil

When Fuzz Evil‘s debut album arrives early in 2016, “Born of Iron” probably won’t be on it. That’s the whole idea. The Arizona three-piece made their debut late last year via a split 7″ with Chiefs (streamed here), and as much as the trio of guitarist/vocalist Wayne Rudell, bassist/vocalist Joey Rudell and drummer Marlin Tuttle have done to support that single, between touring alongside Switchblade Jesus earlier this year and founding and overseeing the inaugural Borderlands Fuzz Fiesta in Tucson, one imagines their full-length will hit with some fanfare. You might say it’s starting early with the premiere below of “Born of Iron.”

The six-minute fuzzblaster, as I said, isn’t intended for Fuzz Evil‘s LP, which will be released on Battleground Records, but from what I understand, the recording is complete. Album’s in the can. “Born of Iron,” with its easy rolling groove, weighted nod and last-minute wah overload, was cut at the same session, and a celebration of their two-year anniversary as a band and as a precursor to any concrete word about the full-length — up to and including its title, which has yet to be revealed — the Rudells (who both also play in Powered Wig Machine) and Tuttle, have decided to give the song away. In addition to the premiere on the player below, it will also be available as a name-your-price download through their Bandcamp, where one can also pick up the aforementioned split with Chiefs.

If you happen to be in that part of the universe, Fuzz Evil will be supporting Acid King at this year’s Southwest Terror Fest the weekend of Oct. 15-18 in Tucson, and no doubt more shows will surface between now and then as well. “Born of Iron” is up for digging in below, and underneath that, Wayne Rudell offers some comment on the first two years of Fuzz Evil and what the trio have been through in that time.

Please enjoy:

Wayne Rudell on Fuzz Evil’s second anniversary:

“I can’t believe it has been two years. It really has been a non-stop party with Fuzz Evil. We have such a great chemistry and we have been writing a lot of music. The band really hit the ground running from the start and a lot a lot of great opportunities opened up for us. We got picked up by Battleground Records, who put out our 7” split with Chiefs. Shortly after that, we shared the stage with Fu Manchu, Crobot,The Truckfighters. Nick Turner’s Hawkwind, Witch Mountain, Lord Dying, Jucifer, Midnight Ghost Train, Electric Citizen, Black Pussy,and Mothership. That’s a pretty surreal list of great artists to have performed with in the short period of time Fuzz Evil has been around. We like to stay pretty busy and have some pretty cool things on the horizon. We are really looking forward to playing Southwest Terror Fest this year with Acid King. I have always been a big fan of their stuff and am thankful for the the opportunity to play with such a talented band. I can’t reveal too much yet, but I can tell you Fuzz Evil will be making an appearance at this year’s Borderland Fuzz Fiesta. We are gonna try and get the new record out in time for the festival, but if it isn’t in the cards, you can expect it definitely around Spring 2016.”

The currently untitled Fuzz Evil full-length will be released by Battleground Records in early 2016 on 180 gram colored vinyl and digital. More details to come. Fuzz Evil/Chiefs split 7″ available at www.battlegroundrnr.com.
