Metallic hardcore trio TEETH are proud to announce that they have signed a deal with Canadian record label New Damage Records to join their roster.

For those unaware, the band is composed of vocalist Blake Prince (ex-Straight Reads The Line, Anniversary), guitarist Chris LeMasters (ex-Dead And Divine), and drummer Ryan “Legs” Leger (ex-Every Time I Die).

Along with the news of their signing, the band have also debuted a brand new song called ‘Writhe’. This is what LeMasters had to say about it.

“‘Writhe’ hits extremely close to home for me. I wrote it after finding out that a woman very near and dear to my heart had been both physically and mentally abused over the course of 15+ years. I never knew — she never felt safe enough to tell anyone. But that’s just MY experience. ‘Writhe’ touches on those moments of helplessness and anger when you or someone you know and love has been oppressed, harmed, or abused by someone in a position of power. It dives into those dark moments when you fetishize doing awful things to that person. ‘Writhe’ is directed towards the oppressors, the cowards, the abusers, and the people who violate your trust, and take advantage of it — whether it’s crooked police, a family member, or a spouse.

I know this applies to so many people’s lives right now, too. Whether it’s the repeated, systemic abuse (and murder) of innocent black/POC citizens by corrupt law enforcement, or COVID-19 causing so many of us to be stuck at home unable to work, attend school, etc., resulting in more and more instances of domestic abuse as victims no longer have a daily escape. We wanted/NEEDED to write a song that gives those people a voice. It’s angry, spiteful, and violent because we refuse to ignore those primal human emotions — good or bad. They’re REAL, and I hope this song acts as an outlet of sorts to those victims.”

The band are expected to release their debut EP later this year, with more details to follow in the coming weeks.
