Part Chimp on Sunday 18th November 2018
Having mostly laid dormant since 2009, London noise-rock titans Part Chimp finally returned in 2017 with a new album Iv, released via Rock Action.
Iv follows three acclaimed studio albums, a live record, compilations and split singles and EPs alongside artists including Torche and Hey Colossus, sharing stages along with the way with the likes of Melvins, Deerhoof, Harvey Milk and Isis, as well as headlining last year’s Raw Power Festival.
Since their formation in 2000, Part Chimp have carved their own place in the archives of heavy music, with their fuzz-laden seismic rock. With Iv, the band have recorded their most precise piece of work to date, perfectly balancing crushing and intense riffs with undeniable melodies.
With nods to boundary pushing artists from the 60s to the present - from MC5 and Sabbath, to Big Business, Earth and Harvey Milk - it’s clear Part Chimp are not content to simply be labelled as one of the UK’s loudest bands. In everything the band create, songcraft is as important as the volume at which is played. This has never been more true than now.
'Iv proves, if proving was needed, that Part Chimp are masters of us all” - The Quietus
'This isn't a return to form, merely a continuation of an already extremely high one” - Drowned In Sound
“A must hear for fan of glorious, horrible noise” - Classic Rock
