DAIS Records present Bestial Mouths
Bestial Mouths came together in 2009 from a desire to create original music that is foreboding without relying on cliché. Christopher Myrick (Synths) and Ebrahim Saleh (Drums) create an unpredictable ground for singer Lynette Cerezo to walk on. Hovering above the clamor, Lynette’s haunting, atypical vocal delivery transforms cryptic nightmarish imagery into tightly wound, barely controlled pop.
Early in their career, frantic live performances combined with a self-released demo captured the attention of DAIS Records, whose catalog includes Cold Cave, COUM Transmissions, Robert Turman, aTelecine and Iceage. Bestial Mouths divided their time in 2010 between the road and the studio, recording a split with Blessure Grave and sharing stages with Former Ghost, Soft Kill, Water Borders, Nervous Gender, The Delta Mirror, Soft Metals and Jewels of the Nile.
Hissing Veil, Bestial Mouths debut full length available August 10 on DAIS Records is 40 minutes of intense gloom. A meditation on the relationship between transgressor and victim conceived in a flurry of automatic writing, Hissing Veil is an urgent declaration revealed in a barrage of primitive rhythms and feral calls.
Bestial Mouths will be touring extensively this summer in support of Hissing Veil. Yes, a great silence is waiting. Prepare yourself.
Limited to 500 hand numbered copies on clear vinyl.
Founded in 2007 by friends Gibby Miller and Ryan Martin, DAIS Records prides itself on re-releasing
lost/unheard/forgotten material and providing a home for bold new sounds in need of release.
While releasing obscure, challenging material and noise recordings, the label echoes the intentions of a classic imprint like Folkways, collecting and disseminating sound to broaden the understanding of a social field.
Impose Magazine invited DAIS to curate a “Labeled” feature and more and for the first time, DAIS Records offers up a complete sampling of all previous releases.
