The Sludgelord Song Premiere - "Walk" by Milwaukee's Volunteer

By: Aaron Pickford

Today is another first at The Sludgelord, with yet another debut band, which is mandatory and malevolent earworm from Milwaukee’s Volunteer. For those not familiar with the band, since the release of the “Goner” EP in 2014, Volunteer whose sound echoes that of Unsane, Today is the Day and “Strap It On” era Helmet, have progressively and succinctly evolved.  Certainly with the addition of Kevin DeMars on drums and former drummer Mark Sheppard moving to guitar, Volunteer have arguably reached their musical zenith in 2016.

Volunteer alongside Minnesota's Buildings and set to release a split 12" EP featuring brand new material from both acts and is set for release via Triple Eye Industries on 26 August 26 2016 

On Volunteer’s side of the split, it finds them at their angriest and most aggressive, with bigger guitars, tighter rhythms and furious vocals. Buildings who will make their Triple Eye Industries debut have attempted to explore new sonic boundaries of what a trio can create and with it, the compositions contained herein are just as batshit crazy as they are sparse, resulting in an unhinged noisy and chaotic listening experience

With a release date set for August 26, we have teamed up with our buds at Dewar PR to premiere a track from Volunteer entitled “Walk” which you can check out below. You can preorder the release now on clear with blue splatter, opaque yellow or traditional black colored vinyl. Get it before it’s gone. Pre-order the split here:
