Leeds 3 piece Irk make ugly, angular, noise-fused, math rock, consisting of drums, bass, and vocals.
Having recently announced the release of their debut album “Recipes from the Bible” on 7th December, Irk have now shared an intense live session video featuring new track ‘I Bleed Horses’, recorded by Technoir Productions in Leeds. Vocalist Jack Gordon comments,
Entirely self produced by the band, Irk have birthed a lumbering colossus of a record with “Recipes from the Bible”, caked in the world’s filth and brimming with astringent riffs and withering surrealist lyrics.
Featuring braying sax courtesy of The Physics House Band’s Miles Spilsbury, and shrieking guest vocals from Beige Palace’s Kelly Bishop, “Recipes from the Bible” sees Irk contort their sound into new and terrifying shapes.
Since releasing their debut EP “Bread and Honey” and a split EP with Wren in 2015, Irk have toured the UK and Europe extensively, whilst developing new material.
They have shared the stage alongside the likes of Pissed Jeans, Liturgy, Dope Body, Whores and Blacklisters, as well as a thundering set at Arctangent Festival 2017 (with Converge, Boris, TTNG) and Wrong Festival 2018 (with Alpha Male Tea Party and Future of the Left)
“Recipes from the Bible” was recorded and mixed by Irk’s drummer Matt at Glide Studio, with final touches added by mastering engineer Nick Zampiello (Daughters, Converge) at New Alliance East in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
