United Fruit To Release New Album ‘Fault Lines’

I’ve been a bit slow on the uptake here but, United Fruit are another band currently creating a splash in and around Glasgow and with new album ‘Fault Lines’ ready to go (May 30th I believe) and a UK-wide tour due to start in support of the record, things look set to get a lot busier for this quartet.   Especially since they were recently announced as one of the 16 bands to peform on the T Break stage at this year’s T in the Park Festival.  ‘Go Away, Don’t Leave Me Alone’ (posted below) whets the appetite somewhat, an incendiary slab of furious post-hardcore/post-punk.  It’s literally bursting with youthful energy and there’s a nice balance between the discordance of the swarming, razor sharp guitars and melody on this number — It is most certainly not without its hooks.  To these ears, there’s a strong connection with ‘Madonna’-era …Trail of Dead, though there’s also mention of bands such as Fugazi, Shellac, At The Drive-In and Oxes on their last fm profile and various other reviews. ‘Fault Lines’ comes on the back of the locally acclaimed ‘Mistress, Reptile, Mistress EP’ and looks set to propel these lads into a wider audience.
