Destruction Unit offers download of ‘Negative Feedback Resistor’ via Adult Swim / Sacred Bones


“The Arizona quintet Destruction Unit go about their business in a way that inverts most recieved ideas about how a rock group evolves…each subsequent album has sounded rawer, punkier, and more enraged than the last – the opposite being vastly more common.”
– The Wire Magazine

“In about five years, Destruction Unit, from Tempe, Ariz., has wormed its way toward its present status as one of the most hair-raising bands in North America. It plays tight, fast punk wrapped in deep layers of pulsating fuzz: The effect is something between a ritual and an attack. “Negative Feedback Resistor” delivers you a band in its own world, but the record is intensely charged, almost floating, saturated with wild action.” – New York Times

“‘The Upper Hand’ is the sound of a band exploring the outer limits-experimenting and coming up with a sound that connects the dots between massive and empty. It’s a full encapsulation of what Destruction Unit do, and it’s one of their best recordings to date.” – Pitchfork

About Destruction Unit and Negative Feedback Resistor:
For two years now, the psychedelic Destruction Unit has been keeping the world waiting for a new album. And it’s not because they’ve grown up or gotten soft, rather because they’ve been in the streets and in your backyards, pushing the freak agenda and imminentizing the alien-eschaton. They’ve been up and down and all around this globe, battling the greedy club owners, show promoters and control pigs to bring the new American heavy underground through your back door. Now here we are, with the psychedelic Unit’s second album for Sacred Bones, Negative Feedback Resistor.
In the spirit of solidarity with the other revolutionary communities of our sisters and brothers, the psychedelic Unit urges you to use this album’s energy, energy your speakers can hardly contain, for its intended purpose: to break the chains which you, at the dawn of your understanding, have fastened around your hands and feet. And to see to it that the thrones of every despot erected within you are destroyed. This is crazed-psychedelic-freek-noise guerrilla warfare and these are our streets. The pigs of the law can use their system to manipulate and censor our messages. The control creeps can keep their airwaves safe and comfortable. But none of them have been able to make us turn our voices or our guitar amps down. Destruction Unit sacrificed their ears to make this album as loud of a statement as possible. Will you lend them yours?
Negative Feedback Resistor was produced by The Ascetic House and Joe Cardamon in 2015, with the help of Adult Swim and Sacred Bones Records. It was recorded by Joe Cardamon and Greg Gordon at Valley Recording Company, mixed by Ben Greenberg at The Bunker and mastered by Alex DeTurk at Strange Weather.
Destruction Unit is R. Rousseau, J.S. Aurelius, N. Nappa, R. Rousseau, A. Flores with additional accompaniments by A.Z. Hungtai (Dirty Beaches, Last Lizard), D. Bolles, (The Germs), L. Rahbek (Lust For Youth, Posh Isolation) and J. Sanes (Hoax, Liebestod).
