Like the legendary Sonics before them, this Seattle band personifies high-energy rock 'n' roll, and their 3rd album is an even rawer, more feral take on their primal garage-punk sound. The band delivers one concise, explosive, no-frills blast of rock 'n' roll after another for one of this year's most exciting rock albums, local or otherwise.

Hey, we're The Earaches from Seattle, WA. We draw on the entire history of rock and roll for our influences, but what comes out is usually referred to as "garage rock" or "punk rock," or "garage punk," and sometimes "punk garage." While we're comfortable with any of those tags, we just call it HIGH OCTANE ROCK N' ROLL, meaning that we play music that we like, for ourselves, with all the soul we can muster. Yeah, we've been around the track a few times, but as long as there's gas in the tank we'll keep the hammer down, spurred on by an insatiable love of music.

We live by the philosophy of the THREE F's: FUN, FUZZ, and FUCK IT IF YOU CAN'T TAKE A JOKE. We don't like to get too political, but in the current climate it's not only hard to keep quiet, it's irresponsible. We strongly encourage you to start your own band or fanzine, organize or attend protests and fundraisers,write or e-mail your elected officials, or just raise your voice in any way you can.Don't complain, take action. And VOTE! We won't tell you what to believe, just to stand up for what you believe in: SILENCE = COMPLICITY.

Until next time, GET THE REVOLUTION OUT OF YOUR HEAD - TAKE IT INTO THE STREETS INSTEAD!
