Wet Nuns exclusive single and Rough Trade East in-store for Record Store Day

“Snarling, sweaty, boisterously hurling expletives at you like great big lumps of molten rock… ridiculously appealing” Clash Music

“This totally rocks” NME Radar

“Make sure you see this band as soon as you can” Musical Mathematics

“What’s a girl like me to expect from a Wet Nuns gig? I saw pictures of Terence crowd surfing on two people...” Toast Magazine

Fresh off the back of being hailed as one of NME’s top 20 “Bands To Watch for 2012” and tipped for greatness by Arctic Monkeys’ Matt Helders, Wet Nuns are set to release an exclusive double A-side single on 7” vinyl for Record Store Day on April 21st. The band will also play an in-store at Rough Trade East to celebrate the release.

The 7” record will combine Wet Nuns two singles ‘Heaven’s Below’ and ‘Throttle’, and is everything you’ve come to expect from this big-riffing, crowd-surfing, cursing, death-blues duo, with their trademark stomach-churning guitars and downright ugly drumming stamped all over.

Having been on the road since February, including as support to Pulled Apart By Horses, Wet Nuns continue their trail-blazing tour with added dates at The Great Escape Festival, Crooked Ways Festival and Simple Things Festival this May.

If you haven’t witnessed a Wet Nuns show yet, then you’ve missed something damn awe-inspiring. The two-piece from Sheffield have been blowing venues around the UK apart with their hell-bent explosion of songs about “women, death and beer”.
