Connecticut art punk trio Perennial have revealed their new single, Tooth Plus Claw, which is out now via Bandcamp. The track is the latest to be taken from their second album, In The Midnight Hour, which will be released on CD & cassette on the 1st February 2022, with vinyl following on the 1st March 2022. Co-produced and engineered by Chris Teti of The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To DieIn The Midnight Hour started out as a sort of conceptual challenge for Perennial: “How to make a punk album that doesn’t operate like a punk album?”

“With ‘Tooth Plus Claw’ we wanted to make something absolutely ferocious, but without leaning exclusively on monolithic guitars to achieve that. So we started asking ourselves ‘How would this work if it were post-bop, or if it was dance music, or if we try something quiet where it would normally be loud, or a voice had to be the ‘riff’?’ It was a fun way of working outside of the typical post-hardcore math.”
