Austin’s down n’ dirty noise merchants Total Abuse are gearing up for the November release of their hotly anticipated Deranged Records debut Excluded, but this morning we’ve got an exclusive advance stream of a grimy, feral aural salvo dubbed “Scabs” below.
“‘Scabs’ is a song I wrote about internal guilt and a physical skin condition I suffer from,” vocalist Rusty Kelley tells Decibel. “It is one of the heaviest tracks on the LP. I feel like this track is a good representation of the new album. We are trying to showcase something beyond the usual hardcore-meets-noise genre we are known for. To me — and hopefully others — ‘Scabs’ is a representation of an intense and complex and heavy track that will be jammed again and again.”
