Akimbo Vinyl Records
Jersey ShoresAkimbo originally released the sinister and anthemic Jersey Shores on Neurot Recordings in 2008. Inspired by accounts of brutal and savage shark attacks that haunted the New Jersey coast for twelve bloody days in 1916, the band allowed the dark subject matter to fester into the grain of their instruments and recreated their sound anew. Steering away from the beer-fueled "rock for rock's sake" approach, the album explores a more mysterious and brooding territory than other releases and represents a new chapter of the Akimbo saga.
With six hammering, primal, evocative, haunting tracks that transport the listener through 45 minutes of timeless fear, Jersey Shores is a new weapon for Akimbo after ten years of aggressive battle through the hallowed pits of the rock 'n' roll underground. This 180-gram vinyl gatefold reissue also marks the continued collaboration between the Seattle band and Alternative Tentacles.Matawan

Navigating The Bronze (Awaiting Repress)Navigating The Bronze, the fifth studio album from Seattle's AKIMBO, is their heaviest and most dynamic release to date. This battle axe of a record was sculpted at Head Bang and Kill Your Mama studio in Louisville, KY with Chris Owens (LORDS, ED GEIN, YOUNG WIDOWS, etc.) whose talent for capturing heavy-hitting bands culminated in ten songs sure to crumble the walls around your stereo.
Navigating The Bronze, AKIMBO's second full-length on Alternative Tentacles (third including the 2007 reissue of Harshing Your Mellow - VIRUS 369) features a revamped lineup with fretboard wizard Aaron Walters on guitar and the familiar cement-tight rhythm section of founding members Nat Damm (drums) and Jon Weisnewski (bass/vocals). In addition to a refreshed guitar sound, Weisnewski's token throat-shredding has evolved into a deeper, more ferocious bellow, lending a primal quality to the vocals as well as fueling the inferno with new melodies.
Tracks like You Can Hear the Honey, Wizard Van Wizard and Huge Muscles will sound instantly familiar to the seasoned AKIMBO connoisseur with frantic pacing and more changes than one can count on two hands. However, Navigating The Bronze has its cache of surprises for old fans, including a classical tribute to Bach in Megatherium and drummer Nat Damm - a multiple Seattle Weekly Best Drummer nominee - doing his first ever solo track Roman Coins.
At once the most varied and sonically mature AKIMBO record thus far, Navigating The Bronze is certain to take the band to the next level. AKIMBO will be on the road constantly throughout 2007 and into 2008 supporting Navigating The Bronze.1. You Can Hear the Honey
