The new video / single
From the forthcoming DISCIPLINE REACTION LP
Out this October via Vacant Valley
Discipline Reaction is the much anticipated debut LP from Melbourne based post-punk industrial unit Bitumen. This free-standing document was recorded at Magnet Studios in Coburg, and produced by the band with the help of Alexander Anglias (The Faculty, Ill Globo) – the phantom fifth member, and realised with the guidance of Peter Bramley, (Vacant Valley executive) who created the idiosyncratic cover art.
Experiencing their mesmeric live performances is to engage with a tense yet assured force. This year, the band have supported the likes of iconic UK post-punk group The Chameleons, and the needs-no-introduction Lydia Lunch, both in Melbourne and in Hobart as part of Dark Mofo festival.
Discipline Reaction – an apt title reflecting the bands sincere sense of drive and earnest audacity. This monolithic record faithfully portrays their electric dynamism and sheer conviction.
“grandiose post-industrial power”
