Castrovalva To Release Debut Album

Debut Album 'We Are A Unit' released Monday 12th April 2010. Castrovalva have been nurturing their Ghetto hard rock into something as unique, as it is powerful.

We Are A Unit is Castrovalva's eagerly awaited debut album released on Brew. This release sees the introduction of the new permanent member Leemun Smith on vocals who was responsible for the debut mini album artwork (see for more of Leemun's work), boosting the setup to a power trio.

Recorded and mastered by Ross Halden At Ghost Town Studios (Forward Russia!, Sky Larkin, Rolo Tomassi), We Are A Unit represents the first full length glimpse of Castrovalva as a collective three piece with Leemun Smith's unique voice playing third instrument in the new setup, the band are now more equipped than ever to push their own boundaries of experimentation.

Castrovalva 'We Are A Unit' track listing:

1. We Are A Unit (Intro) - 1m19 2. Pump Pump - 1m59 3. That's What I'm Talking About - 1m49 4. Thuglife - 2m41 5. Unit Radio - 59s 6. We Don't Go To Ravenholm - 2m07 7. Hooliganz R Us - 2m24 8.

After a brilliant 09 which saw the trio tackle support slots with Israeli noise merchants Monotonix, Health & An Albatross, the band have been locked in the studio perfecting their sound for their first full length LP We Are A Unit, set to drop on the 17th May in Europe this year along with a full UK & European tour.

Don't just take our northern praise coming from our cakeholes, check out what these fine people have to say:

"Weirdo rock from a leeds duo taking a cue or two from fellow townsfolk That Fucking Tank but twisting a formula of exuberant brutality with neat proggy-toned sidesteps, this album is a headfuck like few others on these pages, impressively subversive." - Rocksound Magazine

"You can imagine their live shows to be a tangle of noise and righteous poses" - Rock a Rolla Magazine

"Bass pumps through amps set to levels that make the soundman's eyes roll and the drums are given the kind of beating that yer regular punch up victim can't relate to." - PlanB Magazine
