Irk – Life Changing Porno

Leeds 3 piece Irk make ugly, angular, noise-fused, math rock, consisting of drums, bass, and vocals. Having recently announced the release of their debut album “Recipes from the Bible” on 7th December, Irk have now shared a fresh slice of  crushing noise rock and post-hardcore with the new video for their love song ‘Life Changing Porno’. Vocalist Jack Gordon comments,

“Life Changing Porno is a love song. It’s about how those who decide whose lives are worthwhile are really keen to know who and how you fuck, and why, and where the right and wrong answers lead.   The song features guest vocals from Kelly Bishop (Beige Palace, PUDDIN’) and the video was created by Technoir Productions, who also filmed our recent live session. The claustrophobic and disorientating feel of the visuals is the perfect pairing for the shifting rhythms and tempos of the song, making it all the more intense.”

Entirely self produced by the band, Irk have birthed a lumbering colossus of a record with “Recipes from the Bible”, caked in the world’s filth and brimming with astringent riffs and withering surrealist lyrics. Since releasing their debut EP “Bread and Honey” and a split EP with Wren in 2015, Irk have toured the UK and Europe extensively, whilst developing new material.

They have shared the stage alongside the likes of Pissed Jeans, Liturgy, Dope Body, Whores and Blacklisters, as well as a thundering set at Arctangent Festival 2017 (with Converge, Boris, TTNG) and Wrong Festival 2018 (with Alpha Male Tea Party and Future of the Left)

“Recipes from the Bible” was recorded and mixed by Irk’s drummer Matt at Glide Studio, with final touches added by mastering engineer Nick Zampiello (Daughters, Converge) at New Alliance East in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
