Portuguese trio play Moth Club on Nov 8th as part of 50+ date of Mexico, the UK and Europe
|At long last, the Russos are back!Â Over two years on from their second full-length Distress Distress and a year from their mind-blowing collab effort with Radar Men From The Moon, Porto-based outfit are now announcing their much-anticipated third album. Titled â€˜Kompromatâ€™, the new LP is comprised of five songs â€“ donâ€™t worry, theyâ€™re naturally all at least seven-minutes long â€“ and is due for release November 8th. To announce the album, 10 000 Russos are today sharing the first single â€˜Runninâ€™ Escapinâ€™â€™; a track thatâ€™s just as, if not more, distorted, malevolent and repetitive as what weâ€™ve all come to know and love from this lot. You can stream the single and pre-order the new album below.
Taking its name from the Soviet-era Russian term for â€˜compromising materialâ€™ (the words earliest use traces back to KGB slang) that was gathered on politicians and business owners as leverage to blackmail and coerce, the monolithic drones heard on â€˜Kompromatâ€™ hint at a two-fold revolution â€“ a subconscious upheaval, as well as a socio-political one. 10 000 Russos say of the record: â€œLike all of our work, the songs started from jams and were worked from there but this record feels fatter and has this kind of dance-y vibe to it. Unlike â€˜Distress Distressâ€™ it feels like there is a sense of release there, despite the oppressive feeling that runs through a lot of the album.â€ Keeping with that theme, they explain that â€˜Runninâ€™ Escapinâ€™ is about â€œrandom unpredictable situationsâ€ and the volatility inherent in them, something thatâ€™s borne out as the song unfolds throughout its running time.Â
The band are currently out on a huge 50+ date tour thatâ€™ll see them stop in Mexico, the UK and mainland Europe. You can find the tour-dates below, as well as a pre-order link for â€˜Kompromatâ€™.
