3teeth endexFour years after the release of their last full-length album and with several teases of new music unleashed the past few months, 3TEETH is now sharing all the details behind their much-anticipated LP ‘EndEx’ coming this fall. ‘EndEx’ will be released by Century Media Records on September 22, showcasing the modern industrial act at their most raucous yet, unveiling bold revelations of humanity’s techno-social disintegration behind a brutal soundtrack that sounds all the alarms.

After giving the first glimpse at the new material with the early release of ‘Paralyze’ (featuring Ho99o9), 3TEETH re-emerged in May with more previews, including their gripping sonic salvo, ‘Merchant of the Void’ that touches on the bleak landscape of modern society amid A.I. takeovers and economic collapse. It was hailed as a one of the “best new songs” by Metal Hammer and Revolver. While Metal Hammer says the song “traces lineage in both Al Jourgensen and Trent Reznor,” Revolver hails the song as “utterly gigantic and over-the-top in the best way possible” and applauds the return of 3TEETH in 2023 at a time “when we needed their apocalyptic, incendiary industrial-metal most.”

Next came ‘Slum Planet’ taking aim at the ills of a sick planet obsessed with over-consumption at all costs. With today’s album announcement, 3TEETH shares the newest single for the moody missive ‘Scorpion’, a track in which the band’s instrumental arsenal is tempered by alluring female vocal chants that provide an ambient feel. It’s featured alongside a combustible video, with the band excavating deep desert secrets. It was helmed by director Vicente Cordero & 3TEETH front man and creative lead Alexis Mincolla.

Says Mincolla: “The scorpion symbolizes the challenge to confront and integrate those parts of ourselves that we repress, ignore, or fear. It invites a descent into the depths of the personal and collective unconscious. Its venom is the entropic catalyst for the dissolution of old, rigid structures of the psyche, making room for rebirth. To acknowledge and embrace the scorpion is to accept the necessity of change.”

Ahead of the release of ‘EndEx’ in late September, 3TEETH will continue to release a new single every month. Other highlights on the album include a cover of TEARS FOR FEARS’ ‘Everybody Wants to Rule the World’, continuing 3TEETH’s penchant for aggressive reworks of pop songs, previously seen on FOSTER THE PEOPLE’s ‘Pumped Up Kicks’, SWEET’s ‘Ballroom Blitz’ and DEAD OR ALIVE’s ‘You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)’.

To lay the foundation for the new material, 3TEETH migrated to the deserted quiet of Joshua Tree, escaping from the palpable anxiety of their hometown of Los Angeles for fresh new perspective. The material is currently being wrapped up with a solid extended team including the accomplished sound designer Mick Gordon (best known for his work on the gaming phenomenon DOOM) who produced several of the tracks along with producer Nick Rowe and mixer Sean Beavan (NIN), bringing in another dimension to the band’s unmistakable sound.

Says Gordon, “3TEETH are one of my favorite acts. They proudly fly their own unique flag. The new album charts course through the next stage of our vanity-led evolution as a species, and by that I mean the album is a world unto itself. I’m just stoked that these guys have allowed me along for the ride.”

‘EndEx’ will be available in CD, Gatefold LP, and digital album formats. Special formats include:
- Red LP (available at all EU outlets)

3TEETH first manifested their cyber-social intentions as early as 2013: a musical entity born out of Mincolla’s Downtown L.A. weekly gatherings known as ‘Lil’ Death’ with Xavier Swafford (keys, synth), Chase Brawner (guitars) and Andrew Means (bass, synth) joining Mincolla. 3TEETH released their first self-titled album the following year. Alliances with the likes of TOOL and RAMMSTEIN resulted in the collective’s first live performances and a rise to further notoriety with the release of 2017’s album ‘shutdown.exe.’ which took 3TEETH to global stages. Working alongside producer and mixer Sean Beavan (NIN) at new label home, Century Media, 3TEETH upped their own sonic arms race with Metawar (2019) and entered a new echelon of cultural consciousness with a collection of tracks including the biting ‘President X’ and their haunting take on Foster the People’s ‘Pumped Up Kicks’
