Cliterati announce new album Ugly Truths/Beautiful Lies, stream first single “Latinx Taken”; confirm U.S. tour

Official press release:

Oregon hardcore punk practitioners Cliterati will release their punishing Ugly Truths/Beautiful Lies full-length August 30th via Tankcrimes.

Over a year in the making, Ugly Truths/Beautiful Lies is ripping fifteen-track/thirty-two-minute socio-political exposé on the USA’s divisive administration with humor and quick wit. Having performed over a hundred shows in that time, test driving many of the tracks live, Cliterati is sharper and more ravenous than ever before. Ugly Truths/Beautiful Lies was recorded by longtime comrade Greg Wilkinson (Necrot, High On Fire) and mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust, Power Trip) with cover art by legendary Japanese artist Sugi (Doom, Death Side, Hellshock) whose illustration reflects a personal interpretation of Ugly Truths/Beautiful Lies title track.

In advance of the record’s release, Cliterati is pleased to unveil “Latinx Taken” for public feasting. Issues vocalist Ami Lawless of the track:

“My mom would have been considered illegal/undocumented. I’ll never understand this reference to other human beings. A good portion of this country was once Mexico and now people whose ancestors walked and worked this land are not welcome here… and those in power will use us for whatever they can. No one is illegal.”

Ugly Truths/Beautiful Lies will be released digitally and on limited LP in four color variants: 100 on crystal clear, 200 on black vinyl, 300 on neon violet and 400 on slime green. Find digital pre-orders at THIS LOCATION and vinyl pre-orders at THIS LOCATION.
