Intense and intriguing - The Trumpets of Death kick start their UK tour with an exclusive performance of new album Teeth + Teeth = Teeth at Eaglescliffe's Waiting Room, this Sunday, 1st May.


The Trumpets of Death involves Benjamin Wetherill at its heart with a band of crazies making all manner of cocophony around him.


Their exciting new album is causing the right kind of stir - here's a review from last Friday's independent:


" On the intriguing Teeth + Teeth = Teeths, Leeds combo Trumpets Of Death investigate a niche, but potentially fruitful area where traditional folk music rubs up against avant-noise, post-rock textures.


 It's a surprisingly congruent marriage, perhaps because both forms operate at a fundamental level, free of irony. The sea shanty "The Press Gang" is typical: a creeping, crawling undertow of improvised sound – clarinet, bells, percussion, yawning string drones – beneath Ben Wetherill's otherworldly tenor, a tale of cruelty rendered in a suitably night marish soundscape. The murder ballad "Cruel Ships Captain" is a turbulentavant-rock cacophony, while elsewhere "The Paper Plough" shifts from a trudge of reeds, drums and organ, malevolent as a golem on the march, to a strangely joyous gypsy polka. Weirdly fascinating."
