Members of Shit & Shine, Butthole Surfers and Marriage come together for one of the noisiest records you'll hear this year

Laredo is the long-awaited debut from USA/MEXICO set for release via Repose next week, and above, you can stream it in full a week ahead of its release.

The trio, from Austin, Texas, is made up of guitarist Craig Clouse of Shit & Shine, drummer King Coffey of Butthole Surfers and bassist Nate Cross of Marriage. Their debut record, made up of seven tracks, taken in five original recordings from the group as well as a cover of The Fall's 'L.A.' and a self-titled track by Bullets For Pussy.

Within the record, the three smash together aspects of their past work delivering a record that's every bit as noisy and discomforting as you might expect. It's one to be played very loudly to fully take it in its scuzzy powers - that's if your ears can handle it. The record is out on June 2 via Riot Season and can be pre-ordered here.
