Band announce the release of their debut album; check out the album opener below

For the last two years MEATRAFFLE have been building up a healthy following through a series of live shows and a clutch of tracks shared online, but they are now ready to unleash their debut album and you can exclusively check out the first taste of the album in the form of ‘Oppenheimer’ with its nuclear visuals making an obvious reference to the track’s titling.

The album, entitled HiFi Classics, will be released by Trashmouth Records and has been produced by the label’s Liam D May. A ‘testament’ from the band ahead of their debut album’s release reads thusly: “For the last 2 years we have sung songs under the banner of MEATRAFFLE. If we had to begin it all over again we would, of course, try to avoid this or that mistake, but our main course would have remained unchanged. We shall die as proletarian revolutionists, dialectical materialists and consequently, irreconcilable atheists, our faith in the communistic future of music is not less ardent. Indeed it is firmer today than it was in the days of our youth. Life is beautiful. Let the future generation cleanse itself of corporate indie, false metal, Britpop and X-Factor, and enjoy it to the full.” The album is out on November 13 and can be pre-ordered here. MEATRAFFLE support Fat White Family on their upcoming tour of the UK. The album launch takes place on the day of its release (November 13) at The Windmill in Brixton.
