It marks the group's signing to Houndstooth

Bristol-based group SCALPING have released a new track to mark their signing to the Houndstooth label.

'Deadlock' is a joyous bashing together of acid, industrial racket and techno, and it comes ahead of more new music from the group in the coming months, according to Houndstooth. You can listen to the new track above.

Speaking about the track, SCALPING say: "'Deadlock' has been in our live set for over a year now and it's always a highlight; it's fierce, relentless and gets a great reaction whenever we play it. With us not being able to play it live for the foreseeable, it felt like the perfect time to record a definitive version of the song. After coming off tour we finalised and recorded this version of 'Deadlock' at the start of the year, before lockdown, split between our homes in Bristol and Rockfield Studios in Wales."

'Deadlock' is out now on Houndstooth.
