10-inch remastered LP

Cult-classic punk rock band, Butthole Surfers, announce the 10" vinyl remastered release of their fan-adored 1987 album, Locust Abortion Technician, via Five Music/RED Music. This marks the band's first release since 2007's compilation Pioughd/Widowmaker, ahead of new music in 2018 — the first in 15 years.

"Sometime in 1986 the band decided that we were tired of living on the road, that it was time to find a home. We were in San Francisco at the time, and chose our new home town by throwing a dart at a map," says guitarist Paul Leary. "The dart landed on Athens, Georgia, so off to Georgia we went. We soon realized that we couldn't actually afford to rent a house in Athens, but were able to find a 2-bedroom rental house in tiny nearby Winterville. We used our meager savings to purchase an old Ampex 8-track tape machine, two microphones, and recorded what would become our third full-length LP 'Locust Abortion Technician'."

Upon release in 1987, Locust Abortion Technician reached number three on the U.K. Indie Chart and was considered by fans to be one of the band's best albums. The album's influence is widely cited to have birthed grunge music and considered one of the top 50 album of all time by the late Kurt Cobain and featured in Robert Dimsey's 1001 "Albums You Must Hear Before You Die."

Arguably the most infamously named band in the annals of popular music, Butthole Surfers long reigned among the most twisted and culture defying acts ever to bubble up from the American underground. The Butthole Surfers grew to fame as punk rockers in the '80's and '90's. The legendary group were the first to fuse the antics of shock rock with an avant-garde, hardcore, and psychedelia soundscape. The newly reunited band (consisting of Haynes, Leary, Coffey and Pinkus) are writing and recording new music, nearly ready to feed the flames of their patiently waiting fans. The band are currently relaunching their socials, highlighting rare, retro images, archival footage and memories gathered throughout the years, and encourage fans to share their memories with the band on socials as well.
