Direct support for The Garden

neo available worldwide from Sub Pop
 
So Pitted have premiered an official video for “woe,” from neo, their Sub Pop debut with Brooklyn Vegan. “woe” was shot in Seattle and directed by the Fabulous Downey Brothers.

Brooklyn Vegan says of the new visual, “Featuring some out-there animation and green-screen antics, it’s a hyperreal match to So Pitted’s melted noise (see premiere September 19th).”

So Pitted have also scheduled a fall tour in support of neo, acting as direct support for The Garden. The trek begins October 9th in Reno, NV at Holland Project and ends November 4th in Santa Barbara, CA at Velvet Jones. Please find a complete list of tour dates below.

So Pitted recently visited 90.3 KEXP for a live performance. Watch the session, which includes
neo highlights “cat scratch,” “pay attention to me,” “woe,” as well as a new track titled “no name #4.” [link here]. You can also watch the band’s recent (+very official) video for “feed me” [link here]. The humorous visual, directed by Eleanor Petry, is loosely inspired by Jane Child’s late 80s pop classic (+ video) “Don’t Wanna Fall In Love.”

So Pitted’s neo is now available on CD / LP / DL / CASS worldwide from Sub Pop [link here]. The album was co-produced & mixed by So Pitted & Dylan Wall and recorded at The Old Fire House, Media Lab, Spruce Haus, the band’s practice space and Tastefully Loud in Seattle. neo was also engineered by Wall at Tastefully Loud and mastered by Eric Boulanger at The Bakery in Los Angeles.

What people have said about So Pitted:
"Minimalist force is what Seattle punk band So Pitted does. They excel at it. On neo, their debut, the trio sound like the proverbial (mechanical) bull in a china shop—except that bull is intentionally there to fuck up some fine dinnerware and is determined to have a hell of a time doing it."  - Pitchfork

“Catharsis and candor are embedded in these explosive tracks. So Pitted tap into the void that the likes of Black Flag and Nirvana looked into and saw themselves in.” - Consequence of Sound 

“It’s grimy and tormented all right, but intent on subverting the many adolescent cliches and
connotations that come with grunge.” -  The Guardian

“Maddeningly loud, loosely formed, disgusting like a romantic weekend trip down the local sewers.” - DIY

“Like an 80s DC hardcore band covering a forlorn Sebadoh demo (until it descends nihilistically into its final minute of diehard industrial static).” - The Quietus

“Their primal, scrappy rock and roll scrapes all optimism from your soul until you just don’t care about anything anymore.” [8/10]  -Drowned In Sound

“…A barbed tarpit of sound.” - Loud & Quiet

“Snotty, snarling and belligerent.” - Uncut

neo is part debut-album, part audio assault.” [4/5] - Upset 

“It’s early in the year to make this sort of claim, but we can say with confidence that in ten months’ time you’ll be looking back on neo as one of 2016’s best debuts, by some distance." - The Skinny

“...A raucous, inspiring noise, the buzzsaw melody is matched to wailing feedback - imagine Bikini Kill set against early Mary Chain and you'd probably be in the same ballpark.” - Clash

“Quite simply, neo is noise rock like nothing else.” - London In Stereo

“...making a name for themselves with a sneery, warped, post-apocalyptic punk sound and wild stage show.” - Brooklyn Vegan

“…Buzzing with nausea and excitement. [rot in hell] burns with the urgency of the music you need to make or you’ll
crumple, music you’d be making whether other people heard it or not.” - Impose

“So Pitted are poised to start a riot that’s very much their own.” -Record Collector

“The triad has haunted Seattle’s DIY underground since 2010, sometimes playing three shows a week (seemingly
re-dying their hair a different color for each), honing an incredibly loud, atonal style of neo-grunge, equal parts confusing and enthralling. Koewler plays her guitar through a bass amp to achieve the band’s defining metallic low-end scuzz. Rodriguez, plucking out chaotic leads on his heavily effected guitar, barks unintelligibly feral screeds into a microphone so hard that his veins often look as though they’ll pop. Downey usually performs with self-fashioned pipe-cleaner antennae sticking out from his head. He occasionally switches places with Rodriguez to mumble his own strange songs, a left-field take on ’80s New Wave filtered through a filthy meat grinder.”  - Seattle Weekly

“Boldly going where no rock band has gone before—and fucking around a bit, too.” [“Breaking” feature] - FLOOD
