• Now that’s what I call album art.

Exhausted, the debut full-length from noise-rock outfit Den, opens with screaming electronics, barked vocals, and rumbling distortion—and the three-piece speeds ahead with its weirdo-hardcore-Krautrock trip from there. The group’s been teasing out the release of Exhausted for a little more than a year, and now the LP is finally seeing the light of day. Den is putting it out on primo local label BLVD this week, and on Saturday the band plays a free record-release show at Cole’s Bar; Oozing Wound, Wishgift, and Foul Tip help with the celebration. Ahead of the show we’ve got the exclusive premiere of Exhausted, which you can listen to in its entirety below. Press play, crank it up, and while you’re at it, read my 2012 feature on Den.
