Dealers marks their fourth release (their 3rd full-length).
Unauthorized Volume Dealers was recorded and mixed by Ken "HiWatt"
Marshall at Mushroom Studios in Vancouver and showcases the bands powerful
ability to mix controlled noise with abrasive guitar strangulations.
Released three months earlier in Canada, it's holding steady at number 5 on
Canada's National Chart even now. Facepuller
come to Alternative Tentacles Records via our friends at Bang-On Records.
Unauthorized Volume Dealers is the first wide spread release this
band has had outside Canada. So cherish and revel in the flying shrapnel

enough genre-mixing to satisfy metal-heads and punk rockers alike!
Facepuller's Brent, Ian and Brad have
top-secret, covert jobs that don't allow them to tour much outside of Canada,
but there is a video for "Bored With Beauty," directed/produced by Bill
Morrison (Skinny Puppy, GWAR).
