10/01/13: ULTRA BIDÉ - NEW RECORD AND TOUR

Alternative Tentacles is excited to announce the tour dates for Ultra Bidé's 2013 Fall/Winter tour in support of their brand new CD and LP DNA vs DNA-c on Alternative Tentacles (virus 458).

Straight up skull-shattering is what comes to mind when hearing Japanese noisesters Ultra Bidé. On their first US record in over 10 years, they're hyper-energetic, relentless and fun! DNA vs DNA-c documents the trio's duel bass and drum attack, like a monster that pounds ever so thick and creamy, as if it were a custard donut cooked by Satan. Led by original Japanese punk, singer, & bassist Hide, Ultra Bidé will guide you across a complicated galaxy of sound and you're not always sure you will survive the voyage. Equally psychedelic as it is primal and fuzzy punk rock, Ultra Bidé is menacing and confident.

Ultra Bidé will be touring the USA and Canada upon the release of DNA vs DNA-c during October and November. Their legendary live sets head directly toward the stratosphere with unmatchable energy. They have got the musicianship and vigor that is clearly the work of heavy music experts. Hide's vocals drive the insane dragster that is Ultra Bidé far past the supersonic barrier, and the vivacity of the band's massive bass and drum sound will pulverize you into a pulp. These guys have been doing it since 1978 and show no signs of slowing down. Fans of the Unsane and the Amphetemine Reptile sound won't want to miss this.
