'Ancient Secrets' due on March 11th

London punks Turbogeist are set to release their new EP 'Ancient Secrets' on March 11th.

Live, Turbogeist are a blur of sweat, hair and riffs, with each show containing a rare potency. Now the London group are attempting to nail that energy on record, with new EP 'Ancient Secrets' set to be released on March 11th.

A typically oddball offering from the band, the five track EP drops on March 11th via Spinefarm Records. Containing a few nods towards Husker Du, this is untamed grunge for a new generation.

Here's a quote from Jimmy. “Ancient Secrets pertains to our obsession with all things fantastical and cryptic. It's an abstract title, but these are abstract times. We didn't wanna make an oi oi punk angst record, although that’s how we started out. We wanted to make something more tongue-in-cheek, more weird. We were always turned on by a splatter gun of influences. We didn’t want to make a punk or hardcore or glam or thrash record; we didn't wanna make anything that felt sonically linear. If the EP were a drug it would probably be acid, as it could go in a few directions. It could be scary, but it could also make you laugh or cry, or make you realise that nothing is real and we are all just a collection of atoms moving very fast to no discernible end.”
