To celebrate the release of their highly anticipated new album, “Sunrise on Slaughter Beach” acclaimed US groove rockers that evening COUPLING have announced that they will be live streaming a very special performance of their upcoming show in Baltimore for free Youtube channel this Saturday, September 17th

That “Live at the Hammerjacks” The live stream begins at 10pm EST and will feature a full set list featuring their extraordinary new album in its entirety.

Fans who can’t tune in live can also watch the show on-demand as it airs live on the band youtube channel after its first broadcast.

In light of the upcoming release of their brand new album and this very special live stream, COUPLING frontman Neil Fallon Shares: “‘Sunrise at Slaughter Beach’ is a strange record. It was largely a studio creation. It reminds me a lot “Jam Room” in that regard. Under normal circumstances it might not have occurred to us to use vibraphones, theremins or backing vocals (thanks, Deborah Bond and Frenchie Davis!). But as the saying goes: necessity is the mother of madness. That youtube Streaming our September 17 performance at Hammerjacks is a way to say thank you to all the fans who have supported us over the past 31 years, especially the last two years. It’s also a good way to inspire us to pull ourselves together and learn the new material.”

COUPLING‘s thirteenth studio album, “Sunrise on Slaughter Beach” is a hard-hitting summary of everything that makes the band great, and another huge leap forward in career longevity. New crackers like “Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)”, “Nosferatu Madre”, “Skeletons on Mars”, “Jackhammer Our Names” and “Mercy Brown” take their rightful place alongside COUPLING Classic. “Sunrise on Slaughter Beach” is the natural culmination of what COUPLING started as a teenager in the early 90’s.

Accepted at The Magpie Cage recording studio the album was produced and mixed in Baltimore, Maryland grammy-nominated Tom Dalgety (GHOST, ROYAL BLOOD, PIXIES) with additional technique from J Robbins (JAWBREAKER, AGAINST ME!, THE SWORD).

drummer Jean-Paul Gaster Initially thought Album Thirteen was a backlash to the polarization and uncertainty of the pandemic years. Maybe a little more upbeat, 2013 style “Earthrower”. “The more the songs took shape, the less I saw such an album”, he said. “Something else happened. The record we ended up with is in some ways the most diverse record we’ve made in a long time.”

“Sunrise on Slaughter Beach” introduces some “firsts” into the COUPLING Canon: vibraphone (from gaster), theremin (J Robbins) and female backup vocals by singers Deborah Bond and Frenchie Davis. The album’s nine songs are a varied ride destined to please longtime fans and intrigue newcomers alike. It’s a new chapter in an ever-evolving story that means as much to the fans as it does to the band.

COUPLING share more together THE GRATEFUL DEAD, HURRY UP and THE ALLMAN BROTHERS than their heavy riffs and heady twists and turns suggest. Because like these bands love the supporters COUPLING are there for the experience, the community and the authentic connection. Love COUPLING is a sense of ownership, belonging, and belonging.

Classmates from Seneca Valley High School Neil Fallon (Singing),Tim Sult (Guitar),Dan Maine (bass) and Jean-Paul Gaster (drums) has been connected by an unshakable musical and personal bond for three decades now. Shaped by the same region that was born BAD BRAINS, SMALL THREAT and RITES OF SPRING, COUPLING creates hyper-literary and libertine jams steeped in hardcore rage and flaky, athletic stoner rock.

stand out similarities COUPLING‘s longevity to the history of The three little pigs. “You can quickly build a house with sticks, but it falls apart. It takes much longer to build it out of stone. I have a feeling we did. That was a marathon. It took a long time to build but it will stay here for a long time.”

COUPLING has just started a US tour. They will be accompanied on the 26-date run HELMET and QUICKSANDwho rotate the main support slot each night, and Special Guest JD Pinkus.
