The Slaughterhouse Chorus premiere “Wellsville” off upcoming farewell album “…In The Name of Progress”

*whistles in americana*

The Slaughterhouse Chorus are an ameri-kinda punk band from Albany, New York who many Dying Scene readers have come to love and cherish over the years. They offer a slice of something different… a folkier side that showcases the roots of American rock and roll music with a punk rock (detre)mentality. The pace is snappy and upbeat, never lingering too long on the classisized roots stylings of dual guitarists Chris Jordan and Jay Bonafide albeit allaying due credence in thought out swampy blues signatures at times while at others laid out in freewheelin’ heartland cow punk vibra-tones. 

The bands new album …In The Name of Progress  is set for release on May 31 on  Built4BBQ Records, a co-operative label co-pioneered by members of The Slaughterhouse Chorus amongst other well-meaning musicians from the Empire State. Sadly, this will be the band’s final release, as they plan to part ways at the closing of this year. …In The Name of Progress is available for pre-order on vinyl and digital download here.

The Slaughterhouse Chorus has gifted us faithful fans with another early release, this time for the song “Wellsville” which is the final song on the upcoming EP and one which the band expects to represent the culmination of their time together and with their listeners in a grand finale. It is a song about “the American dream and the accompanying suburban nightmare. We’d have to assume it’s also the only rock ‘n’ roll song that references both Van Morrison and ‘The Adventures of Pete & Pete’. It’s the longest, heaviest, and somehow most exhausting thing we’ve ever done, and a song that we collectively feel is the best we’ve ever written and recorded. As the closing track on our last record it seems like a good high point to go out on.” And then, as they say, The Slaughterhouse Chorus will ride off into the sunset.

Check out the exclusive early stream for “Wellsville” below.

Album Review: The Slaughterhouse Chorus – s/t

With a band name the likes of “The Slaughterhouse Chorus”, one would expect the music composed and performed by said individuals to reside somewhere in the neighborhood of death metal and/or perhaps speed/black metal. Thankfully, for those fortunate enough to have discovered The Slaughterhouse Chorus, the band’s musical stylings more closely resemble punk rock than anything else (no offense to the metalheads in the crowd).

Truth be told, The Slaughterhouse Chorus is a blend of twangy, down-home hillbilly rock infused with a heavy dose of punk and a tinge of folk. (Not exactly what you’d expect from a band hailing from New York City.) If the Supersuckers fucked Larry And His Flask, or vice versa (as I haven’t a clue who would be giving or receiving), The Slaughterhouse Chorus would be their illegitimate love child.

The band’s inaugural self-tilted EP is a 13-track hell-bound hayride through the heart of America via the streets of The Great Apple; and is just as unpredictable. The album sways seamlessly, yet purposefully, like “Amber Waves of Cocaine”, the opening track (which sets the stage for the ensuing managed mayhem). The following three songs, “A Month Without”, “Built for BBQ” and “Let’s Get Invisible” exude more country-esque qualities than punk, but “For God and Country” rekindles the rock ‘n’ roll fervor. “The Full Nelson” is nothing more than pure, unadulterated rock, replete with ample baby-makin’ guitar solos; which ironically segues into a grab-your-partner swing-type instrumental affectionately dubbed “All My Mistakes are Your Fault Tonight”. Coincidental? I think not.

“Fish in a Barrel” is arguably the standout track on the album; a nice little ditty fans will thoroughly enjoy whilst fending off a hillbilly horde in a sweaty mosh pit. “May 21” and “Guns N’ Cattle” draw the album to a close on a honkey-tonk high note, while lucky number 13, “Eviction Day”, sends the self-titled EP off slowly and steadily into the desert/city/backwoods/bayou/country night.

Bringing such a wide array of genres together on a single album, let alone a band’s first effort, is an achievement in and of itself. Cowboy hats and flatbills alike off to The Slaughterhouse Chorus for a job well done.
