Pure Rubbish Release Debut EP
The four track affair will serve as a stopgap for the band’s full-length debut album, ‘Glamorous Youth’, which will now be released next spring through Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne’s Divine Recordings label.
“We’re recording some more tracks for the album,” reveals frontman Derek Dunivan when questioned about its delay. “I think ‘Kiss Of Death’ serves as an adequate introduction to Pure Rubbish – it definitely captures the more punk side of us, but our sound, all around, is more straight up rock with that punk influence.”
In addition to three previous unreleased and suitably rockin’ Pure Rubbish tracks (‘Kiss Of death’, ‘Electric Heart’ and ‘Parts Unknown’) the band have also included a cover of AC/DC’s ‘Let There Be Rock’.
“The label thought it would be a good idea to cover that song for an upcoming motocross compilation,” continues Derek. “We agreed and they liked it more than they expected and decided it should go on the EP since it’s a fast hard-driving song, like the other EP material.”
In other Pure Rubbish news, the band will return to the UK for a series of club shows in October. For dates, stay tuned to www.metalhammer.co.uk.
