With THE ARTERIES preparing to invade North America on tour with The Flatliners and Dead To Me, the UK punk group has unveiled a stream of its recent critically acclaimed full-length, Dead Sea. Stream the record here.
Dead Sea came out in October 2010 in the UK and a vinyl pressing became available on Paper + Plastick in early 2011. To celebrate the stream, Paper + Plastick Records is putting the record up for sale in vinyl format for a short time. Also, has a contest to win a copy of each of the three vinyl variations for free here.
Dead Sea was subject to favorable reviews from critics, with Alter The Press calling them “a fucking great punk rock band” in their 5-Star review. “Whether you got into punk rock through Punk-O-Rama or through Fall Out Boy you will find something to cherish on Dead Sea,” the review reads. “Long may The Arteries continue doing this themselves.” Meanwhile, in their 4.5-star review, Punktastic called Dead Sea “a ballsy record with attitude,” adding, “The Arteries have a confidence and an ability to just write great songs and great choruses that will stick in your head for a long, long time afterwards.”
While their upcoming two and a half-week weave through North America won’t the band’s first U.S. tour, it might be their most anticipated. Supporting Dead Sea, the band will tour its way from New York to The Fest 10 in Gainesville, Fla. It will the tour its way back up to Washington, D.C., before heading back home.
