| ShowsSelf Destructo Records announces split 12" Press Release
North Carolina power trio Revolving Beast and Scandinavian vocal/guitar quintet Turbojugend Kokomo to be
featured on split LP out in late summer 2014 via Self Destructo Records. We welcome them to the family!!
Revolving Beast is a NC based power trio comprised of guitarist Benjamin Earl, drummer Storm Castañeda,
and bassist Kenneth Ells. While their collective musical pedigree implies a form of rock and roll that is equal parts
aggression and complexity - see Valient Thorr, Thunderlip, The Kickass, The Church of Zann, and The Black
Hellatones for a short list of their previous work - they write songs in an unnamed argot. Amorphous and crystalline,
a landlocked island, they pierce your hull, sever your canvas, and nurture you with their affectation.
Revolving Beast has already played a handful of shows around the Southeast area and has been met with good
responses by the crowds.
Turbojugend Kokomo is a vocal group consisting of five drunken Norwegian rock n rollers who are members of
Turbojugend Oslo, the mother chapter of the Turbojugend, the global fan club of the Scandinavian hard rock band
Turbonegro. Formed in the winter of 2006 under the influence of pizza and beer and hailing from the cold city of
Oslo, these Beach Boy worshipping, Hawaiian shirt clad Scandinavians have traveled throughout Europe (most
notably Germany and Sweden) using their natural talents to have audiences walking into bars in curiosity and
walking out in disbelief since. They've played such events as the Welt Turbojugend Tage (St. Pauli, Hamburg) and
the Oslo Bloodbath; they've been featured on various recordings and tribute albums from various labels (most
notably for The Trashcan Darlings and for Turbonegro).
Turbojugend Kokomo is:
Tanked Mono - Vocals, Guitars and Tambourine
Party Cowboy - Vocals and Kazoo
Twin Turbo - Vocals and Triangle
Turbo Truls - Bass & Vocals
Peke PresHenning - Vocals
The two bands will have four songs each be featured on a limited split 12" LP out in Fall 2014 via Self Destructo
Records. Both bands, despite their difference in sound, are excited to be a part of this release and to be working
alongside each other.
The split will be limited to 300 copies and will be available through the Self Destructo Records webstore at
