COFFIN TORTURE Release New Single "Crawling Spleen"
COFFIN TORTURE have released "Crawling Spleen" the latest single from their upcoming album Blennoid, due out on October 7th via Sludgelord Records
The band comments, "'Crawling Spleen' is one of the earliest songs we wrote as Coffin Torture and has gone through several variations over the over years. We wanted to capture it as it is now for Blennoid. It's one of the heaviest and weirdest songs we've written."

The band began back in 2006 under the name TSAVO, before briefly performing under CAVE DWELLER Prior to settling on COFFIN TORTURE in 2008. After releasing a handful of basement demos and years of playing shows in the SC/NC/GA tri-state area, the Dismal Planet LP was released in 2018 as the first band on the Sludgelord Records roster. The new album Blennoid ventures deeper into vile realms. The title track, loosely based on the Stephen King short story The Raft, is about a river of slime that lures people to their doom with fools gold on the banks. Seemingly less likely ideas have sparked inspiration across the album from "Budo", influenced by an old martial arts documentary called Budo: The Art of Killing to "Crawling Spleen" from which the ideas came by an episode of the cartoon series The Angry Beavers.
COFFIN TORTURE are unafraid to wade through the murky waters to uncover the grim carcasses lying beneath. Embrace the morbid and enjoy the haunting delights of Blennoid. Well, those of you with a strong stomach.
