Gum Takes Tooth: Second album Mirrors Fold and second single White Fear out now!
14 Oct 2014
Gum Takes Tooth's mighty second album, Mirrors Fold is out NOW. Issued on splatter coloured vinyl, CD and digitally, the album sees the forward-thinking duo delve deep into pan-ethnic drum rhythms, vibrant electronic sound shapes and whispering psychedelia.
It follows their acclaimed debut album Silent Cenotaph and new single White Fear, the second release from Mirrors Fold.
With the new record comes a refinement of the band's sound and depth of production detail. It is a sonic leap forward from the out and out metal-flavoured barrage of Silent Cenotaph into more controlled and deeper, denser rhythmic soundscapes and fully-formed song structures.
White Fear finds the band at their most succinct and immediate, a psychedelic fizz and whirr of electronic hooks, warped vocals and sinewy drums.
Both are available to purchase from our store HERE

Love for Mirrors Fold:
“Striking a pleasing amalgamation between gut-screech noise, acid-bleed walls of gloopy psych and transfixing (almost tribal) rhythmic propulsions is no easy feat but Gum Takes Tooth have created such a potent concoction of these elements on Mirrors Fold that it almost feels coldly scientific.” - 9/10 Loud And Quiet album of the week
“A totally twisted genius... deftly shaped into something at once warped and weird, wild and experimental, but also totally hypnotic, and melodic, strangely lovely and in its own way, extremely catchy. A new favorite for sure. And a total shoe-in not just for Record Of The Week, but for our year end best of's too” - Aquarius Records
"A record that feels like Apocalypse Now set in Laser Quest... a battle worth fighting" - NME
“Superior, effective listening” - The Quietus
"An hour of the most pleasurable pain" - London in Stereo
