Veterans Of Pleasure is the fifth album by STNNNG (pronounced “STUNNING”), Noise-Indie-Post-Hardcore heroes from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.
No, they do not sound like any of those three Minneapolis bands you can think of from VH1 Classic oversaturation or Rolling Stone’s retro-active fawning. They sound more like a lumbering giant laughing madly while tangled up in some barbed electric fence.
In other words, like heavy rock in the art-y/noisy Touch & Go vein.
Think punk rock tenacity with metal power, classic rock riffage, vaudevillian showmanship and the hyper-literate lyrics of a man seemingly possessed by a full encyclopedia set of subtly deranged characters.
Co-released with Modern Radio.
Recorded and mixed by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio. Mastered by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service.
