“Boston’s Sneeze has been relatively quiet since it released Wilt in 2014, but it appears the trio wasn’t just wasting time in the interim. Today brings the announcement of its new, six-song EP Rot on Glory Kid Records, as well as the first song from that EP, “Food.” The A.V. Club is streaming “Food,” which shows that Sneeze used those couple years to take its sounds to the next level. While the trio doesn’t entirely abandon its grunge roots, it’s now sounds like J. Mascis doing his best take on accessible sludge riffs. If anything, “Food” shows that Sneeze certainly isn’t going to let its sound go stale. ”

Careening out of Boston MA’s thriving Allston scene, Sneeze follow up 2014’s acclaimed ‘Wilt’ LP with six more ferocious cuts. Tracking again with Justin Pizzoferatto at Sonelab, the trio return in somehow even heavier and wilder form on 2016’s ‘Rot’ EP. Laid down in three days, the band is captured at their rawest and nerviest yet, punching and reigning in equal amounts. Mastered by Carl Saff, and with art by John McCarthy, ‘Rot’ is certain to make a worthy addition to any modern punk collection.
Preorders include a limited 12″ vinyl press of 300 (100 on Black Smoke color variant) or a limited deluxe cassette that comes with a silkscreen layout. Both come with a digital download of the record.
