New RTX To Be Released In October

From Drag City Publicity:

I would like to introduce you to the new RTX record JJ Got Live RaTX hitting streets Oct. 21 on Drag City. Jennifer Herrema's throaty crackle snakes through a labyrinth of scrap rock and salvaged arena metal, a combination that’s nearly as confounding and contradictory as any Royal Trux output. Her vocals are smoked out but amplified, punctuating steroid-pumped instrumentation yet balancing those fist-waving experiments against a rough core that keeps Herrema more woman than machine. Even the murkiest sludge has a shine to its surface here, but there’s still something basement-floor dirty and low-grade psychedelic inherent to the vibe — Herrema’s style of spitting out lyrics like she’s loosening phlegm. The shredding guitar riffs will rip you up and hang you dry!

Beyond the real deal is the unreal deal, from which descend RTX, who are Jennifer Herrema from Royal Trux­she who skins her own furs­pluplus four iron-hided shred-men, one of whom is on drums simply to underscore such a happy surplus of shred capability. RTX is music from Decline of Western Civilization Part 2 and vocals from Decline of Western Civilization Part 1 and they are hesh perfection so pure the graves at Trenton stir wary anew. I was saying Guns N Roses with Roky Erickson's Enigma years­but that falls short on both counts, and I was as shocked as you to figure that out. - Chris Ziegler LA RECORD

JJ Got Live RaTX is the white - hot luxury sound for sure. Jennifer's pipes are smokin' and she's offering no mercy at it's finest. The songs got flashy virtuoso drums, full-wave synth sweeps and shred guitar that will knock you on your ass and leave you slobbering for more.
