"The '90s skronk and roadkillery is balanced out nicely by metal moves and actual groove and the occasional McClusky-esque melodic flourish from the vocals. The fury and frustration of expectations shot to hell compressed into 3 minute last chances." -- Noisey

"Chaos infused with a touch of melody and lots of dissonance." -- Metal Injection

Reno, NV noisepunk band Elephant Rifle premiere the first video from their new album today via CVLT Nation. Watch and share the video for "Gold Standard" HERE. (Direct YouTube HERE.)

"Something I love about the video," says vocalist Brad Bynum, "is that it both conforms to the stereotype of Reno as weird and trashy, but also demonstrates how fun that is."

The 10-track full length is available to hear and share HERE. (Direct Soundcloud HERE.) Noisey previously premiered the first single, "Bone Voyage," available to hear and share HERE. (Direct Soundcloud HERE.) A second track, "Rasputin" was launched via Metal Injection recently, available HERE. Brooklyn Vegan shared "Red Shirts" recently HERE
