The Infinite Three share new album - UK band channels early Killing Joke, 90s SWANS, Cop Shoot Cop, heavy post-punk drone brilliance

"While metal is only one component of the trio’s sound, their dissonant, angular rock music is psychedelic, droning, and hypnotic." -- Metal Insider

"Blixa Bargeld backward-masking Horse Rotovator on an old gramophone... 5.5 out of 5!" -- Zero Tolerance Magazine

London, England trio The Infinite Three are streaming their third full length Lucky Beast today, following a trio of premieres this week. The album continues to develop the band's infectious and powerful hybrid of post-punk, drone and proto-industrial rock hearkening to early Killing Joke, 90s-era SWANS, Cop Shoot Cop, NIN, et al. 

Metal Insider launched the first single, "Dawn Accelerator" HERE. New Noise Magazine shared album opening mantra-like stomper Hydrogen" HERE. Spill Magazine premiered the epic album closer "Partisans" HERE. Hear and share the entire album Soundcloud HERE

The Infinite Three are Daniel Knowler, Paul Middleton and Samuel Mclaughlin. Taking cues from noise-rock, dub, drone and post-punk, their songs are warped constructions grounded in repetition and soaked in monochrome psychedelia.

Lucky Beast is The Infinite Three's third studio album (their fourth counting the fan-only Zeklof release from 2015).  Recorded with engineer Jon Clayton, whose past credits include Band of Holy Joy and The Monochrome Set, Lucky Beast continues The Infinite Three's dissonant take on art-rock.  A luminescent egg emerging from the banks of The River Effra. 

Paul Middleton and Daniel Knowler are both alumni of noise pioneers Cindytalk; Paul was also part of Kevin Martin's industrial-jazz heavyweights GOD; Sam McLaughlin has recorded extensively with poet and artist Gerry Mitchell. Daniel Knowler has worked on the MFOTWU project with performance artist Franko B. As The Infinite Three, they have worked with celebrated improvising saxophonist Tom Jackson, London based producer Den Liberator and recently supported psych-noise legends The Telescopes in England.

Lucky Beast is available on CD, cassette and download on April 22nd via Actual Size Music.
