Chinamen Pre-Release New Album Online

Posted By on Mon, Feb 28, 2011 at 11:43 AM


The oft-threatened debut album from Memphis punk/garage favorites Chinamen will finally see the light of day this year, after much anticipation from the area's underground music community.

The self-titled effort was recorded at acclaimed local musician/producer Toby Vest's (of The Third Man, The Bulletproof Vests, etc.) Hi/Lo Recordings studio, and accurately captures the band's raunchy, explosive and highly catchy brand of rock 'n' roll.

Physical copies of the album in the form of vinyl LPs will be available later this year, and the band will stage a record release party - once they can put together the necessary funds for mass replication. In the meantime, however, they've very quietly made it available for digital consumption on a pay-what-you-can basis.

To listen to and/or download the new Chinamen album before its available in stores, go here.

Also, here's and video of the band performing at last year's Memphis Hates You festival:
