We have a deep love of Chicago’s grind masters, Sick/Tired who offer up some of the most deliciously brutal aural assaults this side of the Mississippi. Focused and full of rage, this latest split sees the band pushing their own sonic limits with blazing blasts matched by moody sludge-drenched riffs seeing this amalgamation sit somewhere between crusty grind, fast punk, and powerviolence. In short- This split fucking rules. And having some of extreme music’s best recording technicians doesn’t hurt either with recording by Andy Nelson at his Bricktop studios (Weekend Nachos, Dead In The Dirt), mix by Kevin Bernsten at his Developing Nations studios (Full Of Hell, Triac, Magrudergrind), and master by Brad Boatright at his Audiosiege studios (Nails, Code Orange, Die Choking)..Which should give you a fair idea of the sonic territory you are about to embark on. Featuring members that have done time in numerous Chicago-area mainstays, Sick/Tired offer one of the best live grind experiences is the US. Definitely a band to go see if they play anywhere in your region.
Without further ado..enjoy the Sick/Tired side of the split streaming in full below:
